Sunday Guarantees Smashed as ACR Grinders Go To Work

Americas Cardroom had another busy day yesterday, the US-facing sites Sunday grind seeing several guarantees smashed along the way, and the streamers out in force and running deep.

Kicking off with the $125k GTD Sunday Special, some 796 entries had boosted the prizepool up to $159,200, with 90 paid places and close to $30,000 up top.

xMonsterxDONG may have been in boastful mood when he chose his online moniker, but he backed his claims up a bit with an excellent 6th place and $6,766.

That left a three-way battle for top honours, WestCliff21, Finister and RiverRiot72 looking at more than $65k on the line in total and some big payjumps.

Third spot went to WestCliff21, a $15,920 cash just reward for a very fine run and it was RiverRiot72 who took down the victory, a heads-up win worth $29,850 – Finister’s runner-up run still a very healthy $21,492.

The $200k GTD on ACR was another one to exceed the guarantee, 228 runners at $1050 apiece boosting the cash and meaning the top 5 would all take home five-figure paydays.

As we saw in the opening tweet, grootthedegen was sharing his deep run with a healthy TwitchTV stream full of fans and followers, and his eventual 4th place brought him a sweet $16,530 Sunday payday.

The big win went to DamianLillard, the ACR highstakes reg edging out TRUMPING_YOU to the trophy, a $49,020 cash, his adversary taking $30,210 for second.

There was PLO action on the schedule as well, the 4-card variant attracting 43 entries to the $1050 buy-in tournament.
Only five places would be paid, so the struggle was intense, JennaTools holding on for that precious 5th place and $4000. MacheezMO fell in 4th for $5000 and then grootthedegen popped up yet again on the winner’s podium.

This time it was 3rd place and a $7500 cash for the streamer, leaving DwideShrude and supportthekids to fight it out for the title.

Supportthekids had to settle for second, a very nice $13,500 and that meant DwideShrude walked off with the $20,000 first prize.

There’s plenty more ACR action on the way, so if you fancy joining the fastest-growing US-facing poker room, then check out this link and we’ll see you again next Monday for the weekend round-up.
