America’s Cardroom have really started to take the lead when it comes to online poker in tournament format. This is one of the leading offshore sites, and offers legal games to the majority of states from their Caribbean base.
From August 14th 2016, a huge tournament event kicks off in the form of an extended ‘Online Super Series’. This includes a single tournament with a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool – plus many other must-see events.
Before I get into the details of these upcoming events, a quick word about America’s Cardroom for those who might not be familiar.
This brand has been going a long time, it took the reigns (and players) from Doyle’s Room – when that site closed after the legal situation within the US became uncertain. ACR (as they are commonly abbreviated) are now part of the Winning Poker Network. This moves between the 2nd and 3rd largest site for US players – depending on how they do relative to rivals the Chico Network (Bovada are the biggest, though no longer actively solicit poker players).
ACR has been steadily carving out a name as the go-to destination for poker tournaments – though they also run cash games and sit n goes. This is the only site to host games with a $1,000,000 guaranteed prize pool since Black Friday, and their schedule continues to expand.
Reasons to check them out include easy payment options (credit cards or BitCoin the best) for US players, plus some really solid promotions. There are headed up by 2 progressive leaderboards, known as ‘The Beast’ and ‘Sit N Crush’. You’ll find plenty of one-off specials, alongside their 200% welcome bonus. To top it off, the games are soft (noticeably softer than those at some of the bigger international sites).

Online Super Series Cubed
Back to the current event – the ‘OSS 3’ (or Online Super Series Cubed).
This is 3 events one after the other, which takes us from August 14th through to the end of September. Satellite qualifiers for seats in the big prize tournaments are already running (and are always very soft).
Things kick off with the mini-OSS, which is a tournament event aimed at smaller bankroll players. The prizes are still big, though here the buy-ins are closer to $20 and $30 than $300. This is just the opener, as the next event is the regular OSS. The highlight here is another $1 million guaranteed tournament. Most of the field will win satellite qualifiers to get a place in this event – and you will have every opportunity to join them.
The finale is the Bigger OSS – this ends with an online poker tournament with a buy-in of $2,100 and prize pool guaranteed at $500,000. Again, there will be a lot of satellite qualifiers running.
Support This Event!
One final word, holding big tournaments requires support – the more people who take a shot in these games, the bigger and better tournaments you’ll be able to enjoy in the future.
