“After the huge success of our recent $5 Million Venom, our traffic has spiked to unprecedented levels,” stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris.
“And while our new software is designed to be more than capable of handling our growing community, we did experience some server overload, causing tournament downtime and cancellations. We’ve got our best and brightest on the job and we thank all our players for their patience.”
Americas CardRoom Freeroll
To make up for the player inconvenience, Americas Cardroom is hosting a Freebuy Super Series in October featuring $250,000 in guaranteed prize money. That’s a quarter of a million dollars up for grabs, for free.
What is a Freebuy Tournament
A Freebuy tournament is an Americas Cardroom innovation that combines freerolls and buy-in poker tournaments. Every player who registers for a Freebuy tourney will get their chip stack for free and compete for a real money prize pool. The Freebuy tournaments also offer real money rebuys and add-ons from between $1 and $5, depending on the tournament.
Americas Cardroom Statement
Harris notes that any players affected by the tournament downtime or cancellation will be refunded according to the site’s terms and conditions. “Our community means everything to us, and we make sure players are always treated right. Our tourney schedule continues as normal while we work through everything. We hope to have disruptions completely eliminated soon. Thanks again for supporting us.”
