$10 Million Guaranteed Venom Heads to ACR
Americas Cardroom is the online poker site to be at this January thanks to a massive event taking place. The $10 million guaranteed Venom hits Americas Cardroom on January 21, although satellites are running right now.
The $10 million guaranteed Venom is Americas Cardroom’s biggest-ever tournament. Two Venom tournaments ran in 2021, and both awarded huge prizes. The tournament came with an $8 million guaranteed prize pool in February. Some 3,774 players bought into the $2,650 buy-in event and Roman “PORKNOMAR” Kropmanns outlasted them all. The Brazilian champion defeated his fellow countryman Yuri “SmashedAvacado” Martins heads-up, and scooped $1,113,330. Martins walked away with an $849,150 consolation prize.
Americas Cardroom ran the Venom in August 2021, and increased the guarantee to $10 million. It fell short after 3,930 players bought in and created a $9,825,000 prize pool. This marked the first time a Venom overlaid. Everyone at the eight-handed final table won at least six figures, such was the size of the pot. However, the top two finishers became millionaires! “BabyBowser” netting $1,514,000.

Hundreds of Satellites
Americas Cardroom is under no illusion that the $2,650 buy-in for the $10 million guaranteed Venom is massive. Few players following proper bankroll management are bankrolled for this tournament. This is why the online poker giant is hosting hundreds of cut-price satellites running around the clock.
Venom Blitz Steps, formerly known as Cyclones, start at only $0.11, meaning they are accessible by all. They are lightning-fast and super-exciting, but also potentially lucrative.
Venom On Demand Step and Skip tournaments are another way into the $10 million guaranteed Venom. These start as low as $0.00 and feature nine buy-in levels. Buy into whichever level you feel comfortable in, and win your way into this mega tournament.
Satellites called Venom Fever are the more traditional satellite tournaments. They come with a variety of buy-ins from $0 up to $280. More than 750 seats are guaranteed via this route, so they are worth hitting up.
Sell Your Action
It is possible to sell your $10 million guaranteed Venom action via the in-built staking software in addition to winning your way into it via satellites. Click the staking button in the lobby and decide how much action you want to sell. It is possible to sell between 1% and 90% of your action for free.
Americas Cardroom takes care of all the payments should you reach the money places. Furthermore, the software allows you to buy pieces of other players, too. See a name who you are familiar with and who you believe will excel in the event? See if they are selling any action and buy a piece of them!
It does not matter how you get into the $10 million guaranteed Venom. Playing it is all that matters.
