The Gloves Are Off In The Cage, Americas Cardroom's $5,000+$100 Cash Game.
Put your poker chips down and your fists up, America. The blood is about to fly in online poker's fiercest cash game ever. Americas Cardroom today announced The Cage, a no-holds-barred cash game with a time based tournament format where the battle for poker chips is on. Poker players will start this heart-pounding, 6-max table event with 5,000 in chips and will win the value of their chip stack at the end of 3 hours.
"It's time to ground and pound the online poker tables," stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. "We're raising the stakes with an unbelievable poker cash game that's designed for players who are in it to win it."
The Cage is unlike any cash game in online poker history. Players who register for the $5,000+$100 cash game will enter The Cage with 5,000 in starting chips. Each chip has a real dollar value. Players will fight to stay alive and will emerge from The Cage once the 3-hour clock hits zero or by busting out.
While The Cage is considered a cash game, the structure will be familiar to tournament players. The Cage features 3 levels: Hour one with $10/$20 blinds and $2 antes; Hour two with $25/$50 blinds and $5 antes; and Hour three with $50/$100 blinds and $10 antes.
Upon the conclusion of the 3 hours, players will emerge from The Cage and win the value of their chip stack. For example, a player who has 50,000 left in chips when the clock hits 0:00 will win $50,000 as soon as the cash game concludes.
The buy-in for The Cage is $5,000+$100 but qualifiers for the multi-table cash game are available at Americas Cardroom from as low as $1.50. The event is scheduled at 8:00pm EST on October 8th.
The Cage is already gaining the attention of some Texas Hold'em powerhouses. Harris notes that some legendary pros, including famous players in the online poker community, have expressed huge interest in going to battle in The Cage.
Fresh off the announcement of their upcoming $1,000,000 GTD Winning Millions tournament, ACR continues to find innovative ways to bring exciting poker back to players in the USA.
