$6 Million Venom to headline the $12 Million OSS at Americas Cardroom
Americas Cardroom (ACR) has accomplished a lot this year. But, in staying true to their aggressive nature, the US-facing poker site is ending the year with a huge bang. The Online Super Series (OSS) returns from November 20th through December 15th, offering 26 days of poker action that will include $12 Million in guarantees across 150 tournaments.
Why Americas Cardroom is our favourite USA-facing poker room.
One of the best parts of the OSS is that it appeals to all players, from the beginner to the professional. There are a variety of games, including NLH, PLO, and PLO8, and structures include regular, turbo and hyper-turbo.
The OSS typically features a $1-million guaranteed tourney, but this time there are two of them. One has a $540 buy-in and begins on Sunday, December 8th at 3pm ET. The second has a $215 buy-in and it will have 13 Day 1 options starting November 20th. The players who advance will battle it out on Sunday, December 15th at 3pm ET.
The Featured Event of the OSS is the $6 Million Venom. It begins on Wednesday, November 27th and has a $2,650 buy-in. That may be a little steep for some players, but you can qualify for far less via ACR's Step Tournaments, Skip Tournaments, Regular Satellites, Mega Satellites and Cyclones.
If you haven't heard of Cyclones, they're essentially fast-paced Blitz Poker satellites that begin on November 14th. You can enter at any of the seven steps (the first one costs just $0.25) and, if you amass 5,000 chips, you advance to the next step. Make your way through Step 7 and you get a $2,650 Venom seat.
