The next Million Dollar Sunday at Americas Cardroom is scheduled for April 24, and will be the highlight of a seventy-six tournament Online Super Series.
Americas Cardroom´s Million Dollar Sundays are becoming legendary. Originally considered to be a gimmick that would cost the online poker site a packet, Americas Cardroom successfully hosted seven events last year in the Million Dollar series.
On Sunday April 24, there will again be a million dollars up for grabs when Americas Cardroom hosts another $1 million guaranteed tournament, this time as the feature event in the site´s Online Super Series VI – a series of seventy-six tournaments with a wide range of formats and buy-ins.
The Online Super Series VI runs for ten days from Friday April 15 and guarantees more than $2.5 million in combined guaranteed prize pools. The series also includes three mega-satellites to the Million Dollar Sunday Main Event – guaranteeing a minimum of 250 seats.
About the Million Dollar Sunday
The Million Dollar Sunday event gets underway at 4:00pm (ET) on Sunday April 24. The buy-in for the event is $540.00; but, in additional to the three mega-satellites, Americas Cardroom will be hosting a comprehensive qualifying schedule that will start at freeroll level.
The tournament has unlimited re-entries and late registration for 20 levels (five hours), by which time the blinds will be 500/1,000 (ante 100). As the starting stack for the event is 10,000 chips, players entering at the last minute will have ten big blinds to spin up into a life-changing cash (the first prize is guaranteed at $200,000).
Despite the popularity of the event, an overlay is practically assured. None of the previous seven Million Dollar Sunday tournaments have reached their guarantee and – due to the deep payout structure – some 250 players or more are likely to finish the tournament in profit. It is an event well worth playing in and trying to qualify for as cheaply as possible!
About the Online Super Series VI
The seventy-six events in the Online Super Series VI have been planned to suit all nature of players. The format of tournaments range from hyper-turbos to deepstack events with extended levels. Players can choose from 4-Max, 6-Max and full ring events in NL Hold´em, PL Omaha and PL Omaha Hi/Lo, with plenty of knockout events sprinkled throughout the schedule.
Buy-ins start from just $0.06, and there are some fairly generous guarantees in the lower buy-in tournaments – for example, an hour after the Million Dollar Sunday event gets underway, a $3.30 buy-in re-buy and add-on tournament guarantees a prize pool of $3,000.
Aside from the Million Dollar Sunday, a further fifteen events have guaranteed prize pools of $25,000 or more and, on the two Sundays of the Online Super Series VI, the site´s regular “Sunday Special” tournament – already the most valuable online poker tournament accessible by players in the US – is having its guarantee raised to $300,000 (April 17) and $200,000 (April 24).
