Americas Cardroom Awards 15 WSOP Prize Packages Worth $194K

Adding to the Sunday tournament action at Americas Cardroom was the finale of WSOP Takedown Week that saw 15 players each earn a $12,500 prize package to the 2019 WSOP Main Event next month.

The winners topped a field of 108 and received their winnings in cash, allowing them to make the decision whether to head to Las Vegas for a shot at a huge payday and poker glory or to keep the money and stay home. Odds are that most will make the trip in hopes of parlaying their online success into a massive score on the live felt at the Rio.

The $12,500 covers the $10K buy-in and kicks in $2,500 more for travel and hotel expenses.

Incidentally, a 16th player won $6,900, which was certainly enough to buy into the Sunday Majors at ACR, with plenty of cash left over. There were overlays in two of the three biggest Sunday MTTs.

The $200,000 GTD tallied 196 entrants at a buy-in of $1,000 + 50, falling $4,000 short of the guarantee. Americas Cardroom made good on the prize money, resulting in a top prize of $45,000.

Laying claim to that cash and the title was "one2and3of0". Runner-up honors went to "iwinatmygame1", as did $27,000 in prize money.

The $109 buy-in of the $150,000 GTD Warm Up attracted 1,573 entrants who combined to boost the prize pool to $157,300. Payouts went to the top 180 players with "TerryRash" overcoming the efforts of "Bandito45" to nab the biggest prize of $26,374.

The $125,000 GTD Sunday Special was value-packed after 549 entrants bought in for $215 and created a $15,200 overlay. Summertime may be part of the reason why player participation was waning this week as players tend to enjoy outdoor activities when the weather heats up.

ACR regular "ChristinePoker" was among the final tablists, landing 3rd for $12,812. Not falling for any tricks was "Try2Trick", who topped the field and claimed $23,750 along with the title.
