As its name suggests, the Playpen is Americas Cardroom's attempt at giving their players a chance to play a game with all the bells and whistles of high-stakes action, for a very affordable and attractive investment. It essentially allows one to play in a cash game which runs according to a time-limited tournament format...after all, as the site is quick to point out: why should high-stakes poker players have all the fun?
What exactly are we talking about here though? Playpen players start out with a 1k chip stack, and every one of their chips has an actual cash value: 1 penny. The "buy-in" is therefore $10 - very accessible for everyone indeed. The game lasts for 4 levels, with each of these levels lasting 13 minutes and the blinds starting out at 5/10. The format is a 6-max one, so the action is fast and alert. After the time runs out, the chips in front of each player are counted and everyone is paid out according to the number of accumulated chips. If someone builds up a 30k stack for instance, he/she will walk away with $300.
Sign up to Americas Cardroom right now and live the excitement of nosebleed stakes cash game action without actually wrecking your bankroll.

Playpen events run on January 17, 20, 24 and 27 three or four times a day, so there will indeed be plenty of opportunities to play for everyone. What's more, the site has slapped an leader board promotion onto the side of the Playpen as well to spice things up further. The winner of the leader board will pick up a ticket to the $1k Cage. The Cage in which he/she will then play is the February 3 one, which kicks off at 7 PM ET.
The leader board points are awarded every time someone cashes in one of the Playpen events. If one finishes with exactly 1k chips, he will have 1k leader board points allotted. The leader board runs from January 17 to January 27. The winner of the leader board is the only one who will earn a reward from this promotional angle. The Cage ticket he/she will receive is non-transferrable.
Perhaps the greatest thing about the Playpen is that it sort of forces the action on participants: it's not about walking away with 1k chips - that will have accomplished nothing. It's about getting in there and giving it one's all, playing with blinds of 25/50 without the risk of losing tremendous amounts of money.
Play at Americas Cardroom. One of the last US-facing online poker rooms, the operation runs some rather outstanding promotions all the time.
