San Jose, Costa Rica – November 2, 2012 – It’s quite fitting that the last day of October was Halloween because The Beast was an absolute monster, especially for one online poker player. MamaCoolJ has pocketed a cool $12,230 in extra cash, just for playing poker in October. The online poker player earned the money for taming The Beast at Americas Cardroom. It also appears that he is on good track to win back to back titles as he is already leading November’s Leaderboard.

“This has been an epic four months at Americas Cardroom and we’re thrilled to hand out another $121,397.15 in cash and tournament prizes to our October winners,” stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “We’ve awarded close to $600,000 in cash and tournament prizes, including trips to Punta Cana and cold hard cash to over 2,500 players. $431,993.93 of our total payouts have been given away in cash alone and $165,421 in tournament entries. And even though the year is almost over, we’re just getting started.”

MamaCoolJ took the top spot in October’s competition, earning 91,457.59 points as he played an impressive 250,000+ online poker hands. That’s 11,129 more points than second place finisher, rustyrupert9, who earned 80,328.47 points. Rounding out the top three was Ac0428 with 69,306.29 points.

539 poker players shared in The Beast’s $121,397.15 combined cash and tournament prize pool for October. The prize pool included $91,752.15 in cash, spread among the top 367 players, and another $29,645 in seats to Americas Cardroom’s signature $50k Guaranteed Beast Tournament, spread among a total of 539 online poker players.

For those that want to follow up on MamaCoolJ’s performance they can do so live by going to While he grinds in The Beast, he is also part of the live streaming action on The Beast Live, which features 5 of the biggest cash game grinders at Americas Cardroom.

Five online poker players have signed up to tame ‘The Beast’ Live in November including ACR’s Poker Pro Dusty “Leatherass9” Schmidt and former winner of the October competition MamaCoolJ. Joining the list are also some well known grinders at Americas Cardroom “Chipotle247”, “G00glem3” and “JohnWallin”.
