When Americas Cardroom announced ‘The Dream,’ many wondered how a micro-stakes event with a buy-in of just $2.50 could meet a $100,000 guarantee.
As it turns out, the site never had to sweat an overlay.
The progressive knockout tournament, which featured 22 day 1 starting flights, drew a massive field of 49,016 entries, which resulted in a total prize pool of $110,286.
In the end, the title went to online player ‘CatchM3IfUKan,’ who won not only the $8,275 first-place prize, but also an additional $1,447 in bounties. That win represents an astounding 333,800% ROI on the initial buy-in.
Following the tournament, ACR pro Chris Moneymaker said, “My own experiences demonstrate the life-changing opportunities poker can provide, but rarely have those opportunities been available at such a low buy-in as they are with ‘The Dream.’ As the name implies, ‘The Dream’ epitomizes big poker at basement buy-ins.”
Following the tournament’s success in it’s inaugural running, Americas Cardroom plans to schedule another running of ‘The Dream’ in the near future.
