The High Five tourney series is back at Americas Cardroom in time for 4/20 this year. Actually, it will run from April 17 to 21, so you can pick the day that you most feel like playing poker, or play on all of them. Like usual, there are 25 tournaments for you to attempt to smoke the competition in, and the total guaranteed prizes amount to $1,300,000. Besides ACR, the series events are accessible from any Winning Poker Network skin, including BlackChip Poker, True Poker, and Ya Poker.
There are five tournaments a day in the High Five mini-series, and they're all in the afternoon and evening, starting between 1:00 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. ET. Most of the events are No Limit Texas Hold'em affairs, but there is a 6+ Hold'em tourney as well as a single event apiece for Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, No Limit Omaha Hi, and No Limit Omaha-8. In keeping with the “high” theme of the series, there will be a 10-minute break every day at 4:20 p.m. ET. Buyins range from $1 + $0.05 up to $1,000 + $50.
The Main Event will run on Sun., April 21 at 4:00 p.m. ET. It costs $420 + $30 to enter, and it comes with a prize pool guarantee of $420,000.
Here's the full High Five schedule:
If you think you need to recharge your bankroll in preparation for the High Five series, then there's a reload bonus that you can take advantage of. Typing the Americas Cardroom bonus code HIGH into the cashier with your next deposit will entitle you to a 50% bonus up to $420. It's valid for use from April 10 through April 14.
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.
Starting at just $1.10, these feeder tourneys are already listed in the poker lobby although most of them aren't scheduled to begin until just before the High Five itself does on April 17.
If you're eager to jump into the High Five and try to parlay your poker skills into a big tournament payday, then you'll need to have a valid account at a participating network site first. We advise our readers to play at Americas Cardroom, which is the flagship WPN site. We offer a $10 free no deposit credit when you sign up using our links and enter the bonus code PRB10FREE. After that, you'll get a 100% up to $1,000 first deposit bonus and $50 of free cash. To find out more, head over to our Americas Cardroom poker review.
There are a number of other reputable rooms on the Winning Poker Network, but each of them is inferior to ACR in a number of small ways. Still, if you're searching for an alternative site from which you can join the High Five tournaments, it may behoove you to explore our reviews of BlackChip Poker, True Poker, and Ya Poker (non-US).
