Americas Cardroom will host a 57-event series with zero buy-ins and a guaranteed prize of $150,000 from May 8.
Called “freebuy” tournaments, this highly innovative series is available only at Americas Cardroom. Each tournament has a buy-in of $0, but has unlimited re-buys for its first three hours, after which players can utilize the add-on option. The tournament then continues as a freezeout till the champion emerges.
However, Americas Cardroom is not the first online poker operator to think about the concept of such freerolls with add-ons and re-buys. A few online poker rooms such as 888poker and PokerStars have been running freebuy tournaments for the past several years. But Americas Cardroom is the first to organize such a huge series of freebuys.
The Freebuy Tournament Series at Americas Cardroom will begin on May 8 with five events, spread all over the day to give as many players as possible the chance to take part. Fifty-two tournaments will be spread over the following nine days.
The series comprises a number of PLO8, PLO, and NLHE tournaments. The biggest of all these events will be played on May 17, a Sunday, at 5:30 p.m. It is a free-to-enter tourney with add-ons and re-buys of $20 and a guaranteed prize of $20,000.
Currently, Americas Cardroom has a new page devoted to these freebuy tournaments.
In addition, Americas Cardroom will be organizing a leader board event, which gives the topper a chance to win a trip to the Punta Cana Poker Classic 2015. All freebuy participants will be given points depending on their performance, and the player with the largest number of points will be rewarded on May 17.
The prize package comprises a free seat to the Punta Cana Classic Main Event, which offers a guaranteed prize pool of $500,000; a six-night stay at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino; $800 in travel expenses; charges for food and drinks; and $1,500 resort credits.
There is plenty of free poker money at Americas Cardroom. New players can grab a cash match bonus of 100% up to $1000, absolutely free. In addition, loyal players are rewarded in the most royal manner. Players can grab more free poker money by taking part in leader board contests and weekly rake races. The online poker room is currently holding qualifiers for its Million Dollar Sunday, scheduled for August 2.
In addition, the online poker room runs several promotions, which players can use to plump their bankrolls.
