Americas Card Room Lights Up Online Poker Landscape with “High Five” Series

Players on the Americas Card Room (ACR) platform are being treated to five days of extended tournament schedules as the successful “High Five” series makes its return.

The action kicked off on Wednesday, October 19 and runs through Sunday, October 23 – culminating in a $420+$35 buy-in, $420,000 guaranteed Main Event at 4:00 p.m. eastern time (ET).

The full High Five schedule includes 25 individual events, with price points ranging from $3.30 to $530, and combined guaranteed prize pools totaling $977,500.

The second-highest guarantee on offer is $100,000 in the $109 buy-in standard No-Limit Texas Hold’em (NLHE) tournament, which starts at 2:00 p.m. ET ahead of the Main Event.

Players will compete for their share of a $60,000 guaranteed prize pool in a $320 NLHE tournament, scheduled for Thursday, October 20 at 7:00 p.m ET. The $530 buy-in NLHE tournament – Wednesday, October 19 at 8:15 p.m. ET – includes a $50,000 guarantee. In all, the guarantees available for High Five entrants range from $2,000 to the aforementioned $420,000 Main Event prize pool.

Fans of short-handed “six-max” action and mixed games will enjoy the High Five slate on Saturday, October 22. A $66 buy-in six-max No Limit Omaha High Low Split (NLO8) knockout tournament, with a $10 bounty and a $12,000 guaranteed prize pool, begins at 5:00 p.m. ET. Two hours later, a $160 buy-in six-max NLHE event kicks off, featuring a $40 bounty and a $30,000 guaranteed prize pool.

As part of ACR’s commitment to the THC-fueled theme of the series, the site’s regular schedule of five-minute breaks at :55 of every hour has been supplemented with a courtesy break of 10 minutes at 4:20 p.m. ET every day.

The eventual winner of the High Five Main Event will collect a specially designed silver bracelet – engraved with “I Smoked the High Five” to commemorate the achievement – in addition to a score likely to be in the six figures.

The ACR platform is available to players throughout the United States, and as the flagship brand of the Winning Poker Network, it’s the second-leading U.S.-friendly site. The full High Five schedule can be found below:
