The Beast will pay double the players starting February 29th
There are some big changes coming to Americas Cardroom this summer. No, we are not talking about the next Venom tournament, although that is coming in February and will be massive as usual.
We’re talking about the changes to The Beast, our weekly progressive points race for cash game players. Starting February 29th, double the amount of players (about 400 to 800) will be paid, although individual prize values will be halved.
You may be asking yourself why we made this change. It quite simply for a few good reasons.
1) We wanted more of our players to have the ability to get paid the cash and tournament tickets that come from The Beast
2) This change makes it far easier for recreational players to place on the Beast weekly leaderboard, as opposed to just professional grinders.
30) The change also gives greater flexibility for players to choose between cash games and Blitz Poker. The previous format tended to give players an incentive to just play Blitz Poker.
The Beast has paid out over $20 Million lifetime and it costs nothing for players to participate! And with the new changes coming in February, it promises to continue to be a player-favorite for the next several years.
