Americas Cardroom is changing the prize format of its Beast and Sit and Crush tournaments so that more players can qualify for the Punta Cana Poker Classic.
Americas Cardroom´s “Beast” and “Sit and Crush” promotions are weekly leaderboard competitions that reward the highest placed players with cash prizes and tourney tickets. The tourney tickets are good for special Beast and Sit and Crush tournaments that take place each Sunday at 6:00pm (ET) and 8:00pm (ET) respectively.
Americas Cardroom uses these two tournaments to qualify players for significant online and live poker events. In the past, Americas Cardroom has given away seats to its $1 million guaranteed “Million Dollar Sunday” tournament and, in recent months, has offering packages to the World Series of Poker Main Event.
With the WSOP Main Event due to start tomorrow, the chance to qualify for the event has passed. Consequently, from this coming Sunday, players who have won Beast and Sit and Crush tourney tickets will have the opportunity to win packages to the Punta Cana Poker Classic in the Dominican Republic from October 25th to October 31st.
About the Punta Cana Poker Classic
The Punta Cana Poker Classic is an annual event that takes place in the Dominican Republic in a luxury beachside resort overlooking the Caribbean. Now in its seventh year, the venue for this year´s event is the five-star Melia Caribe Tropical, where organizers have booked the “Level” section exclusively for players participating in the event and their guests.
The schedule for the Punta Cana Poker Classic includes a $500,000 guaranteed Main Event, a high rollers event and a selection of side events for fans of PLO and bounty tournaments. There will also be Jackpot Sit & Go games and plenty of cash action available throughout the week, as well as off-table activities to fill the day before the poker action gets underway.
