Americas Cardroom – famous for its progressive rake race promotion “The Beast” – is introducing a new progressive Sit n Go challenge on its site – “Sit n Crush”
“Sit n Crush” will appeal to players who enjoy playing Sit n Go tournaments and, unlike the Beast progressive rake race, no additional money is paid by players who want to participate in the promotion.
Players earn points just for playing in Sit n Go events – irrespective of where they finish in the game – with 25 percent of the regular fee charged for participating in the event being designated towards a “Sit n Crush” prize pool.
The more Sit n Gos that players participate in, the more points are earned and the players with the highest number of points will be rewarded with cash prizes and tournament vouchers for seats in Americas Cardroom´s feature events.
How Sit n Go Crush Points are Awarded
Sit n Go Crush points are awarded according to the value of the Sit n Go tournament, at a rate of 5 points per dollar contributed towards the prize pool. Therefore, in a standard $10.00 + $1.00 nine-max Sit n Go, $0.25 of the $1.00 entry fee will be allocated to the prize pool and each player will receive 1.25 points.
A higher points value will be awarded for players participating in Americas Cardroom “On Demand” Sit n Go games, with all players playing in the On Demand games receiving double points, while “Early Birds” – those who register for an On Demand game before it gets going – will receive quadruple points.
Please be aware that Americas Cardroom charges lower fees for playing “Turbo”, “6-Max”,and “Double or Nothing” Sit n Gos, so the entry fee on a $10.00 tournament will not always be $1.00 and points will be awarded accordingly (Please note, HUSNGs are not included in the promotion).
Who Gets Paid What?
As the prize pool increases, so will the number of players who cash in the promotion – much like a multitable tournament. Americas Cardroom reckon that if the prize pool reaches $50,000, then the top 200 places will get paid out – should it grow to $90,000, then the top 360 players will get paid.
As the prizes are divided between cash awards and tournament tickets (70 percent cash awards/30 percent tournament tickets) a player winning the promotion with a $50,000 prize pool would collect $4,875 just for playing in Sit n Go games, with no premium added to the entry fee for playing.
As the value of the prize pool increases, the first place prize – and all the other prizes – will increase. Winners are assured of 13 percent of the cash prize pool ($XXX *.7 *.13) and Americas Cardroom have guaranteed the initial “Sit n Crush” cash prize pool at $20,000 (winner guaranteed $1,820).
When Does the Promotion Run?
The initial Sit N Crush promotion runs on Americas Cardroom until the end of December, and a real-time leaderboard will advise players of exactly how many points they have earned – and how many points they need to get to the top of the Sit n Crush leaderboard – throughout the month.
This is a really good opportunity for low-stakes players and recreational players to get something back from Americas Cardroom, as the highest volume of Sit n Go games are played at micro and low stakes, and at peak times. Consequently the high stakes multitablers will not find it so easy to climb to the top of the leaderboard and keep all the decent prizes for themselves, as they often do with Americas Cardroom´s “Beast” rake race.
Good luck at the (Sit n Crush) tables!
