Americas Cardroom Launches Early Satellites for $900K Online Super Series III

San Jose, Costa Rica – While New Jersey and Nevada online poker sites struggle to push their guarantees above five figures, one national online poker site is going all in by dropping $900,000 in guarantees on the table this March. Americas Cardroom today announced the return of its popular Online Super Series.

Dubbed OSS, the third installment of the popular weeklong tournament series will feature a staggering $900,000 in guarantees, including a $200,000 Main Event. In an unanticipated move, Americas Cardroom is launching satellites for the series this Saturday, January 17th, much earlier than usual.

"Our community is growing by leaps and bounds, and while we've made the live tournament circuit a main part of our world with the Punta Cana Poker Classic and the upcoming LSOP Millions, we're returning to our roots this April with our famous Online Super Series," stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. "And we've decided to get an early start by launching satellites this weekend."

From March 28th to April 6th, Americas Cardroom will spread out $900,000 in guarantees over 63 separate online poker tournaments. Buy-ins for the tournaments range from just $0.52 to $530. Available tournaments include re-entries, re-buys, and add-ons.

The Online Super Series culminates with a $200,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em tourney on Sunday April 6th at 5:00pm ET. The event costs just $200+15 to get into and a number of low buy-in satellites for the tournament are now live. The event offers re-entries for the first five hours.

Satellites for OSS III are now live at Americas Cardroom. More information on the 2014 Online Super Series is available at AmericasCardroom.eu.
