Americas Cardroom Invites Poker Players to 'Sit & Crush' the Tables

(Press Release) San Jose, Costa Rica – November 29, 2013 – Up until today, bragging rights for tournament players was all based on how they finished. But that all changes with Americas Cardroom’s Sit & Crush, a new tournament points race that rewards players with cash and tournament prizes just for playing Sit & Go and On Demand tournaments. The new points race is similar to The Beast, Americas Cardroom’s popular points race for cash game fans. “For months now, our cash game players have been raking in the cash through The Beast, our twice-monthly points race that rewards players for enjoying the tables,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “We’re excited to bring the same incentives to our players who live for crushing tournaments and hand over 6-figure prize pools every month to our most dedicated Sit & Go and On Demand tourney players.” The new points race is similar to The Beast, Americas Cardroom’s leaderboard competition for cash game players that pays out six-figure prize pools every month. With The Beast, anyone who sits down at a cash table marked Jackpot automatically becomes part of The Beast competition by earning points through participation in a raked hand. Since launching The Beast, the online poker site has paid out over $2.3 million in cash and tournament prize pools. Sit & Crush, designed exclusively for Sit & Go and On Demand tournament players, uses the tournament fee to feed the jackpot. For example, in a $10+1 Sit & Go or On-Demand tournament, $0.75 of the $1 fee will go to the house and $0.25 will go to the jackpot. Players earn points by participating, and at the end of each month Americas Cardroom will award players who rank on the leaderboard with cash and tournament seats. While The Beast is a twice-monthly points race, Sit & Crush is a monthly points race to start. Sit & Crush will go live on December 1st at the US-friendly online poker site.
