ACR’s $250,000 Freebuy Super Series is your “free lunch”

ACR Freebuy series infoThe old expression says “there is no such thing as a free lunch”. Well, whoever came up with that expression has clearly never heard of Americas Cardroom.

After a couple-year absence, the US-facing poker site is bringing back their Freebuy Super Series from October 16th to November 3rd. It has six daily tourneys (114 total) and each is free to enter. The total guaranteed prize pools are $250,000, including a $20,000 Main Event on the final day.

Every player who enters a Freebuy tournament gets 1,000 free chips. You can choose to fight it out with that or do real money rebuys (2,500 chips) and an add-on (10,000 chips). You can also earn free rebuys by completing easy tasks on social media like watching an Americas Cardroom’s YouTube video. Click for more information on the ACR Freebuy Super Series

$6 Million Venom coming this November

After the Freebuy Super Series ends, you’ll want to focus your attention on something even bigger. It’s their $6 Million Venom tourney that starts Wednesday, November 27th.

At least $1 Million will go to the winner, the same as during their $5 Million Venom this July which finished with a $6,382,500 prize pool. Earn your $2,650 Venom seat for far less via satellites, or even for free through their step tournaments.

The Best Value in Poker Tournaments, the Bodog 100k!

We are updating this post as Bodog Poker left the USA and was replaced by Bovada Poker. Well, now Bovada Poker was taken over by Ignition Poker. Players were given the opportunity to move their accounts to the new poker room. Ignition Poker is part of the Bodog family and shares players across the network. Visit our Ignition Poker review for more details. The information in this post rings true today as it did when originally posted as Ignition Poker hosts the Sunday $100k! This MTT still remains an outstanding value with large overlays.

In my last article I shared the bankroll management strategy of playing in guaranteed tournaments with overlays. One of the very best values is playing in the weekly 100k guaranteed tournament at Igntion Poker. The 100k is Igntion Poker’s top paying tournament and it has historically had huge overlays. In fact, most weeks may see as much as a $30,000 overlay! There is no other big money poker tournament with this small of a field.

So would you rather play against tens of thousands of other players or would you rather go against 500- 800 players and have a shot at a $25,000 first prize? And… Igntion accepts US players and now Canadian players can play at Igntion too!

To get in on the action of the Igntion 100k you can get in several ways. First off is buyin in direct for $162. Now that might be a little steep for many players (including myself) so Igntion runs a huge amount of satellites to the game. The first level of 100k qualifiers is called the "Cheap Seats". These tournaments only cost 1.10 to play and Igntion adds one seat to the 100k semi-final for every 34 players in the game.

You can also catapult your way into the Igntion 100k from satellites that have low buy ins of $7.70, $17, $22 and 34.00. On game day (Sunday) the lobby is packed with "Last Chance" qualifiers with a new satellite starting about every 2 minutes! Visit the Igntion 100k Qualifier Schedule to see when games start. You can even get a seat in the qualifiers with Igntion Poker Points that you earn from playing poker!

There is another way to get a FREE seat to the 100k! Simply open an account with Igntion Poker here, make your first deposit (you get a 110% match up to $550 FREE) and you will get a seat in six of the $100K New Player Qualifier Freerolls! As I said before, the Igntion 100k is most likely the best value in online poker. If you are not playing this tournament, you are missing out on an incredible value. Sign up with Igntion Poker today and best of luck in the 100k!

Cake Network Down? No Tournaments? Here’s Some Help!

Poker players used to playing on the Cake Network of online poker rooms have been longing for action this week as the Cake Network continues to experience issues in providing tournament poker both in sit n go and multi table games. The players online has taken a serious nose dive and the usual 6,000+ players has dwindled down to the faithful ring game players accounting for volume to be anywhere from 2000 to 4000 players online. The poker sites on the network all share in the same announcement when you open the poker room software:

Attention: Tournaments currently unavailable

As you may be aware, we’ve experienced some connection issues over the past few days. As our team works on the issue, we’ve removed the tournaments from the lobby until such time that we can guarantee a smooth playing experience for players. Please stay tuned.

We applaud the network in their efforts to ensure a reliable tournament experience and certainly look forward to them returning the tournaments to the players. In the mean time, what is a tournament junkie to do? We know you want to play in a safe and secure tournament environment and feel it is our duty to help you to choose the best and safest in tournament action. Ring games are great to play, but nothing compares to the feeling one gets when you have battled your way to the final table and ultimately the win! Let us guide you along with a few superior choices in online poker rooms that accept US players and have a great tournament selection and the best in poker bonuses too.

