I have been recommending the site strongly since they changed the horrible ownership of DoylesRoom and changed the name to Americas CardRoom. Slowly but surely they are rightfully losing the image and bad taste in the mouth that DoylesRoom frequently gave poker players. They are offering a crapload of promotions. The site is nothing special to look at, just a plain interface, no avatars, but
Things that Americas Cardroom is doing to attract players:
*The Software seems to work properly without constant freezeups, etc (can play up to 20)
-Tournaments & SnG Fees; Included in rakeback calculations
-Bonuses are deducted from rake
-Honors old accounts DoylesRoom 33% Rakeback
*100% Bonus Deposit up to $1,000 (note that it has no expiration to complete nor gets voided with cash outs)
*Deposits - takes visa
debit or credit transactions; Western Union, Moneygram
*Cashouts - Offers Debit Card so you can use ATM to get cash (seems that Checks to American players are by far faster than Cake and Merge though, I would say a bit slower as Bovada
but by far more reliable than Merge)
*Player to Player Transfer
*The Network is definitely small, but there's a pretty good amount of action on medium and low stakes tables compared to recent DoylesRoom activity (6-10 tables usually). The major tourneys on the weekends can field 400+ players. Most of the tourneys during the day have less than 100 or even 50 players.
