Main OSS Cub3d Underway on Americas Cardroom

The biggest series offered on an American-facing poker site is one-third of the way through its lineup. The Online Super Series – OSS Cub3d XI, to be precise – kicked off on February 7 on Americas Cardroom.

The first of three sections of the series was MOSS, the Mini Online Super Series, which offered mostly low buy-ins for 137 tournaments. They ran from February 7-22 with buy-ins as low as $0.41. The finale of MOSS was its $55 buy-in No Limit Hold’em Main Event with a $500K guarantee. Attendance wildly surpassed expectations:

–Event 137: $55 NLHE 8-Max MOSS Main Event

–Total entries: 12,917

–Total prize pool: $645,850 (well beyond $500K guarantee)

The eventual winner was “BallSoHardU” who took it down for $61,362, beating “flikkflakk” who won $36,813 for the second-place finish.

With MOSS in the books, it was time to kick off the core of the series, the one with the broadest range of buy-ins and tournament structures. It started this week on February 22 and runs through March 8.

OSS Offers Options

The main portion of OSS Cub3d offers tournaments with buy-ins from $10 to $2,500. There are 131 tournaments running through Monday, March 8, with 8-10 events per day.

There are quite a few PLO and PLO8 options in the mix, but NLHE has the most variations – 6-max and 8-max, turbo and hyper-turbo, rebuys and mega stacks, high rollers and super high rollers, and a solid number of progressive knockouts (PKOs).