Play Tournament Poker Now Our first choice would be the US (and now Canada) friendly Bodog Poker. The tournament lobby is full of multi table tournaments at all buy in levels from freerolls to massive guaranteed tournament. The peak of guaranteed MTT’s is the Sunday Bodog 100k tournament. Notorious for huge overlays, the 100k has become one of the best values in online poker tournaments. You can buy in direct for $162 or play it smart and win a 100k seat from playing the 100k qualifiers that start as low as $1 or 30 Bodog poker points! Bodog Poker is also well known for it’s soft tables, so in between tournaments you can build your bankroll at the cash games.

Sit n Go’s are running in full force at Bodog too. You will find that you won’t have to wait long to get the game started as player volume remains rather high 24/7. The even have beginner sit n go’s that payout half the field, unlike double or nothing games, the payout grows larger the higher you finish. These are great for players that are just starting out!

You’ll get 110% bonus up to $500 with Bodog Poker when you use this link, and 10% of the bonus is an instant (ready to play) bonus! When you deposit for the first time, you’ll also get invited to the new player 100k qualifier freerolls where you can win a seat to the 100k for free! Get started now

Another wise choice and still accepting US poker players is Full Tilt Poker. Being one of the giants in the online poker world, you’ll never have a problem finding a tournament or sit n go to join in at Full Tilt. One of the very best values in multi table tournaments is the 10k Daily Dollar. The buy in is only $1 and the tournament has a $10,000 guaranteed prize pool! They run this twice daily, at 3:15 pm eastern the 10K Daily Dollar with rebuys and again at 8:15 pm they run it again but as a freezeout (no rebuys). We can’t see how you could have more fun for only a buck!

With the player volume nearing 100,000 players online during peak times, the wait for a sit n go is nearly zero. The tables fill up as fast as you can click the register button. One of the most unique sit n go games is the Matrix Sit n Go, this is a four in one game… you buy in once and play four sit n gos at the same time. They even have a leaderboard in these special games. Half the prize pool goes to the top three in each game and the other half goes to the top players on the leaderboard. All games are 9 player (single table) sit n gos. Of course the cash games are well represented too.

Sign up to FullTilt Poker using referral code PPUS100 and you’ll be treated to a 100% match bonus up to $600 FREE! US players are always allowed at Full Tilt!

Last but in no way least, PokerStars continues to accept US players and being the worlds largest online poker site, there is always a game to register for. The only drawback is picking the game you want to play, the selection is incredible! Don’t expect to sign up for a sit n go and go make a sandwich when you are playing at PokerStars, the games start extremely fast!

The highlight MTT at PokerStars is the Sunday Million. This is the weekly $1.5 million guaranteed tournament with a buy in of $215. You can climb the ranks and get entry by playing in the daily satellite games! You’ll also find more qualifiers to live poker tournament at PokerStars than any other online poker site!

One turnoff that many players had about PokerStars was the had such a low first deposit bonus. This has been cured as they recently raised the bonus to $600 free! All you have to do is signup to PokerStars here, then enter the PokerStars Bonus code “STARS600” when you make your deposit. They will match you 100% all the way to $600 FREE! Each time you earn 170 VPP’s they will drop $10 into your account until you have received all of the free bonus. You’ll have a full 6 months to clear the bonus cash too! And… you don’t have to deposit all at once either, PokerStars will allow you to make up to three deposits within your first 90 days up to earn up to the $600 maximum deposit! Click here to join PokerStars today!

We hope this helps you in finding a safe and secure place to play your sit n gos and MTT’s while Cake fixes the issues they are suffering. You can find more online poker rooms and poker reviews by visiting our online poker page here.

Bodog Europe Launches for Canadian Players

Sept. 3, 2009

It has been a monumental year for the Bodog brand and its licensees, and Bodog Europe is excited to officially announce yet another key milestone in the brand’s history: the launch of the Bodog experience to the Canadian market.

McDonnell noted, “We’re extremely excited to be able to bring the unique Bodog experience to Canadian players. Canadians are passionate sports fans and are extremely savvy consumers.

Bodog Europe – the upstart Bodog brand licensee already taking the UK by storm with its European-facing site – had originally secured the rights to the world-famous “Bodog” brand for use in Europe only. However, when Bodog Europe Managing Director Keith McDonnell learned of’s willingness to entertain proposals to license the brand for use within Canada, he was quick to act, and secured the exclusive Canadian license.

“The Bodog brand is celebrating its fifteenth year anniversary this year – an absolutely remarkable pedigree and testament to its enduring values in an industry that quickly kills off mediocrity. The brand has gone through quite an evolution during that long history, and Bodog Europe is looking forward to carrying the torch forward for at least another fifteen years of world-class customer service, unbeatable promotions, and, above all – fun.”
