With Thanksgiving just around the corner, Americas Cardroom is giving players some special tournaments to be thankful for. A side dish of extra cash is on the menu during the “Thanksgiving Bountyful Weekend,” running from November 24th through November 27th.
Three special PKO (Progressive Knockout) tournaments are featured across the festive weekend. With prize pools of $500,000, $250,000, and $100,000, buy-ins range from $215, $55, and $16.50 respectively. In traditional PKO tournaments, when a player is eliminated, the player who knocked them out receives part of the bounty and the other part goes into their own personal progressive bounty amount. However, ACR professionals will have a special Thanksgiving target on their backs.
If you manage to knock out one of the ACR Team pros, you get their full bounty amount, and also get the full amount added to your personal bounty. Huge bounties will potentially be up for grabs, especially late in the events. One ACR pro with an extra-lucrative target on his back is Chris Moneymaker.
“ACR greatly appreciates all its players who help make ACR the brilliant play to play that poker is,” said Moneymaker. “All ACR players have the chance to secure the extra-lucrative bounties on offer this Thanksgiving. It’s going to be a fun one!”
If you want to have a shot at knocking out Moneymaker, and a slew of other ACR Team pros, and collecting the bonus bounty amounts that go with it, flights for each PKO tournament start on November 24th. Knock out a pro or two on this special weekend, and you’ll have even more to be thankful for.
