Take Advantage of ACR Satellites this Easter Weekend

Take Advantage of ACR Satellites this Easter WeekendThis Easter weekend there are some exciting opportunities to qualify for Americas Cardroom´s forthcoming High Five Series and the Million Dollar Sunday event.

This coming weekend is traditionally one of the quietest weekends of the year for online poker due to family vacations and religious convictions. It is also one of the best weekends to take advantage of low entry satellites offering a guaranteed number of seats into forthcoming tournaments.

Here in the PokerNewsReport office, we have complained in the past about the lack of mobile support on Americas Cardroom. However, the lack of mobile support will work to our advantage this Easter weekend, when it is likely that fewer players will be competing for seats in next week´s High Five Series and the Million Dollar Sunday event.

Americas Cardroom´s High Five Series

Americas Cardroom´s High Five Series is a tournament series of twenty-five events played between next Wednesday (April 8) and the following Sunday (April 12). Five tournaments are played each day over the five days of the series in a variety of disciplines and formats. Buy-ins start from just $2.20 and the series culminates with a million dollar guaranteed Main Event with a buy-in of $540.00.

The majority of the twenty-five tournaments will very much appeal to “poker purists” – with deep stacks, long levels and extended late registration periods. However, there are a handful of turbo and hyper-turbo tournaments to please players who want to get to bed at a reasonable hour and Omaha players will not be disappointed with the range of events included in the schedule – including a PL08 KO event on Saturday April 11.

The Million Dollar Sunday Tournament

The Million Dollar Sunday tournament is the Main Event of the High Five Series and gets underway on April 12 at 3:00pm (ET). Guaranteeing a million dollar prize pool and $200,000 to the winner, the tournament is sure to be popular – but will it result in an overlay? Quite possibly – despite five hours of late registration and unlimited re-entries during that period.

Due to the significant buy-in ($540.00) being beyond the bankroll of most players, Americas Cardroom has been hosting a comprehensive satellite schedule over the past few weeks. These culminate with a series of mega-satellites for the Main Event next week which guarantee a combined total of 440 seats into the target event, and it is these that we have targeted for our own route into Americas Cardroom´s Million Dollar Sunday.

Selecting the Best Satellites into Million Dollar Sunday

In our opinion, the best Million Dollar mega-satellites (on the basis of fewer players per number of guaranteed seats) take place on Wednesday April 8 at 3:30pm (ET) and Saturday April 11 at 6:30pm (ET). The Wednesday tournament has a buy-in of $27.50 and guarantees 40 seats into the Million Dollar Sunday, while Saturday´s tournament has a buy-in of $66.00 and guarantees 100 seats into the target event.

However, rather than wait until next week to invest more than a couple of hour´s pay into the mega-satellite tournaments, we have identified some sub-satellites that take place over the Easter weekend which guarantee seats into the above-mentioned mega-satellites.

  • This coming Friday (Good Friday) there is a sub-satellite at 3:30pm (ET) with a buy-in of just $4.40 that guarantees 15 seats into next Wednesday´s mega-satellite.
  • On Easter Sunday (at 3:30pm ET) a sub-satellite with a $11.00 buy-in guarantees twenty-five seats into the mega-satellite on Saturday April 11, and
  • If we miss out opportunity on Easter Sunday to qualify for the April 11 mega-satellite, a similar game with an $11.00 buy-in is scheduled for Easter Monday (at 7:30pm ET).

Satellites and sub-satellites for other events in Americas Cardroom´s High Five series will be added to the poker client this weekend – so keep a lookout for other tournaments that might provide some excellent value.

Freebuys are Back and a Reload Bonus

Easter Sunday also sees the return of Americas Cardroom´s popular “Freebuy” tournaments – tournaments with guaranteed prize pools which are free to enter, but which offer players the opportunity to re-buy chips and bump up their stack with an add-on at the end of the re-buy period. Three “Freebuy” tournaments are scheduled for Easter Sunday at 7:00am, 2:30pm and 10:00pm (all times ET), each with a guaranteed prize pool of $5,000. Check them out now in the tournament lobby.

Americas Cardroom is also offering a reload bonus to players from next Monday (April 6) until April 12. The bonus is a 100% match on reload deposits of up to $500 and is cleared at the rate of $5.00 per 120 Award Points (Award Points being awarded at the rate of 5.5 per $1.00 contributed to the rake or paid in tournament entry fees). Players have 45 days before the bonus expires and, to be eligible for this bonus, players must use the reload bonus code “HIGHFIVE” when making their deposit.
