ACR Sunday Recap Includes Wins for "VasOrtFlam" and "LekkerLikkie7"

The turnout at Americas Cardroom on Sunday for the biggest guaranteed MTTs was a bit less than previous weeks, likely due to the fact that Mothers Day celebrations and gatherings kept some loyal players from logging on. However, the three largest tournaments still surpassed their guarantees, just not by as much as has been the norm at the US-facing poker site.

The $200,000 GTD that features a $1,000 + $50 buy-in and a 150K starting chip stack saw 236 entrants take to the virtual felt after the 4-hour late reg period concluded. A prize pool of $236,000 meant that the winner would walk away with $53,100.

A heads-up battle with "SanityWaterline" proved to be successful for "VasOrtFlam", who captured the title and the largest prize. The runner-up's prize money totaled $31,860.

The $150K GTD Warm Up 8-Max, always popular due to the low buy-in of $109, reached a prize pool of $194,100 after 1,941 entrants joined in. Unlimited re-entry permitted players to shoot several bullets while aiming for a big score.

One of those bullets paid off for "CPUrul0r" to the tune of $31,832.40 and an ACR title. Four players reached five-figure paydays, including "!!!wooow!!!", who finished 4th for $12,907.65.

While yesterday was a special Sunday thanks to Mother's Day, there was also a Sunday Special tournament on the schedule that guaranteed $125,000 in prize money. The prize pool was bumped up to $154,600 when 773 entrants bought in for $200 + $15.

Making mama proud was "LekkerLikkie7", who topped the field to claim $28,987.50. Among that field and the top three finishers was a likely Forrest Gump fan with the screen name "forrestranfar", who ran far and deep in the tournament to collect $15,460.
