ACR Venom Still Open as OSS Cub3d Begins
It is a big weekend for Americas Cardroom, the flagship online poker site on the Winning Poker Network.
On Sunday, July 21, the final starting day of the Venom online tournament will begin, and the hope is that the final numbers will put the prize pool well beyond the $5 million guarantee.
On the same day, the Online Super Series (OSS) Cub3d returns with more than $13 million in guarantees across 160 total tournaments. The series kicks off the first of its three included mini-series with the Mini Online Super Series (MOSS) on Sunday and set to run through July 28, at which point the OSS takes over.
And with Venom and OSS both in action on July 21, it will be a busy day for online poker players.
Still Time to Get into Venom
The original announcement for the Venom tournament dates back to January 2019, but promotions for it increased as the event neared. The $2,650 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament aimed to be the largest online poker tournament ever hosted by an offshore US-faced poker site. And the $5 million guarantee was going to help it get there.
Two starting days were originally planned for the Venom, but another was eventually added.
Action kicked off on Sunday, July 14 with the first of three starting flights, followed by another on Tuesday, July 16. These were the results thus far:
Prize pool: $1,962,500
Surviving players: 117
Chip leader: ACR pro Thomas “HolyCannuli” Cannuli with 9,641,417 chips
Prize pool: $1,097,500
Surviving players: 52
Chip leader: “pro.moe92” with 7,834,254 chips
That leaves one more starting day, which is tomorrow (Sunday, July 21). Play begins at 1pm ET. And satellites will be running on ACR up until the start of the action.
As it stands, the tournament needs 776 players to register on Day 1C to meet the guarantee. With all of the satellites and promotion going in the run-up to the tournament, it seems likely that Americas Cardroom will meet its goal.
After the prize pool is set and Day 1C ends, the players surviving with chips will then adhere to the following schedule:
Day 2: Monday, July 22 at 1pm ET to play 12 hours or down to final 8 players
Day 3: Tuesday, July 23 at 1pm ET to play down to final 8 IF NEEDED
Day 4: Wednesday, July 24 at 5pm ET to play for a winner
Ok, I'm not much for buying RT’s but to raise awareness on The Venom this weekend if I can get 1k RT’s between now and Sunday's close of late reg I will put up the next one end of November with 6 million guaranteed on Monday #lovepoker
