Since Sunday September 13th, Americas Cardroom has paid out $4.5 million in its “5 Million Dollar Guaranteed Series”, and this Sunday – November 8th – sees the final event of the series, with a further $500,000 up for grabs.

The series has not been plain sailing for Americas Cardroom. DDoS attacks and subsequent overlays caused a restructuring of the series half way through, but the site persevered with the series – honoring the guarantees and ensuring that winners were quickly paid.

To encourage more players to get involved in the series as it draws to a close, Americas Cardroom has expanded its satellite program to include multiple freeroll opportunities. is delighted to have been included in this expansion, and we will be hosting TWO freeroll qualifiers this coming Saturday – November 7th.

About the Million Dollar Sunday $500K Guaranteed

The Million Dollar Sunday (MDS) $500K guaranteed event is so-called because it forms the highlight of the Sunday schedule at Americas Cardroom that, in total, guarantees a million dollars in prize pools. The feature tournament kicks off at 5:00pm (ET) and has a buy-in of $270.

Players start with 10,000 chips to negotiate the gently increasing 15-minute levels, and there is five hours of late registration and re-entry (20 levels), so players jumping in or re-entering at the last minute will have ten big blinds at their disposal.

Historically, the MDS $500K Guaranteed has paid more than two hundred places deep, with a min-cash worth $500. The winner of the tournament is guaranteed $100,000 (subject to any final table deals), and every player who reaches the final table is assured a minimum of $9,000 and a free cashout.

This Saturday (tomorrow – November 7th), will be hosting TWO freeroll qualifiers which reward players finishing in the top ten of each tournament with seats in paid-for sub-satellites.

Both freerolls are scheduled for 12:00 noon (ET) – one feeding into the 15 seat guaranteed sub-satellite on Saturday at 4:45pm (ET), the other feeding into Sunday´s 15 seat guaranteed sub-satellite at 12:05pm (ET).
