SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- It's not just the iPad mini that's stealing headlines for packing a huge amount of excitement into such a small package. Americas Cardroom announces the Mini Online Super Series. The fiv-day event runs from November 15th through 19th and features more than $67,000 in prize money, $25 bounties on online poker pros, four big leaderboard competitions, and a special $1k guaranteed event for the four top performers. But perhaps the biggest attraction is the fact that online poker players can buy a seat in any of the tournaments for between $0.10 and $2.
"It might be called mini, but the excitement players are about to experience in mid-November promises to be huge," stated Michael Harris, Americas Cardroom spokesperson. "After returning from the Punta Cana Poker Classic, our recreational players have been asking for something else to get excited about. So while we plan for an unbelievable 2013 that's going to blow the last few years out of the water, we're bringing back a smaller but just as intense version of our popular ACROSS series."
The Mini Online Super Series features over $67,000 in guaranteed prize money, spread out through three tournaments a day from November 15th through 19th. Buy-ins for the tournaments range from $0.10 to $2.
The first daily event, a $1k Guarantee, costs just $0.10+$0.01 to get into. It runs daily at 12:00pm ET and features a first-place price of $300. The second event follows three hours later at 3:00pm ET. It features a buy-in of just $0.25+0.02 and a guaranteed prize pool of $2,500, with $750 for first place. The final daily tournament kicks off at 6:00pm ET. The $10k Guaranteed tournament, featuring a $3,000 first-place prize, costs just $2+0.20 to get into. All tournament seats can be obtained using Combat Points.
In addition to the generous payout schedule, each tournament features bounties on the heads of two of Americas Cardroom's biggest online poker grinders — MOSS_Donkey and MamaCoolJ. A player who knocks either of the two out of the tourney will win $25.
While the tournaments are attractive on their own, it's the sum of its parts that makes the Mini Online Super Series really impressive. The series includes leaderboards for each tournament plus a fourth leaderboard that ranks players across all tournaments. In addition to winning money for ranking on each leaderboard, the first-place finisher on each leaderboard will win an entry in a special four-seat tournament on November 24th where $1k is on the line.
