Aconcagua is a South American poker network with skins in every major South American country. The vast majority of the player pool is made up of loco South America recreationals who play soft and tilt hard. The main nationality you will run into at the tables is Brazilian and as anyone who has ever played a late night session on Pokerstars can attest Brazil is truly the donk capital of South America and possibly the whole world! In cash, the site offers the standard game types – NLH and PLO. Most the action is at the lower end of the stake spectrum, but you will see some bigger game running during busy hours. NLH features a progressive bad beat jackpot. Where Aconcagua really shines is its MTT events – you will find a good selection of MTTs with several different formats, bounty, rebuy etc as well as some good series and sats to live events. The MTT fields are as fisher heavy as a successful trawlers net and are mainly smaller fields (less than 100 players) which is great for guys looking for a low variance schedule. The stakes for MTTs are mainly low to mid stakes, with the occasional big buy-in events. Aconcagua also has Windfall, which is a fun format, similar to Spin and Goes with a random prize pool. As the site is South American the action is in full swing during the night time in Europe.

Traffic here is moderate, at peak times you will see a little over 1k connections to the site. The peak hours coincide with the busiest hours in Brazil, so that is late into the night for Europeans. You will find more than 20 tables up to NL50, around 10 tables for NL200 and occasional action up to NL1k, especially during weekends. For PLO lovers, the action is mainly at the lower levels, with around 10 tables available for PLO50 and lower and sporadic action above this.
