Time-Based Tournaments Overview
Grinding for hour upon hour only to bubble in a poker tournament is quite a frustrating experience, but the time-based events at Americas Cardroom eliminate this problem. They’re set to start and end at a specific time, so you’ll know in advance the maximum amount of time you’ll have to devote to them.
Time-Based Tournaments Details
These unique competitions are actually a combination of cash game and tournament. They feature a designated starting time and increasing blinds, like tourneys do. However, the prize distribution is more akin to a regular ring game table: At the end of the contest, everyone still standing converts their chips into cash at a fixed exchange rate.
There’s no late registration, re-entry, rebuys or add-ons here. The chips you get when you buy in are issued a single time, and they cannot be replenished.
Time-Based Tournaments Schedule
The main time-based event at ACR is known as The Cage. It costs $1,000 + $50 to enter and runs Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. ET. Entrants get 1,000 chips, each of which is worth $1 and will be exchanged at this rate at the end of the tournament five hours after its start.
For low-rollers, the Friday Playpen provides a similar experience. It only costs $10 + $0.50 to enter, and it lasts just one hour. Each of the starting 1,000 chips is worth a penny each. Five separate Playpen tournaments take place each Friday in the afternoon and evening.
