About Friday´s USAFriendly $240K MEGA Sub-Satellite

The cards are in the air for Friday´s USAFriendly $240KMEGA sub-satellite at 5:00pm (ET) and, if the start time is a little early for you, there is two hours of late registration. Players receive a starting stack of 1,000 chips to negotiate their way through ten-minute levels, and by the time the last players jump into the sub-satellite (at the end of level twelve), the blinds will be 300/600 with a 60 chip ante.

Unlike some previous USAFriendly events, Friday´s $240K MEGA sub-satellite is a freezeout tournament (i.e. not a Freebuy tournament), so you can expect some fairly tight play. The tournament will continue until just ten players remain – all of whom will be awarded a seat in Sunday´s fifty seat mega-satellite to the Independence Day Sunday Special.

Friday Also a Great Day to Top Up Your Account

Over the holiday weekend, Americas Cardroom is also offering players the opportunity to take advantage of a reload bonus. From Friday 1st July until Monday 4th July, players making a deposit into their accounts using the Americas Cardroom bonus code “JULY4” will be eligible for a 100% match bonus on their deposit up to $240.00.

The bonus is cleared in the usual manner. Players have to collect Award Points for contributing to the rake deducted from cash game pots or for paying a fee to enter a Sit & Go game or multitable tournament. The bonus is released in increments of $5.00 each time a player collects 120 Award Points, and players are allowed up to thirty days to clear as much of the reload bonus as possible.

The sharp-eyed among you will notice that the clearance rate for the Americas Cardroom reload bonus is slightly better than for the first deposit bonus ($5.00 per 137.50 Award Points). The site has not shared the logic behind this with us, but we assume this is due to the [geolink href=””]Americas Cardroom Welcome Package[/geolink] consisting of more than just a 100% on first deposits up to $1,000 (for example, new players are eligible for up to twenty days of free Jackpot Poker).

Another Million Dollar Sunday Coming in August has also learned that another Million Dollar Sunday is being planned by Americas Cardroom for August. According to our sources, the $1 million guaranteed tournament will headline a “Bigger Online Super Series” (BOSS) – potentially the most valuable tournament series ever to be hosted at the site.

It is also likely that will be running a similar promotion to this Friday´s USAFriendly $240K MEGA Sub-Satellite, so be sure to bookmark our [geolink href=””]poker news page[/geolink] and visit often to be kept up-to-date on the latest news from Americas Cardroom.
