In 2003, Chris Moneymaker turned an online satellite into a WSOP main event championship in Las Vegas, going from unknown Tennessee accountant to a man credited with helping to spark the poker boom.
While Americas Cardroom is ecstatic to have Chris on the team as a brand ambassador, the leading online poker site is also doing their part to create the Next Moneymaker with their latest promotion.
The Next Moneymaker 2.0 guarantees a total of $1 million to players who compete on the leaderboard. $500,000 will go to weekly competition players, and the other $500,000 will be earmarked for the final tournament June 4-5.
The final tournament winner will get the poker prize of a lifetime. The package includes $100,000 in cash to fund an entire summer of buy-ins in Las Vegas (or to spend as you see fit), plus a $15,000 all-expense paid ticket to play in the biggest tournament in the world.
To climb the leaderboard, all you have to do is play in ACR’s weekly competitions, which run every Saturday at 1:30 pm ET from March 11 – May 27. You get points based on where you finish, and you’ll also earn points just for playing and bonus points if you play in every event.
Those points will then be converted into chips for the final tournament on June 4-5. The more points you rack up, the better start you’ll have in the final!
Each weekly leaderboard competition is $86 to enter and allow one re-entry, although players can also qualify for less via satellite.
