Americas Cardroom launches On Demand Tournaments and Preferred Seating in latest software update

12 September 2013

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Who says poker players have to wait forever for the next big tournament to start? Americas Cardroom today announced the launch of On Demand Tournaments, a cross between Sit 'n Go tournaments and multi-table tournaments offering the best of both worlds. The feature is part of a software update that also includes a Preferred Seating feature.

"Here we go again, enhancing our software with new features that are driven by player feedback," said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. "On Demand Tournaments are designed for every player who wants to experience the heated competition of a large-scale multi-table tournament without having to wait for a scheduled start time. We know they're going to be hugely popular."

Just like Sit 'n Go events, On Demand Tournaments begin the second the specified number of players have been seated in the tournament. For example, in an On Demand tournament with 50 available open seats, the tournament will get underway as soon as all 50 seats are filled. The tournament will then fall into late registration and will continue to accept player buy-ins for a specific period of time just as a regular multi-table tournament.

There are no scheduled start times associated with On Demand Tournaments, making them ideal for poker players who prefer not to play on a specific schedule.

On Demand Tournaments isn't the only addition to Americas Cardroom. The US-friendly online poker site has also introduced Preferred Seating. Poker players can now choose their preferred seat when sitting down in heads-up, 6-handed, 8-handed, and 9-handed poker games. Poker players can preset their preferred seats, and when they sit down to play, the table will automatically rotate to seat them in their preferred position.

Existing players can access the latest software update by launching the Americas Cardroom software on their PC. New players can access the latest update by downloading the Americas Cardroom software from
