Americas Cardroom to Host MOSS with Mini Buy-ins
November seems to be the perfect month for micro and mini buy-in online poker tournaments. Americas Cardroom is ready with the Mini Online Super Series (MOSS), one of the most popular of its OSS variations.
Often, MOSS is a part of the OSS Cub3d. The Mini Online Super Series leads into the broader OSS and then to the Bigger Online Super Series (BOSS), as the full series recently played out in August.
This one, which will run from November 22 to December 7, will offer only mini buy-in tournaments. And across the 167-event schedule, ACR guarantees at least $2.5 million in prize pools.
Let’s get to the details.
November 2020 MOSS Action
This edition of the Mini Online Super Series will kick off this Sunday, November 22 and run through December 7. Just as many parts of the United States – and world, actually – enter another form of lockdown to fend of the coronavirus pandemic, MOSS steps in with cost-effective online poker action.
The schedule boasts of 167 tournaments and $2.5 million in prize pool guarantees. The buy-ins are as low as $0.45 and only as high as $55.
The vast majority of the events are Hold’em, but there are a fair amount of Omaha events and even a little Stud action. The formats vary greatly, with six-max and 8-max tables, turbos and mega stacks, and a whole lot of progressive knockouts (PKOs).
Americas Cardroom lists the full schedule, which kicks off this Sunday with Event 0, a $16.50 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament playing 8-handed and with a $125K guarantee. A look at the entire Monday, November 23rd schedule provides an example of the variety of action available every day:
–Event 1: $6 NLHE 8-Max PKO ($5K GTD)
–Event 2: $16.50 NLHE ($40K GTD)
–Event 3: $55 NLHE ($50K GTD)
–Event 4: $22 NLHE 6-Max PKO ($20K GTD)
–Event 5: $0.45 NLHE ($500 GTD)
–Event 6: $6.60 NLHE Turbo Mega Stack ($4K GTD)
–Event 7: $8.80 NLHE 8-Max PKO ($4K GTD)
–Event 8: $1.40 PLO 8-Max ($2K GTD)
–Event 9: $32 NLHE 8-Max ($25K GTD)
–Event 10: $11 NLHE 6-Max Bounty Plus ($5K GTD)
Two Main Events, Better Than One
ACR is rarely content with offering just one Main Event, so this iteration of MOSS offers two of them. Both offer $250K guarantees and multiple playing days:
–Event 73 on Sunday, November 29: $55 NLHE 8-Max PKO ($250K GTD)
—–10 starting flights from Monday, November 22; Day 2 begins November 29 at 8pm ET
—–Final table on Monday, November 30 at 8pm ET
–Event 156 on Sunday, December 6: $55 NLHE 8-Max ($250K GTD)
—–9 starting flights from Sunday, November 29; Day 2 begins Sunday, December 6 at 8pm ET
—–Final table on Monday, December 7 at 8pm ET
There are multiple qualifiers leading up to the Main Events. ACR lists the primary mega satellites (and freerolls into them) on this page of its website.
We Will Talk About Fight Club
Understanding that the first rule of Fight Club is that you don’t talk about Fight Club, we might already be out of Fight Club.
Anyway, there are two Fight Club PKO tournaments in this MOSS series. Each one offers 20 flights at just $9.90 each, with $6 of that going to the bounties and $3 to the prize pool. Players receive 50K starting chips but blinds increase every seven minutes, so the action will be fast and furious. Each flight plays 19 levels.
Players who survive a starting day will return for Day 2, which plays to a final table. The next day, that final table plays to a winner.
Did we mention each Fight Club offers a $25K guarantee?
Here are the basics, with further details available at ACR:
–Event 59: $9.90 NLHE 8-Max PKO Fight Club ($25K GTD)
—–Flights run November 22-28; Day 2 begins Saturday, November 28 at 6pm ET
—–Final table on Sunday, November 29 at 2pm ET
–Event 142: $9.90 NLHE 8-Max PKO Fight Club ($25K GTD)
—–Flights run November 29-December 5; Day 2 begins Saturday, December 5 at 6pm ET
—–Final table on Sunday, December 6 at 2pm ET
