The CageThere’s poker, and there’s poker Americas Cardroom style. The number one US-facing poker site knows how to live it up and is once again running its Live Cage events among the tropical palm trees of beautiful Costa Rica.

The Cage Live is a two-day event that gives players the chance to win more than just a piece of a pot. Players begin with $5,000 in chips and use their skills to advance through four levels. At the end of the second day, whatever chips are still in the stack are yours to keep. This year, things will be even more exciting with the introduction of the Double Buy Option.

It wouldn’t be possible to visit Costa Rica without a little partying. Hang out at the bar, mingle with players and ACR staff and take a tour of the ACR offices to see what goes on to make all the excitement possible.

Josh Damm, who made the trip to the Cage Live last May, said in an interview during the event,

“It’s been fun so far. I ran really well the first level … I went on about a four-hour walk this morning through San Jose and saw a lot of cool things… Everyone’s been really nice.”

There are still several Cage Live events on tap for this year:

  • March 29 – April 1
  • May 31 – June 3
  • August 9 – August 12
  • October 4 – October 7
  • December 6 – December 9

ACR is giving away two weekly Cage Live packages through satellites on the site every Sunday. Each $8,340 package includes airfare, hotel, Cage Live buy-in and $1,000 in cash.

Here are some of the past big winners at the Cage Live:

  • Troy Quenneville $51,315 – January 2018
  • Dan Stavila $42,115 – July 2018
  • Thomas Cannuli $30,745 – October 2018
  • Nick Boll $50,485 – December 2018

The Cage Live is only the beginning of what is going to be a super-hot year on ACR. The site is getting ready to introduce its largest tournament in history, the $5 Million Venom. This tournament is going to be unlike anything ever seen and is going to be wild!
