Sit & Crush Race Follows The Footsteps

(Press Release) San Jose, Costa Rica – January 29, 2014 – It's not just The Beast's roar that's making big noise each week at Americas Cardroom. Just days after announcing that The Beast is moving to a weekly format beginning February 1st, the leading online poker site today announced that its Sit & Crush tournament points race is also moving to a weekly format. "More players, rewarded more often – in cash games and in tournaments," said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. "That's been our goal for a long time and today we're making the move to make our two big point races the most lucrative in all of online poker." Like the new weekly Beast competition, Sit & Crush gives poker players a new chance to race to the top of a leaderboard for cash prizes and tourney seats each week, just by playing in qualifying Sit&Go tournaments. Each weekly race runs from Saturday at 00:00 until the following Friday at 23:59. Poker players who win a cash prize will see the money paid into their account by end-of-day every Monday. Any tournament seat wins are paid out on the Sunday following the cash prize payout. The Beast is Americas Cardroom's progressive points race that's funded entirely through the poker site's jackpot tables, using players' shared jackpot contribution money. At the end of each 7-day period, the prize pool in The Beast is distributed to players who rank on The Beast leaderboard. Sit & Crush is modeled after The Beast, however it's built exclusively for Sit & Go players. While the weekly Sit & Crush competition runs on the same schedule as The Beast, the leaderboard competitions are completely independent of one another. The new weekly format means that players will now have the opportunity to participate in a brand new large-scale Beast and Sit & Crush tournaments every week, winning their way to land-based events like the LSOP and the Punta Cana Poker Classic.
