The number one US-facing poker site, Americas Cardroom (ACR), has been putting together a unique series of poker events each year that take poker to a whole new level.  The Cage Live is held in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica and combine everyone’s favorite game with an awesome party in one of the most popular tourist destinations around.

The Cage Live gives all players the ability to take home everything they earn after the two-day event.  Starting with $5,000 in chips, by the time the four levels of action are done, whatever’s in your stack is yours to keep.  Things are even hotter this year with ACR’s Double Buy Option.  To learn more about the Cage Live and all the excitement, check out


The Cage Live isn’t just about poker.  It’s about meeting the ACR people that make the fun happen with a behind-the-scenes tour and living it up among the palm trees and beaches of Costa Rica.  Dan Stavila, who went to Costa Rica for the July Cage Live event, said in an interview, “My name’s Dan Stavila and I finished with $42,115 in chips so it’s been a great day to say the least.  It feels amazing … It’s just been a great experience! … It’s been nice to come out here to Costa Rica.”
