Americas Cardroom’s High Five: huge guarantees
Americas Cardroom is famous for its tournament series. There are some with huge guaranteed prize pools like their recently-completed $8 Million OSS Cub3d. That included two $1 Million events that both exceeded expectations.
Next up from the US-facing site is their High Five Tournament Series from April 17th-21st. This one isn’t nearly as big as the OSS Cub3d with $1.3 Million in guarantees, but there is plenty of great action over the five days for players of all bankroll levels.
These are the highlights:
• $1,300,000 in guaranteed prize pools
• $420,000 GTD Main Event on final day
• 25 added tournaments (5 per day)
• Buy-ins as low as $1+0.05
One of the interesting things about this tournament series is the marketing angle to it. This is the one with all the amusing “420” references. They even put their money where their mouth is with a 10-minute “courtesy break” each day at 4:20pm ET.
After the High Five ends, Americas Cardroom will be focusing a lot of their attention on their $5 Million guaranteed Venom tourney which has a $1 Million first-place prize. This multi-day event starts on July 16th and will be the biggest tourney ever offered by a US-facing site. To learn more about the $5 Million Venom, here.
