20 LSOP Millions Packages on the Line in Two Separate Tournaments

San Jose, Costa Rica – If there was any indication that online poker in the US is shaping up to be double rewarding in 2014, this is it. Popular online poker site Americas Cardroom is hosting two separate tournaments that guarantee 10 packages each for the $1 million guaranteed LSOP Millions, a land-based poker tournament set to get underway this March in Panama.

The two tournaments, which take place this Sunday at 6:00pm ET, were built for winners of last month's Beast and Sit & Crush competitions, but poker players from all over the world are invited to buy into them.

"Our goal is to award more players with more LSOP packages this year, so we thought we'd kick the year off by hosting more tournaments than ever," stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "This Sunday, we're kicking things into overdrive by throwing 20 packages on the table, spread out over two high energy poker tournaments. With multi-tabling at Americas Cardroom, players can hop into both tourneys for twice the opportunity win their way to Panama."

The two 10-package guarantees feature players from last month's Sit & Crush leaderboard competition and the second half of December's Beast competition. Players who ranked on the leaderboard earn a tournament seat, however any poker player with a real-money online poker account at Americas Cardroom can buy into either tourney.

Both 10-package guarantees take place this Sunday, January 12th at 6pm ET. Each No Limit Hold'em tournament costs $50+5 to get into and guarantees to pay out at least 10 packages for the LSOP Millions. Each package includes: the LSOP Millions Main Event buy-in, valued at $750+100; 6-night hotel accommodation (double occupancy) at Hard Rock Megapolis Panama, a 5-star hotel; breakfast; $20 daily credit to spend in the hotel bar; access to a 24/7 VIP support line during the event; Gift Bag; and $750 Cash for travel expenses.

The LSOP Millions is set to get underway at Majestic Casino in Panama from March 7th through 15th. The land-based tournament is revolutionizing how players qualify for the event. The LSOP Millions features multiple Day 1 events happening all over the world—several weeks before the action in Panama begins. Players who make it through Day 1 in their city will earn a seat at the Day 2 table in Panama. This provides players with an opportunity to make the money before they even hop on a plane. Day 1 will also be held in Panama, and players who win a seat through the 10-package satellites at Americas Cardroom will play Day 1 there.
