$105K Sponsorship at Americas Cardroom for Next Moneymaker

Logo of Americas Cardroom

It was in February 2021 that Chris Moneymaker made an announcement that he was joining Americas Cardroom as the site’s ambassador. This came following his decision to leave PokerStars following a 17-year tenure as one of the brand professionals at the end of 2020.

Now, it seems as though Americas Cardroom is looking to find the next Moneymaker, and there is a $105,000 sponsorship package available for that lucky player too. As a way of celebrating the arrival of one of the poker world’s best players, the site is allowing all members to involve themselves in the competition. So what do you need to do to benefit from the $105K sponsorship deal?

Necessary Steps to Qualify

Enumerated List

In order to partake in the Moneymaker event and celebrate the arrival of Chris to Americas Cardroom, there are certain qualifications needed. Players will all compete in selected tournaments that take place over the 12 weeks between April 12 to July 4. All buy-ins to the events will cost a single cent and players can participate in as many of these tournaments per week as they like.

The top 100 players of each of these tournaments will receive points, and these contribute towards the weekly leaderboard based upon their finish. At the end of each week, all players’ top 5 finishes are counted toward their weekly point total. The leaderboard then resets for the next week.

The top 30 players of each week (360 in total) will advance along to the final tournament, which will take place on the three aforementioned July dates, starting on the 11th.

In the instance of a tie occurring in a weekly qualifier for the 30th position, both players involved will advance. You can only qualify once for the multi-day final tournament. Players who qualify more than once will only receive their original entry and the others will be removed.

The winner of “The Next Moneymaker” package will also become a sponsored pro at Americas Cardroom. ACR will arrange travel for the live events. It is important to note that the winner will have to make themselves available for branded interviews, photos, and promotional opportunities as part of the agreement.

It is important to note that this Moneymaker promotion is only available via the Americas Cardroom platform and not through any other Winning Poker Network (WPN) brands. This is due to the fact that Chris is an ambassador for the single poker room and not for the entire network.
