High Five Series Back at the Winning Poker Network: $5M Guaranteed

WPN Logo

The High Five tourney series is back at Americas Cardroom with an extended schedule and 100 total events. It will run from Sept. 10 to 29, so there will be plenty of opportunities for you to pick the days that you most feel like smoking the competition. The total guaranteed prize money up for grabs is a cool $5 million: almost four times what previous High Five series have awarded.

Besides ACR, the series events are accessible from any Winning Poker Network skin, including BlackChip Poker, True Poker, and Ya Poker.

High Five MTT Series - September 2019



There are five tournaments a day in the High Five series, and they're all in the afternoon and evening, starting between 1:00 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. ET. In keeping with the “high” theme of the series, there will be a 10-minute break every day at 4:20 p.m. ET.

Most of the events are No Limit Texas Hold'em affairs, but there are a few PLO and PLO8 games sprinkled into the mix. Buyins range from $2 + $0.10 up to $1,000 + $50 while the guaranteed prize pools run from $1,000 up to $420,000.

Main Events

With five MTTs per day, you can pretty much log in any day during the series and find something you're interested in playing. However, you may wish to mark your calendar for Sept. 15, 22, and 29 because these Sundays are when the three High Five Main Events will be taking place.

These Main Events will require $420 + $30 to buy into, and they boast guarantees of $420,000 apiece. Assuming a prize distribution based on the exact guarantee amount, this translates into a first-place payday of $75,600: certainly enough to make you feel high even if you weren't already! Of course, there's every likelihood that these tourneys will attract enough participation to comfortably exceed this mark, in which case the top payout will grow even larger.

Reload Bonus

ACR Reload Bonus Code JackPot
How to Enter the JackPot Bonus Code
at Americas Cardroom

Americas Cardroom is giving you the opportunity to increase your poker stash with a special High Five bonus code JackPot. All you need to do is type the Americas Cardroom bonus code JackPot into the cashier with your next deposit, and you'll receive a 50% matching bonus up to a maximum of $420 for free!

This reload bonus delivers its value at a rate of $5 for every 120 Award Points collected. You get 5.5 points per $1 paid in rake or tournament fees, so this bonus is the equivalent of about 23% rakeback. This is superior to the normal, everyday bonus at ACR, so it really behooves you to take advantage of it if you have any intention of competing in the High Five festivities.

You have until Sept. 10, when the series begins, to make your deposit and claim your complimentary bonus cash. The same reload bonus code is baked into other network sites too, like BCP, True, and Ya Poker, so you're covered no matter which room you access the games through.

Satellites Abound


Whereas some of the High Five MTTs cost just a few bucks to enter, there are others that might be too expensive for those with smaller account balances. Yet, you can still get into one of the big events for less by qualifying through satellite tournaments.

Main Event satellites have already started to appear in the lobby at price points between $33 and $55. We've received word that management is planning on adding more qualifiers for the other events – “lots of sats,” in the words of our network contact. Thus, you'll be granted the opportunity to win your seat for just a few bucks.

The rumor mill has also informed us that the Winning Poker Network might be debuting a new type of multi-day satellite that will award big-buyin tickets for a trivial investment. Flights for these new-style qualifiers will run throughout the day, to be combined and play as a unified field on the second day. We're not 100% sure if this will actually occur, but keep your eye on the poker lobby to see if these multi-day sats materialize.
