  • The Sunday tournaments have proven especially popular with massive payouts
  • Ongoing through last two weekends in September
  • Well known players streaming on social media are selling a piece of themselves for these events
  • ACR also announces Online Super Series XIV

Due to popular demand, the $2650 buy-in Million Dollar Sundays will continue through the rest of September under the name Million Dollar Sundays Encore Tournament.  These tournaments feature massive prize pools.

This tournament does have a completely different structure than any previous tournament on the Winning Poker Network.  There are 15 minute levels and 6 hours of late registration.

Well known players will also be streaming on social media and are selling a piece of themselves for these events, including Thomas Cannuli, Jeff Gross, Michael Loncar, Vanessa Kade.

Top well known pros are coming over to play these tournament even while other major tournament series are on (WCOOP and Powerfest) : ex) Omaha4Rollz who won the 1st MDS Encore Event for $205,333 (September 9th).

These tournaments have proven extremely successful since launching with zero overlay (amazing!) and the prize pools are climbing substantially.  Gambling911.com is hearing murmurs that these tournaments could carry through into October.

Phil Nagy, CEO of Americas Cardroom, tells us: “These big buy-in/small field tournaments service the high stakes market which is currently not being catered too.  Over the past couple of years, high stakes players have had their VIP rewards either taken away or dramatically reduced on other sites.  

"High stakes players are considered a demographic that is undesirable by our competitors.  We don’t agree with this stance, which is why we continue to roll out products for them, like these $2,650 buy-in tournaments or the $50/$100 7-Day No Rathole Tables.  Poker players shouldn’t be punished for being good at what they do.”

Additionally, ACR has announced Online Super Series XIV is coming up shortly.

The next OSS is coming during the period October 3rd to 14th (2018).  These tournaments will be debuting Six Plus Hold’em tournaments for the first time ever.  More information can be found here.
