The Sunday Recap
We have a special edition of the Sunday Recap as yesterday we awarded 50 seats ($12,500 value each) to the WSOP in Las Vegas. It was all part of our $625,000 total package guarantee.
The qualifier yesterday had 1,114 entrants who paid the $540 buy-in, resulting in a prize pool of $557,000. That meant we ponied up the $68,000 overlay, providing a tremendous value for our players.
Be on the lookout for more huge events at Americas Cardroom like the $6.7 Million OSS Cub3d that starts August 13th.
Now here’s some others who scored big on Sunday, July 2nd.
The Sunday Special
Yesterday’s Sunday Special remained at a temporarily-lowered $125,000 guarantee. Interest remained high with 757 entrants paying the $215 buy-in, putting the final prize pool at $151,400.
