Americas Cardroom Guaranteeing $10 Million Again

Published on January 10th, 2022 1:42 pm EST

A tournament with a massive guarantee of $10M - The Venom.Last summer, Americas Cardroom guaranteed an eye-popping $10 million for their fifth edition of "The Venom".

The tournament ended up attracting a total of 3,930 entries, meaning that Americas Cardroom had to kick in a little under $200,000 to meet the guarantee.

Undeterred, the site is offering another $10 million guaranteed "Venom" tournament, which will be running later this month.

The site is promising the biggest online poker tournament open to US players in over ten years, so they are obviously confident about beating the numbers posted for the first $10 million guaranteed Venom event.


The buy-in for the event is $2,650, and there are four Day 1 flights:

Day 1A - Friday, January 21st, 1 pm ET
Day 1B - Sunday, January 23rd, 1 pm ET
Day 1C - Friday, January 28th, 1 pm ET
Day 1D - Sunday, January 30th, 1 pm ET

Day 2 will combine the remaining players from all four opening day flights and will get underway on Monday, January 31st at 1 pm ET. ACR figures that Day 2 will have around 11 hours of play.

Day 3 will get underway at 1 pm ET on Tuesday, February 1st, where the action will play down to the final table.

Finally, Day 4 will get underway on Wednesday, February 2nd (5 pm ET), and will play down to a winner.


People are able to enter multiple Day 1s, with their largest stack won continuing to Day 2. Stacks can not be combined.

Deal-making is allowed at the final table, though the first-place winner must receive a minimum of $1,000,000.

Players can buy directly into the event, or they can qualify via "Venom Fever", "Step and Skip tournaments" or "Venom Blitz Satellites".

These events are currently running on the site.


ACR claims that due to the high number of seats available via satellites, "this may very well be the softest tourney of this magnitude in the history of online poker".

Will "The Venom" end up topping the $10 million guarantee this time around?
