Americas Cardroom Trumps PokerStars with $1,372,000 Million Dollar Sunday.
Turns out the real star of the online poker world is Americas Cardroom. The US facing online poker site hosted its biggest-ever Million Dollar Sunday tournament. The event, which came with a $1 million guarantee, boasted a final prize pool of $1,372,000.
“The people have spoken and are choosing Americas Cardroom over the competition,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “To put things in perspective, last night on PokerStars, their $1 million Sunday tourney saw a final prize pool of $1,078,400. Ours saw nearly $300,000 more. This is huge for our growing community and a testament to the fact that ACR continues to give players what they want. We can’t wait to see what’s next.”
The Million Dollar Sunday was the Main Event of the Online Super Series, the second leg of the currently-running OSS Cub3d, a 3-part online tournament series. The series features $5.7 million in guarantees, a number that will be far exceeded thanks to ACR’s thriving community that keeps prize pools large.
Last night’s tournament ended with a 4-way final table deal: BluckBlucka ($150,543), PokerTrader77 ($146,061), RiskedUnderO ($141,089) and Oldflat ($141,048). The four continued to play for the 1st place title and $20,000 on top. PokerTrader77 left the table as the champion, driving his total win to $166,061 and earning him the Million Dollar Sunday sterling silver bracelet.
The first Million Dollar Sunday took place in February of 2015 and came with a $100,000 overlay. There were six more $1,000,000 GTDs that year, all of which resulted in overlays. However, Americas Cardroom continued to host the tourneys and build up its community.
Finally, in April 2016, Americas Cardroom hosted its first Million Dollar Sunday with a prize pool above the guarantee. And Americas Cardroom has now covered in its last four $1,000,000 GTDs overall.
Yesterday’s record-setting Million Dollar Sunday should come as no surprise to anyone following the OSS Cub3d. The series has featured no overlays, a trend that looks likely to continue with the BOSS, the third leg set to get underway on Wednesday, May 3rd. The series culminates with a $750,000 guarantee this Sunday, a number that could very well exceed the $1 million mark.
