Americas Cardroom unveils new points race

31 January 2012

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica –- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Online poker players who miss the dealt rake method poker sites once used to calculate rewards now have a big reason to make a run for Americas Cardroom (Doyles Room). The U.S.-friendly online poker site today announced its largest monthly Points Race yet —- a $100,000 test of endurance that includes a $60,000 monthly Points Race and four weekly races worth another $40,000. The $40k Points Race, exclusively for cash game players, will use a dealt rake method to calculate leaderboard points. It's a system that hardcore grinders will love.

"This month, we've got something for diehard tournament players, and something big for those who love to do damage exclusively in Ring Games," stated Michael Harris, spokesman for Americas Cardroom. "And with $100,000 in free money on the table, just for playing, Americas Cardroom is the place to play this February."

Unlike smaller races held in previous months where players had to wait until the end of the month to get paid, the $100k Points Race is made up of two separate point races—a $60 Marathon that runs for an entire month, and a $40k Sprint that pays players every week.

Online poker players who play real-money poker at Americas Cardroom will automatically participate in the $60k Marathon, earning points toward a month-long leaderboard competition that awards the top 275 players with $60,000 in prize money.

The $40k Sprint is made up of four separate $10k Point Races. It works the same way as the month-long marathon, but only points earned in Ring Games count toward the $40k Sprint leaderboard. Each week, 125 winners will share in $10,000, with first place earning $2,000.
