Tags: Americas Cardroom, OSS Cub3d, PokerStars
Posted on Tuesday, May 02, 2017 by "T".
US-facing poker site Americas Cardroom hosted its biggest-ever Million Dollar Sunday tournament (part of the OSS Cub3d) last weekend.

This just shows that the poker community is still going strong. Both of these tournaments were very well supported and it is nice to see that 2 big tournaments on the same night were both well contested

We see it not so often that a smaller network or poker room can beat the leader Poker Stars. But this winning payout are really great and it was nice to see, that other rooms can also offer great tournaments and promos.

G'day mate

I remember the old days when it was "Party P" that was the largest poker site, they had the best promos and tournaments for a long time.
My how the mighty have fallen.
Let us hope things will continue to improve for the poker community.
be cool

Bragging about nothing as usual. PS - not that I care nor that I even like that place - having these on every Sunday every week since God knows how many years. Comparing the two is like talking down on Ferrari when you are some new team's owner in Formula One.

yeah like some dudes above me told this is really cheap talk from representatives of america's cardroom, i personally wouldn't adopt such a plot like "look we're bigger than pokerstars" just because of a single bigger tourney, when stars have done it on a weekly basis for many years and besides i'm sure they have a biggest online tourney even compared prize money to prize money... not saying i like stars of anything like that, i don't even play there for over a year, but lets be real...

G'day mates

Pochui I agree with you completely mate.
I too have played very little poker over the last 6 months.
Recently however when I do play it at PartyP and NOT on stars.
hope you are all having a great day

well americas card room has great potential, has a lot of flaws, but it has lowest rake from all sites... only if they have faster withdrows, and to fix their software to be little better, and it would be realy awesome place to play!!!

I would never expect something like this to happen with this site.
And of course it is good news for all, cause the competition in rooms is still out there,
making it better for all the players. Monopoly never helped anyone.

Four people received about 150,000 dollars ... this is certainly a great achievement for all four players .... it's nice to see that not only the top rooms give the opportunity to get big wins but relatively small rooms give a chance for a good win

G'day mates

This might seem like a stupid question but can non American's play on this poker site?
I have never even looked at it so i am not sure.
It is after all called "America's Cardroom" so I was wondering if it is truly only for USA players only.

hope all is well
be cool

yeah, I can play at this site, and seen above StheP plays also. not every country can play but it is open to players outside of the USA. It might have a larger % of players from the USA than other sites, i dont know, or dont know why its called Americas cardroom since its probably licensed to Gibraltar

G'day Robbo1990

Thank you for the information mate.
Would you recommend it as a site I should bother looking at?

Do you think the play is hard, tight, or soft over all.

hope you are doing well

this was great payout for this players,but buy is also high,more then 500 dollars,so for somebody is too big buy in,for somebody not!if they want to be big poker site,they need to have every week this kind of tournaments!

well like I said above, it has lowest rake from all poker sites, and has softer players than on pokerstars and partypoker, but software could be better, and payouts are slow... if that doesnt bother you, than you should definetly play there Blink

G'day mate

Thank you for the information.
I do not mind payout that are a bit slow as long as they do get paid out.
A three week or longer wait time is however to long in my opinion, but anything under two weeks is fine with me overall.
hope you are doing well.
