Online Super Series Overview
There’s already a pretty robust weekly tournament schedule at Americas Cardroom, but sometimes the site juices things up a bit with its Online Super Series (OSS). Guaranteeing millions of dollars in prizes, this recurring series brings to the online arena some of the excitement of popular offline poker tours, like the WSOP, EPT and WPT. Each Online Super Series runs for about two weeks.
Online Super Series Events
The Online Super Series contains dozens of events at a wide range of buyin levels. There are usually some tourneys that cost less than $5 to enter as well as a few that require the payment of hundreds of dollars. No Limit Texas Hold’em accounts for the bulk of the schedule, as you would expect, but there are typically a smattering of PLO and PLO/8 events.
Related Tournament Series
Americas Cardroom in the past has deployed Mini Online Super Series, which contain smaller-buyin tournaments geared toward low-stakes players. It has also ran Bigger Online Super Series, which have events that cost as much as $5,000 to enter. On occasion, the poker room runs these two series along with the regular Online Super Series back to back and calls the entire amalgamation “OSS Cub3d.”
While they’re not featured at every instance of the OSS, leaderboard competitions are provided from time to time. Some of the prizes that they have awarded to the best series performaers are cash, prize packages to the Punta Cana Poker Classic and sterling silver bracelets.
Online Super Series Satellites
Although some OSS events probably fit easily within your bankroll, others might be too expensive for your tastes. Fortunately, you can enter satellites for most of these tournaments and thereby win your ticket for a reduced price.
