Americas Cardroom to Host $150K Freebuy Tournament SeriesAmericas Cardroom is hosting a tournament series of fifty-seven events from Friday May 8 with no buy-ins and $150,000 guaranteed in prize money.

“Freebuy” tournaments are a fairly new innovation at Americas Cardroom. They are online poker tournaments that cost nothing to enter, but have unlimited re-buys for the first three hours before the option of an add-on is offered to players. Thereafter the tournaments continue like a freezeout event until a winner is declared.

Freeroll tournaments with re-buys and add-ons are by no means a new concept – PokerStars, 888 Poker and a handful of other online poker sites have been running them for years. But never before has there been a freeroll/freebuy tournament series along the lines of what Americas Cardroom has scheduled between May 8 and May 17.

ACR´s $150,000 Freebuy Tournament Series

The Freebuy tournament series kicks off on Friday May 8 with five tournaments staggered throughout the day to give the maximum number of players the opportunity to participate. Over the next nine days, fifty-two more tournaments are scheduled with various guarantees depending on the cost of re-buys/add-ons, and the time and type of game. For example, Friday´s schedule looks like this:

Event Time (ET) Game Re-Buy Add-On Guarantee
#1 5:00am NLHE $0.50 $0.50 $500
#2 11:00am NLHE $0.10 $0.10 $500
#3 3:00pm PLO $2.00 $2.00 $1,500
#4 6:00pm NLHE $5.00 $5.00 $5,000
#5 9:00pm NLHE $3.00 $3.00 $3,000

There is a good mix of NLHE, PLO and PLO8 tournaments throughout the series, and the biggest Freebuy tournament of them all takes place on Sunday 17 May at 5:30pm (ET) – a free-to-enter tournament with re-buys and add-ons of $20.00 and a guaranteed prize pool of $20,000!

Win a Trip to the Punta Cana Poker Classic – for Free!

Running alongside the Freebuy Tournament Series, Americas Cardroom will be hosting a leaderboard competition offering a single prize of a trip to the 2015 Punta Cana Poker Classic. Players who compete in the Freebuy Poker Series will be awarded points depending on their finishing positions, and the points will accumulate throughout the series until a winner is declared on Sunday 17th May.

The prize consists of entry into the $500,000 guaranteed Punta Cana Classic Main Event (from 3 November to 8 November), $800 towards travel expenses, six nights accommodation at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana, all you can eat and drink, and $1,500 in resort credits.
