Even as state-by-state legalization progresses in parts of the country, US-based online poker players have long been deprived of majors with large prize-pools. Americas Cardroom's Sunday Special fills in exactly this type of void, by offering US players a guarantee of $115k to play for week after week (players from elsewhere are welcome to join the action as well of course). The Sunday Special was introduced back in January 2015, and it initially featured a guarantee of $25k. That was only a starting point though: the site devised an ingenious plan to set the ideal guarantee for the tournament: every week when the event covered its guarantee, they would increase the prize-pool by $5k. This would continue until the guarantee would not be covered two weekends in a row. This is how the $115k mark was reached and this will be the permanent prize-pool from here on out.
Sign up to Americas Cardroom right now and take advantage of the massive prize-pool offered by their $115k Sunday Special!

The buy-in for the tournament is quite standard for this sort of a weekend major: it costs $215 to buy in directly, but there are a large number of qualifiers and sub-qualifiers running. Players will start off stacks of 10k chips - deep enough to give poker skill a definitive edge over the luck-factor - and the winner is guaranteed to take home at least $20k (potentially more).
The Sunday Special kicks off at 3:00 PM EST each Sunday of course. Taking a closer look at the satellite schedule is well worth one's while because earning a seat is indeed possible for no investment at all. There are daily freerolls running (at 12:15 PM), which offer a path into higher-tier qualifiers. Those who want to play for guaranteed seats will have to cough up a buy-in though: every day, there's a $6.6 satellite running too, which guarantees 2 seats and which features a Rebuys/Addons structure.
On Saturdays, there's a $33 Sunday Special Satellite, which hands out no fewer than 10 guaranteed seats. This one may be costlier, but the odds for picking up a seat are obviously bigger in these too. Other than that, On Sundays, there's a qualifier running almost every 10 minutes. Most of these qualifiers cost $23 to enter and they offer one guaranteed seat. An exception is another $33 Sunday Qualifier, which features no fewer than 20 guaranteed seats in the big one.
Register an Americas Cardroom account right now and start playing in the above said satellites: playing for a $115k guarantee in a US-facing poker room is no small feat these days...
