The Cage

poker promo

Guard your chips and protect your stack because the blood is about to hit the felt.

We’re dropping you into The Cage for the most epic poker experience you’ve ever been a part of. This high-stakes cash game with a time-based tournament format is all-out war!

We’ll pre-warn you. The Cage isn’t for the faint of heart, nor is it for those who are afraid to sweat. It’s for poker players who are passionate about winning and willing to do damage at the tables in ways most players only dream of.

3 hours to dropkick your way to victory

The Cage is a multi-table time-based cash game with a $5,000+100 buy-in(satellites from as low as $1.50 are available). The tournament ends as soon as the clock hits 3 hours of play, regardless of how many players are left standing.

Your buy-in gets you 5,000 in chips and here’s the deal. Those chips have a real dollar value. At the end of the 3-hour tournament, we’ll convert your chip stack to real cash. So if you’ve got 50,000 in chips left, we’ll load your account with $50,000 in cash.

The Cage Highlights

  • 3-hour cash game with multi-table tournament format
  • The Cage ends as soon as 3 hours are up, regardless of how many players are left standing
  • 6-max tables
  • Starting stack of 5,000
  • Chips have a real dollar value
  • At the end of the tournament, your chip stack is converted to real cash and loaded into your account
  • You’ll receive your winnings directly into your bank account via a free bank wire from Shark Tank

We Turn Up the Heat by Increasing the Blinds Every Hour

The Cage is split into three levels, with each hour getting more intense. Here’s the breakdown of how the blinds increase throughout the event:

  • Hour 1 with $10/$20 blinds and $2 antes
  • Hour 2 with $25/$50 blinds and $5 antes
  • Hour 3 with $50/$100 blinds and $10 antes

Battle against legends

When you step into The Cage, you won’t just go to battle against regular poker players. You’ll go fist-to-fist against some of the biggest poker heavyweights. The Cage is attracting the who’s who of online poker, so check back often to see who else is stepping into the ring.

$1.50 gets you 5,000 in chips

The Cage comes with a $5,000+100buy-in, but you can sucker punch your way to a seat for just $1.50. Look for a satellite and win your way into the tournament for next to nothing. The event is scheduled at 8:00pm EST on October 8th

Sit & Crush

poker promo

Why should cash game players have all the fun?

We are pleased to announce the world’s first bi-weekly progressive Sit & Go race! At absolutely no extra cost, players can earn thousands of dollars in cash PLUS free tournament entries just by playing Sit & Go and On Demand tournaments.

Sit & Go players deserve to get in on the action. That’s why Shark Room is digging deep into its pockets and redistributing a part of all Sit & Go fees back to our players. 

Here’s how it works:

  1. Register for any of our “Sit & Go” or “On Demand” tournaments. To find one, just look for the Sit & Go tab.
  2. Earn points just by playing Sit & Go’s. It makes no difference if you win or lose the tournament. No matter what, you’ll automatically be ranked on our leaderboard.
  3. Check your progress by clicking on the “Sit & Crush” logo in the poker client lobby and see your rank on the leaderboard, points and other important information.
  4. Win thousands in cold, hard cash and tournament entries.

Players can earn points toward their bi-weekly leaderboard totals simply by playing in any Sit & Go tournament*. The more you play, the more points you earn, and the higher you’ll rank on the Sit & Go leaderboard. See our Earning Points tab.

The players who rank highest at the end of each 2-week race will win thousands of dollars PLUS tournament entries and will be paid according to their overall finish.

Each month features two leaderboard competitions:

  • From the 1st of the month to the 15th
  • From the 16th of the month to the last day of the month.

Here’s the best part:  the cash leaderboard gets fuelled at absolutely no extra cost to the player. Each time a player sits down at a Sit & Go, he pays his normal fee — that’s all.

For example, a 9 handed $10+1 Sit & Go (the $1 would be the fee), we will take $0.25 out of the normal tournament fee and put it into the Sit & Crush jackpot.  In this case of a 9 handed Sit & Go, $2.25 will go towards the race  ($0.25 x 9 = $2.25), 70% is then contributed towards the Cash Race and 30% is contributed to the Tournament Race. In the previous example $1.575 would go to the Cash Race and $0.675 to the tournament race.

There is no end to how big the jackpots can grow!  The more players play, the higher the prizes climb and the more spots that get paid.  Every Sit & Go on the site is fuelling this race!*


Everybody loves a great deal so why not get twice the value for your Sit & Go play during the Sit & Crush Happy Hours! Starting Monday, June 2nd, we will be adding Happy Hours into the mix so you can earn double the points by playing the same amount as you usually do during these scheduled hours.

Here's something to say cheers to. With Happy Hours, you'll earn double points towards our Sit & Crush leaderboard. So grind the tables and climb to the top faster than ever.


Mondays: 4:00pm ET to 7:00pm ET
Tuesdays: 4:00pm ET to 7:00pm ET
Fridays: 4:00pm ET to 7:00pm ET

Be sure to play as many Sit & Go's as possible during the Happy Hours, to ensure you're primed to maximize your full Sit & Crush points earning potential.

You can track your progress to see just how beneficial playing during Happy Hours really is by tracking your progress on the leader board before and after you play. You can view your ongoing points tally by clicking on the 'Sit & Crush' tab in the top right hand corner of the lobby.

Please note that Sit & Crush Happy Hours are valid only for the Sit & Crush promotion and are not valid for other points accumulation promotions such as 'The Beast'. As always, heads up tables are excluded from the Sit & Crush promotion.



Get ready to Sit & Crush your way to an explosion of cash. Beginning July 19th, we’re dropping an extra $5,000 per week onto the Sit & Crush prize pool, straight from our pockets.


Just keep playing Sit & Go tournaments and you’ll automatically compete for a spot on the Sit & Crush leaderboard.

You don’t have to do anything special to compete for the extra cash. We’ll drop the extra $5,000 onto the cash leaderboard automatically at the beginning of the competition.

Remember, it doesn’t cost anything extra to be a part of Sit & Crush. By playing Sit & Go and On-Demand tourneys, a portion of the tourney fee automatically goes to the Sit & Crush prize pool.

So hit the tables hard to crush even more cash.
