"CouncilOfRicks" Binks Americas Cardroom $200K GTD for $46,000

Americas Cardroom players are tuning up for the $5 million GTD Venom that kicks off next Sunday and CouncilOfRicks has his A-game in fine form following a victory in the $200K GTD yesterday for $46,000.

By: Charles Rettmuller

The 171 entrants who bought in for $1,000 + $50 enjoyed an overlay of $29K. Payouts went to the top 27, with final table five-figure scores going to "DamianLillard" ($12,000) in 5th place and "BlueEyedArab" ($16,000) in 4th. Check out the top three below:

1 CouncilOfRicks $46,000
2 soappalled $28,000

$150,000 GTD

WPN regular "Shermanatorr" was also a winner yesterday, claiming the title in the $150,000 GTD Warm Up 8-Max for $27,570.50. To grab the lion's share of cash, Shermanatorr had to beat "1bullet" ($20,262.26) heads-up, as well as 1,646 total entrants.

At a $109 buy-in, those entrants surpassed the guarantee and made for a prize pool of $164,600. Landing in the money were the top 198 players. Here's the top three:

1 Shermanatorr $27,570.50
2 1bullet $20,262.26
3 Grindf0r3at $15,390.10

$125,000 GTD

A $200 + $15 buy-in in the $125,000 GTD Sunday Special drew 542 total entrants. That missed the mark of the guarantee by more than $15K.

The title and $23,750 in prize money went to "SperoMeliora". Paydays were claimed by the top 63 finishers, with a min-cash worth almost 3x the entry fee - provided that those min-cashers shot only one bullet in the unlimited re-entry.

The three top prizes and their claimants are listed below:

1 SperoMeliora $23,750
2 ST_GAUCHO $17,500
3 MrTilter $12,812

$50,000 High Rollers

A $53,500 prize pool was up for grabs in the $530 buy-in $50,000 GTD High Roller that attracted 107 entrants - the same number of entries as last week. Topping the field and collecting $13,375 was "thefishk4", while runner-up "p00cket00" took home $8,292.50.

Undaunted by a 2nd place finish in the $50K High Roller, "p00cket00" went one better in the $215 buy-in $50,000 GTD, snagging the win and $10,750. That's some solid play in the Sunday Bigs at ACR!

$5M GTD Venom Ticket Winners

Also displaying solid poker skills were 38 players who each won a seat to the $5 million GTD Venom in a Step 6/6 event yesterday. The $630.01 buy-in guaranteed 35 Venom tickets.

Of course, a number of the winners didn't pay the full buy-in, but instead worked their way thru the Step tournaments at Americas Cardroom. Step 1 is free to enter!
