The Cage at Americas Cardroom - High Stakes Cash Game
« on: September 30, 2014, 05:49:23 AM »
Guard your chips and protect your stack because the blood is about to hit the felt.

Americas Cardroom are dropping you into The Cage for the most epic poker experience you’ve ever been a part of. This high-stakes cash game with a time-based tournament format is all-out war!

They’ll pre-warn you. The Cage isn’t for the faint of heart, nor is it for those who are afraid to sweat. It’s for poker players who are passionate about winning and willing to do damage at the tables in ways most players only dream of.

3 hours to dropkick your way to victory

The Cage is a multi-table time-based cash game with a $5,000+100 buy-in (satellites from as low as $1.50 are available). The tournament ends as soon as the clock hits 3 hours of play, regardless of how many players are left standing.

Your buy-in gets you 5,000 in chips and here’s the deal. Those chips have a real dollar value. At the end of the 3-hour tournament, they’ll convert your chip stack to real cash. So if you’ve got 50,000 in chips left, they’ll load your account with $50,000 in cash.

Battle against legends

When you step into The Cage, you won’t just go to battle against regular poker players. You’ll go fist-to-fist against some of the biggest poker heavyweights. The Cage is attracting the who’s who of online poker, so check back often to see who else is stepping into the ring.

The Cage premiere event was a huge success and Americas Cardroom are opening the doors again for an even bigger round on November 12th at 8:00pm EST.

This means more hours of play, more fighters and more unadulterated poker excitement!

The inaugural Cage had a total prize pool of $330,000 and first-place winner: bik6624235 emerging with just under $30,000. Players interviewed said they really enjoyed the time-based tournament format and quality of competition.

They’ll pre-warn you. The Cage isn’t for the faint of heart, nor is it for those who are afraid to sweat. It’s for poker players who are passionate about winning and willing to do damage at the tables in ways most players only dream of.

They know this new Cage event is going to be even BIGGER and BETTER. So they are issuing the challenge to all poker warriors to enter and join the fight!

4 hours to dropkick your way to victory on November 12th at 8:00pm EST

The Cage is a multi-table time-based cash game with a $5,000+100 buy-in (satellites from as low as $1.65 are available). The tournament ends as soon as the clock hits 4 hours of play, regardless of how many players are left standing.

Your buy-in gets you 5,000 in chips and here’s the deal. Those chips have a real dollar value. At the end of the 4-hour tournament, they’ll convert your chip stack to real cash. So if you’ve got 50,000 in chips left, they’ll load your account with $50,000 in cash.

They Turn Up the Heat by Increasing the Blinds Every Level

The Cage is split into three levels (1 hour and 20 minutes apiece), with each getting more intense. Here’s the breakdown of how the blinds increase throughout the event:
Level 1 with $10/$20 blinds and $2 antes
Level 2 with $25/$50 blinds and $5 antes
Level 3 with $50/$100 blinds and $10 antes

Its about time they did something like this for cash game players. This why i love online poker. You cant do this sort of stuff live. Online has brought in so many new ideas to the game that we never would have if it wasnt for the internet.
