(Press Release) San Jose, Costa Rica – February 23, 2015 – It took America almost 4 years to realize a $1 million guaranteed online poker tournament. But it'll only take another 7 weeks to see its second $1 million prize hit the felt. On the eve of the 4th anniversary of Black Friday, Americas Cardroom is hosting yet another $1 million guaranteed poker tournament. Million Dollar Sunday is set to get underway on Sunday, April 12th at 3pm ET. It's the last Sunday before the anniversary of Black Friday and the announcement comes the morning after Americas Cardroom held its first $1 million guaranteed tournament. "It took a bit of time, but America has emerged from the shadows of Black Friday brighter than ever," stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "With another $1 million now on the schedule, we're inching closer to what everyone in the United States has been craving. Yes, that weekly Sunday million dollar tournament could happen sooner than you think." Americas Cardroom's first $1 million guarantee, held on Sunday, February 22nd ran smoothly and saw 1,799 entries compete for a piece of the $1 million prize pool.
