ACR Poker Celebrates New Branding with OSS XL
It’s a new look, new software upgrade, and new name for Americas Cardroom. Now ACR Poker, the Winning Poker Network changed everything from that name to the domain (now acrpoker-dot-eu) and a new logo.
The initial change happened on July 5, but many people were preoccupied with a little tournament happening in Las Vegas at the time. A video explained to players that the new look came with easier access to viewing their cashier information, as well as a much sleeker lobby with less clutter and more options directly on the home page. ACR categorized cash games by stake and provided a quick join button, and tournaments were streamlined with the feature any ones you enter being pinned on your screen. The new filters and search capabilities were much more expansive.
Over time, players noticed more software updates that went with the new ACR Poker. And those will continue. For example, the most recent update on September 6 delivered a new overlay alert and search bar for player searches.
Players will find the new ACR Poker easier to navigate, but here is an overview of the changes and the new look:
Largest OSS XL Ever
As the site updates continued, the World Series of Poker ended, ACR Poker hosted its High Five Series online and Cage live event in Costa Rica and then, in August, ACR Poker announced the newest and largest Online Super Series ever.
The September series was to be an OSS XL, supersized beyond the norm, this time with 519 tournaments and more than $50M in prize pool guarantees – well beyond the $40M OSS on ACR earlier in the year. The new site wasted no time in upping the ante to reach a new bar. (Also note that there are actually more than 519 tournaments because many of the events have different versions, such as H for high buy-in level, M for medium, L for low buy-in level, and MicroA or MicroB for the very smallest buy-ins.)
The official series runs through October 2 with Main Events scheduled for the last weekends in September and just into October.
It is difficult to pull highlights from a 519-tournament schedule, but here are the Main Events:
- Event 356: $2,650 buy-in PLO 6-Max Main Event (Sept 24, $500K GTD)
- Event 491: $109 buy-in NLHE Main Event (Oct 1-2, $500K GTD)
- Event 350: $2,650 buy-in NLHE Main Event (Sept 24-Oct 3, two flights, $2.5M GTD)
- Event 351: $1,050 buy-in NLHE Main Event (Sept 24-Oct 3, two flights, $2.5M GTD)
And here are other key attractions:
- Event 1: $215 buy-in NLHE Mystery Bounty Multi-flight (Sept 3-Oct 2, $2M GTD)
- Event 2: $66 buy-in NLHE Mystery Bounty Multi-flight (Sept 3-Oct 2, $1M GTD)
- Event 3: $630 buy-in NLHE Multi-flight (Sept 3-Oct 2, $2M GTD)
- Event 4: $16.50 buy-in NLHE Mystery Bounty Multi-flight (Sept 3-Oct 2, $300K GTD)
- Event 5: $2.50 buy-in NLHE Mystery Bounty Multi-flight (Sept 3-Oct 2, $75K GTD)
The full schedule, complete with structure information for each, is on the OSS page of the ACR Poker website.
OSS XL Leaderboard Contest
More than 500 tournaments are enough for some players, but others want more ways to win. ACR Poker knows that a leaderboard competition is the way to go.
The OSS XL Leaderboard Contest runs through October 2 with $60K in cash and tournament tickets up for grabs. It is all compliments of ACR Poker.
Players earn points for this leaderboard based on the tournaments they play and cash. And so as to keep the high rollers from dominating, there are three separate leaderboards as well as an overall winner. The prizes and leaderboard limitations are as follows:
- Overall champion = $15K
- High Buy-in Leaderboard #1 ($104.50 buy-ins and higher) = $26,676 for top 10 finishers
- Medium Buy-in Leaderboard #2 ($10.50 – $88 buy-ins) = $12,826 for top 10 finishers
- Low Buy-in Leaderboard #3 ($0.10 – $8.80 buy-ins) = $6,919 for top 10 finishers
The running leaderboard totals are on the leaderboard page of the ACR Poker website.
