Another one for the record books. Americas Cardroom’s $6 Million Venom ended last night in spectacular fashion with a record-setting $6,740,000 prize pool — blowing way past the $6 Million that was guaranteed. Online poker player ‘galodoido13’ was the winner, earning $1,039,982.
“Our players drove us to this, and we couldn’t be more excited about what has transpired,” stated ACR spokesperson Michael Harris. “We made another millionaire in a matter of months. And we can’t wait to do it again next year.”
The $6 Million Venom was the US-facing site’s biggest tournament ever. It spanned two weeks, with four Day 1 options to choose from and players moving through Day 2 and 3, and onto Wednesday night’s final table.
With 2,696 total entrants, the final prize pool shot up to a record-setting $6,740,000. The winner was guaranteed $1 Million, just like during the $5 Million Venom this past summer which had a $6,382,500 prize pool.
The $6 Million Venom featured a $2,650 buy-in, but Americas Cardroom ran a slew of Satellites, Mega Satellites, Steps, and Skips to help players secure a seat for pennies on the dollar.
While galodoido13 earned the greatest sum for his performance, the final table featured multiple 6-figure winners alongside him, including Saranga in 2nd ($746,118), gillobono in 3rd ($553,354), ZackThornton in 4th ($363,960), Crusher1991 in 5th ($234,552), mozart528 in 6th ($155,694), and SebTozzi in 7th ($109,188).
Those who missed the boat on the $6 Million Venom need not worry. Americas Cardroom plans to host one every 6 months, with the next slated for June 2020. For more info on the $6 Million Venom, Click Here
