The World Series of Poker is set to start at the end of May, and the poker world is waiting in anticipation.
With nearly a hundred poker events spread out until the beginning of July, going to this year’s WSOP will be a poker lover’s dream. For those who enjoy playing, it may be a too much, but earning the prize at the end can be worth it.
Those players who want to get in the action at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas may want to take up the newest offer by Americas Cardroom. From May 15 to June 24, the online poker site will be holding special Beast and Sit & Crush tournaments every Sunday. The winners of these tournaments will have a choice: they can either get a pass to a World Series of Poker main event or get two passes to the Punta Cana Poker Classic.
The packages in store are generous. When a player wins a tournament, they can either get the Americas Cardroom WSOP package or two Punta Cana Poker Classic packages. Both of them will end up being worth the same: $12,500. An enterprising can actually win multiple packages and sell them off to get more cash for their primary choice.
For those who want to get the World Series of Poker package, they will be receiving a straight-up cash prize intended for use at the WSOP. They will get a $10,000 buy-in at the main event of their choice and $2,500 for traveling expenses.
All of the main events are in the Texas Hold ‘Em format and there will be a lot of players. Estimates put at the main event handling over a thousand players. This will be a high-stress poker event, but is armed with a big payoff.
The Punta Cana Poker Classic package, on the other hands, is a bit more complicated. Slated for October and set in the Dominican Republic, this is supposed to be the ideal poker vacation.
Those who choose this package will get six nights of double occupancy at the five-star Melia Caribe Tropical resort. Players will be treated to premium 24-hour service along with food and beverages. There will also be a $1,500+150 buy-in to the Main Event, along with $1,350 in cash and six $50 Jackpot Sit & Go tickets. Players also have access to free golf at the casino resort.
Before players start considering what they will do with their prizes, they will have to first win, though, and it helps to master skills with the help of bonuses. Every Sunday, two tournaments will be held. One will use the Beast format and the other will be using the Sit & Crush format.
The Beast format is won by the player who gets the most Beast points. Beast points are earned by betting—for every two cents, a player gets one point. This means that players need to have bet the most for the entirety of the tourney to win. Winning is secondary, but the more a player wins, the more they can bet. The Sit & Crush format is similar. Players will get points as they buy into tables. The person with the most points wins the package.
Players interested in either going for the championship or just relaxing are encouraged to drop by Americas Cardroom every Sunday to try their hand at winning a package. Similarly, they can try their skills and luck with the World Series of Jackpots also on board this online poker room.
