(Press Release) San Jose, Costa Rica – February 5, 2016 – The old expression says there’s no such thing as a free lunch, but those people clearly never heard of Americas Cardroom. The US-facing online poker site today announced that the popular $150,000 Freebuy Super Series will return for a third time from Friday, February 26th through Sunday March 6th. All the tournaments in the 10-day series are free-to-enter with $0 buy-ins, while offering real money prize pools.
"We’re only a little into the New Year and things couldn’t be better with a High Five Tournament Series last month and now bringing back the Freebuy Super Series," stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "The opportunity to win part of $150,000 in guaranteed prize money with no risk is hard to pass up, so we expect a huge turnout."
The Freebuy Super Series first launched in May 2015 and then had a second edition in August due to heavy player demand. All the tournaments in the 10-day series are free-to-enter with $0 buy-ins, while offering real money prize pools. Players are allowed to do real money rebuys and add-ons.
All that is needed to participate in the Freebuy Super Series is an Americas Cardroom account, as no deposit is necessary. An initial bankroll is recommended however as many players do end up deciding to rebuy/add-on.
A Freebuy is an Americas Cardroom innovation that combines freerolls and buy-in poker tournaments. Registration for each Freebuy tournament opens two hours prior to the start and closes two hours after the event begins. Players will receive a 1,000 starting chip stack when they register
. Rebuys are available for 2 hours after the tournament starts and gives players an additional 2,500 chips. After 3 hours, a 10,000 add-on is made available.
The Freebuy Super Series III also includes a leaderboard with the top player in the series winning an extra prize that will be announced shortly.
Players who don’t want to wait for big tourney action can find everything they need on Super Bowl Sunday (Feb. 7th). The Hold’em Sunday Special offers $115,000 GTD and is the biggest Sunday major of any of the US facing sites. The new PLO Sunday Special continues to grow with the prize pool increasing to $37,000 GTD this week.
