This month of August 2013 marks the one-year anniversary of Americas Cardroom’s The Beast progressive rake race tournaments. And in celebration of that fact, the site is about to make The Beast even bigger and meatier than ever, with a boost to the daily leaderboard awards and the addition of weekly leaderboards.
For starters, just this month, America’s Cardroom promises to award $31,000 more in daily leaderboard awards. Every day the site will award $1,000 in The Beast daily leaderboard prizes, with $300 going to the top finisher, $165 to 2nd, $140 to 3rd, $100 for 4th, $75 for 5th, $60 for 6th, $55 for 7th, $45 for 8th, $35 for 9th, and $25 for 10th. Players can win as many days as they are able, without restrictions.
What’s more, in addition to these and the regular monthly The Beast leaderboard, America’s Cardroom is now, as of this month, adding weekly leaderboards to The Beast promotion as well. Each week the site will award an additional $5,000 in weekly leaderboard awards with 1st place each week getting $500 and all players in the top $115 getting at least $10.
The qualifying periods for these weekly leaderboards is August 1 to 9, August 10 to 16, August 17 to 23, and August 24 to 31, starting at 00:00 EST on the given start date and ending at 23:59 EST on the given end date.
These leaderboards are track in addition to player’s regular The Beast standings and in no way does one interfere with the other.
