Guarantees Smashed in Americas Cardroom Sunday Majors

The Americas Cardroom $5 million guaranteed Venom that got underway yesterday with Day 1A was the likely reason that the regularly scheduled Sunday majors at the US-facing poker site saw increased action.

By: Charles Rettmuller

After a couple weeks of overlays, the $200K GTD with a $1,000 + $50 buy-in surpassed the guarantee handily when 227 entrants took part to combine for a $227,000 prize pool. A total of 45 players finished in the money.

Topping the field for a $48,805 payday was "SmashDonks888!". Among the players earning a payday was "Dogerson" ($4,540), who landed 9th while simultaneously bagging the third highest chip total in Day 1A of the Venom.

Here's the top three of the $200K GTD:

1 SmashDonks888! $48,805
2 one_hundred_eyes $30,077
3 JackGarbarino $21,565

$150,000 GTD

The value-packed $150,000 GTD Warm Up 8-Max was extremely popular Sunday thanks to its very affordable $109 buy-in. With unlimited re-entry, 2,243 entrants took a shot at an ACR title, creating prize money totaling $224,300.

Standing tall with all the chips at the conclusion was "Jesusisback", who resurrected his bankroll to the tune of $36,605. Finishing runner-up was "Mindstr8" for $27,207.

The $200K GTD winner, "SmashDonks888!", came in 9th place for $2,243. The best three are listed below:

1 Jesusisback $36,605
2 Mindstr8 $27,207
3 le_brighte $20,299

$125,000 GTD

A $200 + $15 buy-in in the $125,000 GTD Sunday Special attracted 712 entrants. Claiming the title and first place prize money of $26,771 was "gallinalatina".

That was the lion's share of the $142,400 prize pool that was doled out to the top 81 slots. The three biggest winners can be found below:

1 gallinalatina $26,711
2 forrestranfar $19,636
3 dstavila $14,382

$50,000 GTDs

The $50K GTD High Roller with a $500 + $30 entry fee drew 141 entrants, making for a $70,500 prize pool. "AMFJAXX" binked the tournament for $16,215, while "ThrowSomePop" took runner-up honors for $9,870.

Another $50K GTD, this one with a $200 + $15 buy-in, was equally impressive in terms of shattering the guarantee. The prize money played for was $68,800 after 344 entrants took part, with "matacobra" winning the title and $14,104.

Next Sunday, July 21, marks the kick off of the OSS Cub3D that guarantees more than $13 million spread out over 160 events thru August 18, including two $1 million GTD tournaments. Buy-ins for all budgets and bankrolls are featured!
