Liberty Quarter Million – Americas Cardroom’s Biggest Tournament

April 13, 2012

Poker players in the US would be well aware of the poker site called Americas Cardroom. This weekend, on April 15, 2012, the poker room is going to hold its biggest ever tournament called the Liberty Quarter Million, which offers guaranteed prizes of $250,000 to the winners. Americas Cardroom is a part of the Yatahay network and has been in the industry since 2001. Also, it is one of the few poker sites that accept players from the US. If you want to win a part of the quarter million, you should probably get registered with the site as soon as you can.

Liberty Weekends

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. On all Saturdays, you can participate in the $10k guaranteed tourneys at 9:00 pm ET. The event has a buy-in of $55, along with the rebuy and add-on features.

On Sundays, the poker room will be hosting the $50 guaranteed tournaments at 7:00 pm ET. The buy-in for these events will be $215. Alongside these two, the $250k guaranteed tournament will also be held on Sunday, April 15, 2012. This event also has a buy-in of $215 and will begin at 7:00 pm ET.

Satellites for the events

Certainly, you would want to reduce the amount you spend on poker tournament buy-ins. That is exactly why the poker site hosts satellite qualifiers for its Liberty weekend tournaments. 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. The buy in for the satellites is just $24 and offer 2 guaranteed seats for the event on April 15.

Besides the direct qualifier, Americas Cardroom also hosted weekend satellites that offered seats to the 250 Seater satellite on April 13, 2012. The top 250 players of this satellite entered the main event on Sunday. 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.
