Guarantees Crushed at Americas Cardroom Top Sunday Events

Tournament poker at Americas Cardroom on Sunday, April 7 was once again the place to be for US players aiming for a big score.

By: Charles Rettmuller

Those big scores were made in the popular site's three largest MTTs scheduled for the day, the $200K GTD, the $150K GTD Warm Up 8-Max, and the Sunday Special featuring $125K GTD. Each tournament surpassed its stated guarantee by at least $40,000, putting over $630,000 in prize money up for grabs in the trio of events combined.

Here's a brief rundown on each event:

$200K GTD

A $1,050 buy-in attracted 260 entrants who were vying for $260,000 in total prize money. The payout field was 45 players with ACR regulars such as "MARCUSBAGWELL", "TayTayBae" and "ali23imsirovic" landing in the dreaded slots between 46-50 and missing the cut.

Not missing a payday was the event champion, "lol voidaments", whose bankroll swelled by $55,900. Six players registered scores of at least five figures. Here's the top three:

1 lol voidaments $55,900
2 FLOATMEPLS $34,450
3 Xtremist $24,700

$150K GTD

Prize money totaling $211,500 was on the virtual table in the $150K GTD Warm Up 8-Max thanks to 2,115 entrants who each invested $100 + $9 on the first Sunday in April. After the late reg period closed, $34,516.80 was reserved for the winner and "SirBoddington" claimed it.

In order to do so, SirBoddington had to get by the likes of "afacking2" ($10,046.25) and "Justicepeanut" ($13,895.55), who hit the rail in 5th and 4th place, respectively. Slotted ahead of those two players in 3rd and 2nd place were "dl3hp33ui" ($19,140.75) and "CrushTheBeasT" ($25,654.95).

Yesterday's $215 buy-in Sunday Special at ACR featured 825 entrants all hoping to play their cards right to win some cash. They were aiming for the $165,000 prize pool that was divvied up among the top 99 finishers.

A heads-up duel between "ShipitWoollaa" and "ForlorarDu3" saw the latter claim the title and $30,277.50 in prize money. The runner-up payout was a respectable $21,615.
