ACRs High Five Series Just Doubled the Hit with $10million in Guarantees

It is that time of year again on Americas CardRoom, the 420-inspired High Five tournament series returning for what will be double the hit - $10million in guaranteed prizepools and the chance to smoke the opposition!

By: Andrew Burnett

ACR have decided to double the money on offer – up from an already impressive $5million – and with five daily tournaments running for 20 days that’s 100 chances to significantly boost your bankroll.

Running from April 7th to 26th, the highlights of the series are undoubtedly the Sunday Main Events, with the prizemoney also doubled from ACR’s usual 420-themed guarantees.

Sunday Main Events

Now you’re looking at $840,000 guaranteed for each of them, and the dates and times for your calendar are as below:

  • Sunday, April 12th - High Five #28 $420 + $30 4:00 PM
  • Sunday, April 19th - High Five #63 $420 + $30 4:00 PM
  • Sunday, April 26th - High Five #98 $420 + $30 4:00 PM

Satellites on ACR

Of course, there are the usual satellites available to allow you to qualify for a fraction of the Main Event buy-ins and you can find them running pretty much non-stop in the ACR lobby.

ACR’s new blitz poker-style CYCLONES are also an excellent route in to the bigger buy-in tournaments, so be sure to check them out over the next few weeks.

Plenty of variety

The series offers plenty of variation in the formats and games, with PLO and 7-Card Stud mixed in with the NLHE events, and Turbo, Hyper Turbo, SuperStack and PKO tournaments all on the 20-day schedule.

Buy-ins across the board

The same goes for the buy-ins to the High Five Series, ranging all the way from $1.65 up to the Super High Roller level at a whopping $5150.

This coming Saturday 11th April sees a $500k GTD Warm-Up 8-max for just $109 and Sunday afternoons see a sweet $16.50 offering a $150k guarantee to get you in the mood for the Main Events.


Naturally, it wouldn’t be the High Five Series without a nod to the 420 inspiration, which between adults means those who like a smoke to mellow out the afternoons.

OK, that’s enough to be getting on with – you can find all the schedules and detailed info here and good luck at the High Five tables!
