ACR Poker, the largest online poker site in America, has revealed that it will be hosting its biggest tournament to date this spring, from April 14 to May 1. The highly anticipated Venom tournament will feature a massive $12.5 million guaranteed prize pool, making it the largest in the tournament’s five-year history.
The $12.5 Million GTD Venom tournament will be an historic event for US players, offering live commentary from industry professionals. The Final Table of the tournament will be streamed live on ACR Poker’s official Twitch channel on May 1, with prominent poker personalities joining in to provide commentary.
The tournament will kick off on April 14 with the first of five Day 1 options. Day 2 will take place on April 29, followed by Day 3 on April 30. Participants who qualify for Day 2 are not permitted to join any other Day 1 flight, with no option to play an additional Day 1 after qualifying for a bigger stack.
The buy-in for the tournament is set at $2,650, but ACR Poker is also offering more affordable alternatives for players to secure a seat, including the Beast and Step tourneys and the Venom Fever satellites.
The winner of this year’s Venom tournament will walk away with a guaranteed prize of at least $1 million, with the event expected to create multiple millionaires. Participants will have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of last year’s champion Brandon Lulov, who earned close to $1,578,000 at the Final Table, alongside prominent names in the industry such as ACR Pro John Van Fleet and high-stakes pro player Chris Hunichen.
ACR Pro Chris Moneymaker has expressed excitement for the upcoming tournament, highlighting the $12.5 million prize pool and the various qualification opportunities available for players to participate. ACR Poker recently announced the eighth edition of its Venom PKO tournament earlier in the month.
