21st Anniversary VENOM on ACR Promises $10million Prizepool

July 9, 2022
Andrew Burnett

Americas Cardroom have listed 10 reasons to ensure you mark down the 21st Anniversary edition of the ever-popular ACR VENOM in your daily diary this month – and there are at least 10 million more reasons, all of them $$$!

It’s rare to have such a massive guarantee, but when the inaugural VENOM hit the Guinness Book of Records in 2019 with a $5million GTD prizefund, it was only ever going to get bigger...and better!

This summer’s event kicks off on July 21st, with the first of four opening Day1 flights with a Thursday/Sunday combo on July 21st,24th, 28th and 31st giving you plenty of opportunity to get in it to win it.

Soft field, massive prizes!

Described by ACR themselves as “the softest tourney of this magnitude in the history of online poker”, it’s a rec fest with decidedly non-rec prizes, as seen in the most recent running...

How to Enter

As with all VENOM events, you can win your way to a $2650 seat for as little as, well...zero outlay!

Mega Satellites, Steps and Skips, and Blitz Satellites all allow you to fight your way to the main event...here’s the lowdown!

Venom Fever Freeroll MEGAs

Running almost daily from Friday, July 8th through Sunday, July 31st MEGAs will cost you exactly $0.00 to enter, the freeroll satellites guaranteeing 10 seats to a Super Satellite.

Fight your way through the Super Satellite to bag one of 10 seats in the Mega Satellite and you can take home a $2,650 Venom seat and your ticket to life-changing cash.

Step and Skip

Bankroll issues are no problem with these beauties, again a $0.00 starting point allowing you to ladder your way to VENOM success. That’s the “Step” part of things, and if you have some spare cash you can “Skip” through as many of the 9 levels as you like, whatever the easiest way to the $2650 ticket is!

Available 24/7, the On Demand tournaments kick off as soon as there are enough players entered, which with $10million on the horizon shouldn’t take long at all!

VENOM Blitz satellites

These aren’t free, but starting at just $0.11 they may as well be!

Offering potentially unlimited VENOM seats, the idea of Blitz poker is that you run up your chip stack to 5000 and you’ve bagged a seat! Don’t like your hand? Fold and instantly find yourself in a new hand.

Fast and furious and fun, and if you find yourself close but unable to get across the winning line, you can even pay the difference to secure your seat!

Stake or be staked!

Introduced last time out, the Staking feature allows you to buy a piece of another player’s action, giving you a fun sweat with a potential payday, or selling some of your own action to lower the cost and variance of playing.

With all staking 100% backed by WPN there’s no risk to yourself, and if you’re new to the staking game you can check out all the details here.

There’s not long to go now until the VENOM is upon us, so check out the schedule below and choose your starting day...and good luck at the ACR VENOM tables!!
