(prHWY.com) November 9, 2011 - Berlin, Germany -- As the Americas Cardroom announced news of acquiring DoylesRoom, it is also forming a new online series. Americas Cardroom unleashes ACROSS Online Super Series, which will take place in November.
An America's Card Room rep reports that "this is going to be like PokerStars World Series of Online Poker." The announcement was made as the online gambling site broke the news about the DoylesRoom Acquisition.
According to the rep, ACROSS (America's Card Room Online Super Series) is going to be smaller compared to the PokerStars' large operation. This 6-day event will feature 19 Omaha and Hold'em games with a guaranteed cash prize of $150,000. There will be no less than 3 major games per day, and the tournament will end with a $50,000 Main Event.
America's Cardroom is also planning various promos throughout the series, which include a contest that will hail top 10 card players that will cash in during the series; a freeroll seat worth $1,000 for each player that will cash in at least twice; plus Frequent Player Points award that will be given to each player that will finish a tournament "on the bubble". Aside from that, Americas Cardroom will also introduce in November the new $65,000 Points Race and will give a whopping $7,500 cash to the top placer.
Two Brand New Tournament Types
Just recently, Americas Cardroom announced the launch of two new types of poker tournaments: one is the time-based online tournament, while the other is the hand-based tournament. These two new types of poker tournaments give players, who usually have tight schedules, the chance to play and win more quickly.
These new tournaments are great for players who are not open to the idea of sitting around for hours to play on-hand, or those who do not have all the hours of the day to play a full online tournament.
Regular Hold'em tournaments end only when there is only one player left, while Americas Cardroom's time-based poker tournaments conclude once the designated time has ended, despite the number of remaining players. Once the time ends, the remaining players will get paid depending on their ranks. As usual, their ranks will be determined by the number of chips they own.
Hand--based poker tournaments are a bit similar to the time-based tournaments. But, this type of tournament ends when the players reached a fixed number of hands. Time-based poker games are initially launched at Americas Cardroom with a time frame of 15-minute and 30-minute, respectively; while hand-based tournaments end at 60 hands.
Much of the news around Americas Cardroom now comes in three. First was the DoylesRoom acquisition. Then, the launching of America's Card Room Online Super Series and the two new tournament types; which are all set to happen this November.
