Americas Cardroom hosts Million Dollar Warmup tournament series

14 July 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Practice your chip shuffling and stretch your fingers so they're in peak condition to click ‘Raise.’ Americas Cardroom today announced the Million Dollar Warmup, a $1.5 million guaranteed tournament series leading up to the Million Dollar Sunday, the much-anticipated $1 million guarantee scheduled for August 2. The online poker series kicks off on July 30 and gives players countless opportunities to sharpen their game and win big along the way.

“We can't wait for the Million Dollar Sunday, so we've decided to lay more on the table in the days leading up to it,” said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “The Million Dollar Warmup gives players of all stake levels lots of opportunity to boost their bankroll and claim victory before the Million Dollar Sunday rolls around.”

The next Million Dollar Sunday, which takes place on August 2 at 3 p.m. ET, is the third Million Dollar Sunday tournament of the year. The event features a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, with $200,000 earmarked for the first place winner. Americas Cardroom introduced the frequent $1 million online poker tournament earlier this year to much fanfare. It had been nearly four years since US poker players saw a Sunday million dollar poker tournament. Thanks to Americas Cardroom's huge popularity in the United States, the online poker site was able to return to the glory days of poker.

The Million Dollar Warmup begins on Thursday, July 30th at 3pm ET with a $2,000 guarantee and features $65,000 in guarantees spread throughout the afternoon and evening, leading up to midnight. The schedule repeats itself on Friday, giving players $130,000 in guarantees before the weekend even kicks off.

On Saturday, an additional $32,000 is on the table, and Sunday will see another $135,000 offered between 1 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET. With the mega satellites to the Sunday Million within the series, players can also look forward to plenty of opportunities to qualify for the Main Event.

Noted Harris, "With the Million Dollar Sunday's $1 million guarantee in the mix, there's $1.5 million on the table over the course of four days. Definitely not a bad way to end July and kick off August."

More information on the Million Dollar Sunday, plus a full schedule for the Million Dollar Warmup, can be found on the Americas Cardroom website.
