ACR has announced the dates for the third of its popular High Five Series and revealed that the tournaments will have combined guarantees totaling $420,000.
The next edition of Americas Cardroom´s High Five Series is scheduled to take place from Wednesday 29th October to Sunday 2nd November and will feature twenty-five tournaments (five each day) with combined guaranteed prize money of $420,000 up for grabs.
This will be the third time that Americas Cardroom (ACR) has hosted the High Five Series and Michael Harris – spokesperson for the site – said in the announcement of the dates
Third time’s a charm is an old expression, but it fits perfectly for this latest installment of the High Five tournament series.
The tournament schedule has been purposefully designed to account for all levels of buy-ins, and a comprehensive satellite schedule will enable players with limited bankrolls to qualify for the more valuable events. ACR is also repeating its “Passport” promotion, in which players can win packages of seats to the series´ feature events.
High Five Highlights
In a refreshing change to the norm, the highlights of the High Five Series are not cramped together during the final weekend of the series, but distributed evenly throughout the schedule. A $40,000 guaranteed NL Hold´em tournament is schedule for the first day of action, along with a 6-Max event and a PL Omaha Turbo Event.
Day 2 of the series includes a $20,000 guaranteed tournament and the first of two Mega Stack tournaments, while a $30,000 guaranteed event is the highlight of Friday´s action – a day on which 4-Max and 6-Max tournaments will also be hosted.
Saturday´s highlight is a 6-Max KO Bounty event, which has a buy-in of $160.00 including a $50.00 bounty, while the Main Event (guaranteed for $150,000) and the $530.00 buy-in High Rollers are the feature events on the final day of ACR´s High Five Series.
Satellites Include a Freeroll Path to the Main Event
ACR is providing players with a limited bankroll the opportunity to qualify for the more valuable events in the High Five series with a comprehensive satellite schedule that includes a two-stage “steps” program in which players can qualify for the $150,000 guaranteed High Five Main Event for free.
Each day at 1:00pm (ET) a freeroll satellite will award a minimum of three seats into the nightly Main Event qualifier (7:30pm). The nightly Main Event qualifier can be bought into directly for $6.60 and guarantees two seats (each worth $215.00) into the Main Event.
Ten more satellites are scheduled on each weekday to other High Five tournaments – with buy-ins starting from $0.55 – while on Saturdays and Sundays a host of qualifiers are scheduled with up to four seats guaranteed in the feature events of ACR´s High Five Series. You can see the full tournament and satellites schedules in ACR’s poker client.
Win a Passport to Six High Five Events
ACR is also giving players the opportunity to win seats into six of the feature events in a special passport tournament that takes place on Sunday 26th October at 6:00pm. The tournament has a direct buy-in of $55.00, or players can qualify through daily satellites running at 1:00pm (buy-in $5.50).
The package of seats has a value of $1,317.00 and includes entry to the $40,000 guaranteed tournament on Wednesday, a $12,000 guaranteed PL Omaha event on Thursday, Friday´s $20,000 guaranteed tournament and the 6-Max KO event on Saturday.
The major incentive for players to take part in the passport promotion is seats into the $150,000 guaranteed Main Event and $50,000 guaranteed High Rollers tournament on Sunday and – with a considerable amount of good fortune – it is conceivable that a winner of the passport promotion could pick up more than $50,000 in prize money!
