Venom Tournament Back at Americas Cardroom

Every year, online poker players look forward to events taking place at their favorite poker platforms. Providers often schedule the same tournament or series at the same time each year so players will continue to return to play at their site. With every New Year, players know that poker rooms will be on top of their game, offering new and exciting options to get players ready for a quality year of gaming. At Americas Cardroom, the site is bringing back its Venom event this month, featuring $8 million total prize money.

Venom Details

This month, Americas Cardroom is bringing back Venom, offering a ton of ways to earn a seat to the event. The tournament has a buy-in of $2,650 and will feature four starting flights. Players will compete for a total of four days before a winner will be named.

Of course, most people don’t have a few thousand dollars lying around to play in a poker tournament. Because of this, Americas Cardoom is offering players a way to win a seat. Satellites and qualifiers will run often at a much lower price point to help players get in on the action.

Venom Blitz Steps is a perfect way to compete for a seat. The fast-paced satellites start at a super low $0.11. Work your way up the steps to try and win a seat. You can also compete in daily freerolls and earn step tickets for free. The site offers seven daily freerolls in total. If you make it all the way to level nine of the steps challenge and win, then you earn a ticket to the event.

Yet another option is Venom Fever. Americas Cardroom has hundreds of satellite seats up for grabs with this option. Buy-ins are relatively low at $30. Players can compete for a ticket to Venom around four times a day in this manner.

Venom will begin on January 22 and play through February 3.

Successful Event

Every time Americas Cardroom hosts Venom, it is a successful event. The last time that Venom took place was in August. The online poker room offered up a slightly smaller prize pool at the time of $7 million.

By the end, the total number of players competing was 3,872. This created a massive prize pool of more than $9.6 million! By the time the event was over, the first place winner scored a prize of over $1.5 million.

It is expected that this time around will be just as successful. Plus, there are plenty of ways to earn a seat. The site might actually see the prize pool surpass its predecessor and reach the $10 million mark. Players are competing at the virtual felt now more than ever due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As players want to stay home and avoid contracting the virus, they compete in such events as Venom.

We shall see in just a few weeks how successful the Venom tournament is and if enough players will compete to meet the $8 million guaranteed prize pool and possibly surpass it! There is still plenty of time to compete for a seat to the big event before it starts, so begin by visiting Americas Cardroom!
