Americas Cardroom’s MOSS II Series ‘Wildly Successful’

Just in time for President's Day, Americas Cardroom is handing out more Benjamins than everyone expected. The online poker site confirmed that the first weekend of its MOSS II series was wildly successful, with almost $21,000 more paid out than what had been guaranteed. The Mini Online Super Series II resumed Monday at 10am, events running until 10pm ET.

"The first weekend of our MOSS II series has been a big success, both for those in search of guarantee-surpassing prize pools and those who love overlays," stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "We've had a few events double in prize guarantees and several events jump over the guarantee by a few thousand. But we've also had a few guarantees with some healthy overlays, including the $75k on Sunday. That means a narrower field for poker players to crush, so Texas Hold'em and Omaha players should be pretty excited about what's in store for the rest of February."

The first weekend of MOSS II saw total prize pools of $195,390.31 handed out over 30 events. While total overlays added up to $17,077.76, only a handful of events featured overlays. That included the $75,000 guaranteed tournament, which had an overlay of $10,700. However, with many events paying out more than what had been guaranteed, the series has so far paid out almost $21,000 more than the original $174,750 guaranteed so far over the weekend.

From February 15th through 24th, Americas Cardroom is guaranteeing over $520,000 in 100 events spread out over 10 days. The series includes 90 Hold'em events and 10 Omaha events. The MOSS II scheduled features 10 events each day, running from 10am ET through 10pm ET.

Guarantees in MOSS II range from $300 all the way up to $100,000. Buy-ins come in at as low as $2+0.20. The MOSS II series also includes a leaderboard competition that tracks every player's results over the course of the series. By ranking on the leaderboard, poker players can earn tournament entries to a number of nightly events, plus a seat in the next OSS III $200+15 tournament.

Online poker players who are looking to get into MOSS II for free can take advantage of a limited-time promotion. Any player who makes a deposit to their Americas Cardroom account in February is automatically entered into a $2,500 freeroll that guarantees 25 seats in the MOSS II $100k GTD event. The freeroll kicks off on February 24th.
