The Liberty Quarter Million is a part of Americas Cardroom’s Liberty Weekends, where the poker site would be giving away a total of $500,000 over 5 weekends. The promo started on March 31, 2012 and will continue throughout the month of April. During all weekends this month, Americas Cardroom will be hosting guaranteed tournaments for its members.

Direct satellites for the $250k guaranteed tournament take place every day at 4:55 pm, 6:55 pm, 8:55 pm, 10:55 pm and 12:55 am.

You may have missed the 250 Seater satellite but you can still participate in the $250k tournament and get a piece of that quarter million pie. However, you will have to shell out a little more than what you would have for the satellites.


To be a part of the Liberty weekends on Americas Cardroom, you need to register with the site first. Once you register, you can participate in several other tourneys that the card room hosts. Among them are the Freezeout tournaments that take place every Wednesday and the April $60,000 Points Race. Along with the regular cash games you play, participating in the Liberty Weekends will also fetch you the required points for the Points Race. Participate in the $250k event this Sunday, and Americas Cardroom will add 7,500 points to your account.
