Poker is poker, but Americas Cardroom (ACR) adds a twist with its Cage Live events. The poker events are held in awesome Costa Rica and give players a chance to party it up for a few days in the hottest country in Latin America.
The two-day Cage Live event is unique and only available with ACR. Players start with $5,000 in chips, working their magic through four progressive levels. When the event ends, those still remaining get to keep everything in their stacks. ACR is doubling down on the excitement this year with the new Double Buy Option, which will see even more money up for grabs.
Here are some of the past big winners at The Cage Live:
- Troy Quenneville $51,315 – January 2018
- Dan Stavila $42,115 – July 2018
- Thomas Cannuli $30,745 – October 2018
- Nick Boll $50,485 – December 2018
Chris Roberts, who won the second Cage Live event last year, said in a post-tournament interview, “[It’s a] great structure … Costa Rica’s been a great time … It’s a beautiful country and I’m glad I was able to experience it … I would do it again.”
Mark your calendars for these dates:
- March 29th – April 1st-HAPPENING NOW!
- May 31st – June 3rd
- August 9th – 12th
- October 4th -7th

Satellite tournaments are being held every Sunday on ACR, with Cage Live travel packages being awarded. Each $8,340 package offers airfare, hotel accommodations, the tournament buy-in and $1,000 in cash, and two are being handed out each week. ACR also includes a tour of its offices so players can get an exclusive look behind the scenes.
Something bigger is in store for ACR this year. The site is introducing the $5 Million Venom tournament and it’s going to be the biggest event ever offered by any US-facing poker site. The $5 Million Venom is going to be one for the record books! To learn more, check out the ACR poker client.
