Three mega satellites are scheduled for the end of this week, allowing players to qualify for Sunday´s million dollar tournament at a fraction of the buy-in.
This coming Sunday – 4th October – Americas Cardroom will host the first of four Million Dollar Sundays. Each of the four tournaments has a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million dollars, but they also have a bankroll busting buy-in of $540.00.
Consequently, Americas Cardroom is offering players the opportunity to qualify for the most valuable poker tournament open to US poker players through a series of mega satellites that guarantee a minimum of 250 seats into Sunday´s event.
Each of the mega satellites also has a selection of feeder sub-satellites – the most popular of which will undoubtedly be the “Deadline” events – plus a host of alternative ways in which players can qualify for the Million Dollar Sunday tournament at a fraction of the buy-in.
The Mega Satellite Schedule
The three mega satellites take place on Friday and Saturday at 7:30pm (buy-in $66.00) and on Sunday at 11:30am (buy-in $88.00) – just hours before the Million Dollar Sunday tournament gets underway at 3:00pm (all times ET).
Friday´s mega satellite guarantees a minimum of fifty seats to the target event, while the top hundred players in each of Saturday´s and Sunday´s mega satellites guarantee a minimum of one hundred seats into the million dollar tournament.
Two “Deadline” sub-satellites with a buy-in of $8.80 are scheduled to take place before each of the mega satellites, guaranteeing either twenty-five or fifty seats into the mega satellite tournaments; and there is a special fifteen seat “Super-Satellite” scheduled for Saturday afternoon (4:45pm – buy-in $11.00) which will appeal to players who prefer a freezeout structure rather than unlimited re-entries.
“On Demand” Sit & Go Qualifiers also Available
For players who prefer smaller fields, Americas Cardroom is hosting special “On Demand” Sit & Go qualifiers that guarantee seats directly into the million dollar tournament. “On Demand” Sit & GO games get underway when a pre-determined number of players have registered, and then continue as a multi table tournament with re-buts and late registration available for the first hour.
Americas Cardroom is hosting “On Demand” Sit & Go qualifiers with buy-ins of $3.30 (one Million Dollar Sunday seat guaranteed), $11.00 (two Million Dollar Sunday seats guaranteed) and $44.00 (one Million Dollar Sunday seat guaranteed), plus “regular” Sit & Go games which have a buy-in of $185.00 and guaranteed two seats (6-Max) or three seats (Full Ring) to the winners.
The site is also offering a Sit & Go route into the Million Dollar Sunday through its “Million or Bust” promotion. “Million or Bust” is a version of the Americas Cardroom´s popular “Jackpot Poker”, which is a three-player hyper-turbo game. In the “Million or Bust” promotion, players can randomly win seats in the million dollar tournament (instead of cash prizes) by entering games with a buy-in of $1.00 or $12.00. Naturally, you have a better chance of winning a seat in the $12.00 games, but who knows?
