Fans of the television show The Simpsons have a smile on their face this morning as Americas Cardroom member ‘bartsimpsonscool69’ won the latest installment of THE CAGE on Wednesday night. After 4 hours of an epic battle, thirteen players were able to get a cash prize in this great promotion that combines the excitement of a cash game with the strategy of a high stakes poker tournament.
“We want to congratulate ‘bartsimpsonscool69’ on his triumph in The Cage and are just happy that he didn’t tell the other competitors to Eat My Shorts after the win” laughed Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "In all seriousness though, we’re glad to see another good turnout which proves members like the new lower buy-in format."
The Cage is a 4-hour long cash game in tournament format that plays every Wednesday night (7pm ET) at US-facing online poker site, Americas Cardroom. It has a new lower buy-in of $1,000+50, allowing the opportunity for more players to fight their way to victory each week.
