Definition of ACR Sunday Venom

America's Cardroom, which was established in 2001, has a regular Sunday tournament that is called the Sunday Venom, or "Venom" for short.

In most weeks, the "Venom" has a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million, making it one of the biggest regular online poker tournaments.

From time to time, America's Cardroom will increase the size of their Venom guarantee. They did this in July of 2019, as they increased the size of the guarantee for the "Venom" tournament to $5 million and had multiple starting flights.

This tournament was a rousing success, as the guarantee was smashed by more than $1.3 million.


The Sunday Venom was previously known as the Million Dollar Encore. ACR made the decision to remain the tournament in the second half of 2018.

The Sunday Venom has a buy-in of $2,650, though they offer a large variety of freerolls and satellites so that players with smaller bankrolls have a chance of playing as well.


The first place prize for the weekly Venom is usually $200,000, though the $5 million Venom had a first place prize of $1 million.
