USAFriendlyPokerSites is teaming up with Americas Cardroom on Wednesday to offer players the chance of a seat in a High Five Main Event Mega-Satellite.
Later this week, [geolink href=”https://www.usafriendlypokersites.com/americas-cardroom/”]Americas Cardroom[/geolink] will be hosting its most valuable High Five tournament series to date. The five-events-for-five-days extravaganza runs from Wednesday until Sunday and guarantees the twenty-five tournaments for a total of $977,500 in prize money.
Despite the value of the prize money, nobody is excluded from taking part in the High Five tournament series. Buy-ins start at just $3.30, plus Americas Cardroom has scheduled a comprehensive range of low buy-in satellites for the more valuable tournaments.
The most valuable tournament of them all takes place on Sunday at 4:00pm (all times ET). The $455.00 buy-in High Five Main Event has a prize pool guaranteed at $420,000, plus the winner of the tournament will receive a sterling silver bracelet engraved with the words “I Smoked the High Five”.
Qualify for the High Five ME via Mega-Satellites
Among the low buy-in satellites for the High Five series are three Mega-Satellites guaranteeing a minimum of 110 seats into the Main Event. The three qualifiers each have a buy-in of $66.00, but you can qualify for Sunday´s 50-seat Mega-Satellite at 12:00 noon via our special USAFriendlyPokerSites High Five Freebuy tournament this coming Wednesday (October 19) at 6:45pm.
Our special High Five Freebuy tournament is a typical Americas Cardroom Freebuy event. The tournament costs nothing to enter and you have the option of rebuys for $0.50 during the first 18 levels of the event. At the end of the re-buy period there is the option of an add-on for $1.00 – a quite substantial one of 10,000 chips that can be the difference between winning a prize and having your chip stack swallowed by the rapidly-increasing blinds. Blinds by now are 600/1,200 with a 120 chip ante.
We have seven $66.00 Mega-Satellite Tickets up for grabs for the top seven players. All of our winners will automatically be entered into Sunday´s 50-seat Mega -Satellite, so please make sure you can play in the target event before entering our Freebuy tournament on Wednesday. The end of the Mega-Satellite is likely to overlap with the beginning of the Main Event, so it could be a long non-stop session.
The USAFriendlyPokerSites High Five Freebuy tournament will soon be announced in Americas Cardroom´s “Tourney” lobby, and you will be able to find the event under the “Freeroll” tab. Please note that registration for the event is password protected and you will have to enter the USAFriendlyPokerSites password “H595899” in order to register for the event.
Wednesday a Big Day at Americas Cardroom
Not only does Wednesday mark the start of the High Five series and the USAFriendlyPokerSites Freebuy, but it is also when the next $1,000 buy-in Cage event will take place. This weekly five-hour cash-game-come-tournament will be much bigger this coming Wednesday than in recent weeks due to twenty-one players qualifying for the event via last Sunday´s “Beast” and “Sit & Crush” tournaments.
In case you didn´t know, Americas Cardroom hosts two tournaments on a Sunday evening for players who have finished in a high position in either of the site´s leaderboard competitions. These tournaments can also be bought into directly for $55.00, and usually offer players seats in a large forthcoming tournament or (more recently) packages to an Americas Cardroom sponsored live event.
Last Sunday´s “Beast” and “Sit & Crush” tournaments offered ten seats and four seats respectively into Wednesday´s Cage event. However, such was the opportunity to qualify for the Cage for a relatively small buy-in, that the two events both paid out 50% more seats than their guarantees. With such a fantastic response to last Sunday´s tournaments, Americas Cardroom will be running them again this coming Sunday.
This coming Wednesday looks like the start of a very busy – and potentially very lucrative – period at Americas Cardroom. Make sure you don´t miss out on the action.[prbutton room=”americascardroom”]
