ACR High Five Tournament Series Returns in April
Americas Cardroom just wrapped up its massive OSS Cub3d three-part tournament series, which kicked off on February 2 and ran through March 15. And poker players cumulatively won millions upon millions of dollars.
As we head into April, ACR players have another online poker tournament series. The popular High Five series offers something for everyone, a wide range of buy-ins and guarantees and five tournaments per day. There will also be double the usual Main Event action, with a multiple-flight lower buy-in Main Event with $420K GTD and a larger buy-in boasting of $1M GTD.
The High Five was originally created with a weed-smoking theme, with numerous references to 420:
–Daily tournament breaks at 4:20pm ET
–Main Event buy-in of $420 + $25
–Smaller Main Event guarantee of $420K
–First event on March 31 starting at 4:20pm
–Series conclusion on April 20 (4/20)
Some tournaments even reference the activity, like the Wake & Bake events, Light Up!, and the PKO Late Toke.
