ACR Search for The Next Moneymaker

He was the man who changed the face of poker forever back in 2003 with his historic satellite to WSOP Main Event victory, and now the search is on for the next Chris Moneymaker – ACR offering up a $105,000 sponsorship that you’ll have 100 chances to win for $1!

Moneymaker’s incredible story didn’t end with his $2.5million scoop from that infamous $88 satellite. It sparked a poker boom of course, but the man himself is still going strong with his recent ACR sponsorship deal.

To celebrate Chris joining as an ACR Team Pro, one lucky player will be the recipient of a $105,000 sponsorship package, with cash up front and tournament buy-ins, both live and online, to set you out on your pro career.

As Chris says in his video above, “We’re calling your bluff!” if you’ve been saying you could live with the pros at the table if only you had the bankroll. Americas CardRoom will be handing that bankroll to one lucky winner, and here’s how it works.

Selected tournaments running between April 12th and July 4th (an easy date to remember!) will give out points towards a leaderboard race. Hit the top 30 in each week’s race and you bag a seat in the grand finale, starting July 11th. The winner of that multi-day tournament scoops the ACR sponsorship package!

With every qualifying event costing just one penny, you’ll get 100 chances to become The Next Moneymaker for just $1!
Before we get into the nitty-gritty of the details, here’s what everyone will be chasing…

The Next Moneymaker Package

  • $25,000 cash
  • $40,000 in buy-ins for live tourneys
  • $40,000 in buy-ins for online events.

Winning such an incredible sponsorship package will of course be life-changing, but first up you’ll have to see off the rest of the chasers, and here’s how the leaderboards and tournaments work…

How to Qualify for the Final

  • Enter selected $0.01 buy-in tournaments between April 12th and July 4th
  • Play as many of these tourneys per week as you want.
  • The top 100 players (approximately) of each tournament will receive points towards the weekly leaderboard based on their finish.
  • At the end of each week, players count their top 5 finishes towards their weekly point total and the leaderboard resets.
  • Top 30 players each week (360 total) will advance to the final tourney starting July 11th.
  • In the event of a tie for 30th, both players advance!

That all leads up to the bgrandig finale, a multi-day event to decide the destination of ‘The Next Moneymaker’ title and prize.

Multi-day Final Tournament

  • The 360 players qualified players will take part in a multi-day tournament
  • Dates for the diary are July 11th, 18th and 25th
  • The winner scoops the $105k package and the title of “The Next Moneymaker”

It’s an incredible opportunity, and perhaps the one that all poker players dream of (after scooping the WSOP Main Event as Chris did of course!)
