Venom Winner Took Home over $1 Million
There’s winning the lottery. And then there’s winning the $6 Million Venom at Americas Cardroom. Both come with feelings of absolute joy and disbelief. But if you ask the last two winners of the big poker tournament, winning the Venom is much sweeter.
That’s because winning the Venom takes more than just dumb luck. It’s takes smart skills, something that player: galodoido13 exhibited when he took down the most recent $6 Million Venom, earning $1,039,982 in prize money for his first-place finish.
$6 Million Venom details:
• Total prize money guaranteed: $6 million
• Final prize pool: $6,740,000
• Total entries: 2,696
• 1st place prize guaranteed: $1 Million
If the $6 Million Venom sounds familiar, it’s because it’s somewhat of a regularly occurring tournament at the US-facing online poker site. The last $5 Million Venom was held in the summer to great fanfare. Due to its immense success, ACR decided to hold the $6 Million Venom.
The multi-day tournament with four Day 1 options spanned about two weeks, concluding on December 11th. The next one isn’t far off as it was just announced that the next Venom will be held in June 2020, with another one to follow every 6 months.
If you want to play in it, they’re making it very easy. While the $2,650 buy-in might be a bit too much for some, there are Satellites, Step Tournaments, Skip Tournaments and Spin to Get IN games to help you secure a seat for much less.
