Americas Cardroom Treats Sit and Go Players by Adding $10,000 to Sit & Crush Leaderboard in March

(Press Release) San Jose, Costa Rica – February 27, 2014 – Its known industry-wide as Sit & Crush, but players might want to sit down for this. Just weeks after moving Sit & Crush to a weekly format, ACR has announced that they're adding an additional $2,500 to each weekly leaderboard competition during the month of March. The top finisher set to take home an extra $1,000. "We want to give Sit and Go players the chance to compete for even more money next month," said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. "So rather than wait for the prize pool to feed itself, we thought we'd get things started by throwing extra money on the table every single week in March." Sit & Crush is a progressive points race that's funded entirely through the poker site's jackpot tables, using players' shared jackpot contribution money. The leaderboard competition 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 and Go tournaments. At the end of each 7-day period, the Sit & Crush prize pool is distributed to players who rank on the weekly leaderboard. Each week during the month of March, Americas Cardroom will top up the top 5 players with extra cash. First place receives an extra $1,000, 2nd place earns $600, 3rd place takes home $400, 4th place walks away with $300, and 5th place pockets another $200. The money is paid on top of the weekly leaderboard payout schedule, which varies based on how much money is contributed to the leaderboard. With a new leaderboard each week, Sit and Go players have the opportunity to participate in a brand new large-scale Beast and Sit & Crush tournaments every seven days. For the next few weeks players will be winning their way into the OSS III Highroller events.
