ACR Offers Poker Pros a Shot at Challenging Chris Moneymaker Himself

Moneymaker commented on the upcoming promotion, calling it a “great opportunity for poker players to step up their game”

Just after uncovering the $2 Million Vegas Fast Track Series, poker specialist ACR Poker also announced a new promotion that would allow two fans to face the legend Chris Moneymaker himself.

A former WSOP champion and current ACR pro, Moneymaker is a professional poker player whose name has come to be associated with ACR Poker.

Starting this weekend, ACR Poker players can qualify for a chance to challenge Moneymaker online and win an exclusive Vegas experience, just in time for ACR Poker’s summer series.

To qualify, players would need to join one of the four $8.60 multi-table tournaments set to take place on June 8, 9 15 and 16. The top two players from each MTT will enter a final 8-handed Sit & Go on June 17.

The best two players from the Sit & Go final will then get the chance to face Moneymaker himself for a shot at winning an unparalleled Moneymaker Vegas Experience. The experience will include a 14-night stay in Las Vegas, a $10,000 buy-in to the World Series $10K Main Event and a variety of Vegas-based activities.

Winners will be featured in ACR Media alongside ACR Pros and will also get to participate in an ACR Pros meet-up game with a $2,500 stake.

Moneymaker Will Show Players What Being a Pro Is About

The two people who would eventually face Moneymaker need to keep a number of conditions in mind. First of all, they must livestream their game against Moneymaker. If they win, they will be required to wear ACR gear, such as patches or other merchandise while in Vegas. In addition, they cannot transfer the prize or exchange it for cash. Winners also need to be available for PR and content recording.

The heads-up game will be streamed on ACR Poker’s official Twitch channel on June 18.

Moneymaker commented on the upcoming promotion, calling it a “great opportunity for poker players to step up their game.” He said that he is looking forward to welcoming the winners to Sin City and allowing them to see what being an ACR Pro is all about.

 I’m also excited to see who has what it takes to beat me in a heads-up battle!

For those who don’t get to face Moneymaker in a game, ACR Poker would still be able to qualify for a seat at the World Series $10K Main Event through one of the many satellite events.
