Online poker room Americas Cardroom is hosting a Venom event soon, providing players with an opportunity to compete for $5 million in prize money. The event has a buy-in of $2,650 and will provide the lucky winner with $1 million! This edition of the tournament will run in PKO format, which means there will be bounties on players heads.
Upping the Ante
Because Venom will be a PKO, or Progressive Knockout event, it will provide even more value for players. In a PKO event, a portion of the bounty on the player’s head goes to you if you knock them out and then a portion goes to your own bounty. This means that as you knockout players, you earn prize money and build a bounty.
The longer you remain in the tournament and the more players you knock out, the more extra cash you can earn. Because this event is so large and has a higher buy-in, the opportunity to earn bounty cash is massive. By the end of this event, it will be amazing to see just how much cash the top players have racked up from bounties.
The Venom event will have several starting flights, with Day 1A kicking off on October 23. On October 25, players can compete in Day 1B and on October 30, Day 1C takes place. On November 1, you have Day 1D then November 2 kicks off Day 2. Day 3 is set for November 3 and the final table will be set on November 4.
Win a Seat!
Like with any online poker event, there is an opportunity for you to earn a spot in the event via satellite. Americas Cardroom provides a ton of options for players now that they have just kicked off the Venom Fever satellite extravaganza on October 13 and will continue to offer the satellites through November 1st. Players can compete in satellites to earn a seat to the biggest PKO event in online poker history.
Satellites start at just $12, making it easy for players to compete. Each day up until the 1st, players will find opportunities to win a ticket. There are satellites with varying buy-ins and each day of the Venom PKO Fever with a certain amount of tickets up for grabs. Take this week for example, today, there are satellites with $30 + $2 buy-ins which offers two tickets guaranteed to the event.
Then you have a $280 + $10 satellite with a turbo format that also offers two tickets. Some events offer one ticket guaranteed while others have more on offer. Basically, it is best to look at the schedule and see what satellites meet your budget needs and which ones have more opportunity for you to earn a seat.
There is still plenty of time to try and qualify for a ticket to the event. Easily log in to Americas Cardroom and take part in a satellite in your free time. If you have the funds, the event can also be bought into directly.
