Americas Cardroom moves tournament series to Sunday at 7 p.m. ET

3 April 2012

San Jose, Costa Rica (PRESS RELEASE) -- As the poker world gets ready to mark the 1-year anniversary of Black Friday later this month, it appears that online poker has changed for the better—at least at one US-friendly online poker site. Americas Cardoom's Liberty Weekends promotion is proving to be an incredible success, with hundreds of poker players joining the tables for the kickoff weekend of the $500,000 series.

Last Saturday, Americas Cardroom kicked off Liberty Weekends, five weekends of online poker tournaments featuring half-a-million dollars in guaranteed prize pools. The inaugural event, a $10,000 Guaranteed, saw its prize pool propped up to $13,400 thanks to the 140 players who registered for the tournament. Online poker player alamutt1 took first place for $3,082.

The $50k on Sunday was equally impressive with a field of 178 battling for the $50,000 Guaranteed prize pool. Online poker player nowitsover ended the game as the last man standing for $11,250.

To accommodate even more poker players, the Sunday tournaments have been pushed back by an hour. The No Limit Hold'em online poker tournaments will now get underway at 7:00 p.m. ET. The $50k Guarantees will also award 1,000 points in this month's $60k Points Race, while the $10k tournaments at 9:00pm ET on Saturdays will award 200 points in the $60k Points Race.

Liberty Weekends reach their highpoint in a $250,000 Guaranteed poker tournament on April 15th at 7:00 p.m. ET, the anniversary of Black Friday. Online poker players can win their seat right now through a satellite, or buy directly in. The $250k will award 7,500 points in April's $60k Points Race.

For those who are all about waiting until the last minute, Americas Cardroom is holding a 250-Seat Super Satellite on April 13th for the Liberty Quarter Million. All players who enter the satellite will earn 1,000 points for April's Points Race.
