Americas Cardroom prepares for first Million Dollar Sunday of October

1 October 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Halloween is on October 31, but online poker players don’t have to wait until then to be treated to something amazing. This Sunday, Americas Cardroom will host the 2nd Million Dollar Sunday tournament of its $5 Million Guaranteed promotion. This is the first of four Million Dollar Sunday tournaments in October and the second in the 5-tournament series.

“Another Sunday, another million,” said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “With 250 guaranteed seats leading into the tournament this weekend, we think this could be the biggest one yet. We’re looking forward to seeing new faces in the tournament and welcoming back familiar ones, including WSOP November Nine member Joshua Beckley, who livestreamed the last tournament on Twitch and who will be playing again this weekend.”

The Million Dollar Sunday is Americas Cardroom’s $1 million guaranteed tournament that has completely changed the landscape for poker players in the United States. On September 13, Americas Cardroom’s $1 million guaranteed poker tournament featured an overlay of over $225,000. While many online poker sites would have cancelled a tournament with an overlay that big, Americas Cardroom reaffirmed its commitment to keeping things moving regardless of how many entries are on the table.

The September 13 overlay should help attract players in droves to Americas Cardroom, especially those who are expecting to contend with a smaller field. However, Americas Cardroom is pushing more players than ever to the October 4 tournament through a series of Mega Satellites this weekend, so the potential for the guarantee to be eclipsed is bigger than ever.

On October 2, Americas Cardroom is hosting a Mega Satellite at 7:30 p.m. ET, which feeds 50 players into the Million Dollar Sunday, guaranteed. On Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET, another 100-seat guarantee is on the schedule. Those who miss the boat can still make their way in through a 100-seat Monster Satellite on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET, the day of the tournament.

All Mega Satellites cost just $60+6 to get into and there are Super Satellites feeding into them all weekend long. Poker players can also enter daily Freebuy Satellites to claim their seat to the supers.

The Million Dollar Sunday takes place this Sunday, October 4 at 3 p.m. ET and guarantees a first place prize of $200,000. More information on the Million Dollar Sunday, including a full satellite schedule, can be found at Americas Cardroom.
