Big Prize Pools in Sunday MTTs at US-Friendly Americas Cardroom

The deadline to file tax returns on April 15 did not keep players away from the big money tournament tables at Americas Cardroom on Sunday, April 14.

My Sunday was spent crunching numbers and familiarizing myself with the boring new tax laws, unlike the non-procrastinating ACR loyalists who once again showed up in droves to battle for huge prize money. The US-facing poker room saw heavy participation by players in the $125K GTD Sunday Special, $150K GTD Warm Up 8-Max, and the $200K GTD.

$200K GTD

Entrants totaling 282 each invested $1,050 in Sunday's biggest guaranteed tournament at ACR, boosting the prize pool to $282,000. The title and $60,630 went to "jammjanne", who is no stranger to winning big at ACR events.

Back in the summer of 2016, jammjanne achieved a rare feat, collecting all of the chips in the Americas Cardroom '$1k Cage' event, becoming the first player to ever do that in the cash game with a tournament component - a 5-hour time limit. The entire field of 19 players busted, while jammjane scooped $17,950 before the five hours were up.

On Sunday, jammjane dominated the entire $200K tournament field, including runner-up "CCme" ($37,365). The winner of this event two weeks ago, Alex "OutFoxenYou" Foxen ($58,050), had the dubious distinction of being the bubble boy yesterday. Here's the top three finishers:

1 jammjane $60,630
2 CCme $37,365
3 Logan 1980 $26,790

$150K GTD

A $100 + $9 buy-in attracted 2,217 entrants in the $150K GTD Warm Up 8-Max. That escalated the prize pool to $221,700 and it was distributed to players who finished within the top 252 places.

"CharliePuth" ($10,530.75) and "MomLookNoHands" ($14,565.69) were among the five-figure winners, landing in 5th and 4th places, respectively. Using his hands to make the right bets and topple the field was "Franco64", who earned $36,181,44 upon clinching the victory.

1 Franco64 $36,181,44
2 ImAngry $26,892.21
3 SlotStoners $20,063.85

$125K GTD

The Sunday Special featuring a $215 buy-in and three hours of late reg was joined by 817 entrants who went to war with a starting stack of 10,000 chips. Making the most of that stack was "PERRYNELL", who emerged as the champion to claim $29,983.90 in prize money.

Pieces of the $163,400 prize pool were also had by 98 other players, with "Delicious U.S." ($21,405.40) grabbing the next-biggest piece. Bulgarian "Monnson" ($16,176.60) landed in 3rd.

1 PERRYNELL $29,983.90
2 Delicious U.S. $21,405.40
3 Monnson $16,176.60
