In 2003, Chris Moneymaker turned an $86 satellite into a world championship in Las Vegas. That started an online poker revolution where any Tom, Dick and Harriet could now become a successful poker player, even going up against the big name pros.  It helped that Moneymaker got in at a time when the Internet was just getting started.

Fast forward 20 years and Chris is now an ACR Pro. And he wants to send you to Vegas to become a world champ as well.


Tournament Prizes

This promotion guarantees $1 Million total. Half will go to the Weekly Leaderboard Competition participants (running March 11th to May 28th) and the other half to players in the Final Tournament (June 4th-5th).

If you’re the Final Tournament winner you’ll get $100,000 cash to fund a summer of buy-ins in Vegas (or spend as you see fit). PLUS, a $15,000 all-expense paid package to play in the world’s most prestigious poker tournament.

How to Score Leaderboard Points

Every player who participates in one of the 13 Americas Cardroom Weekly Leaderboard Competitions earns 2,000 points, no matter where they finish.  In addition, players earn points based on their overall finish in each individual event.

At the end of the last leaderboard competition on May 28th, leaderboard points will be converted into chips for the final tournament. That means you’ll have a big advantage if you’ve done everything it takes to build a huge stack for the Main Event.

About the Main Event

• Day 1: Sunday, June 4th at 1:30pm ET
• Day 2: Monday, June 5th at 1:30pm ET

Every player who earns points during any of the 13 Weekly Leaderboard Competitions qualifies for points. 1 point earned = 1 chip carried forward to the Final Tournament.
