Thomas Cannuli aims for 3 Venom tickets in 3 months — with $0 to his name

Big challenge at Americas Cardroom. ACR Pro Thomas Cannuli is on the hunt for three $2,650 tickets to the $5 Million Venom. And he’s given himself three months to do it.

Can’t be that hard, right? After all, anyone can enter a $600+30.01 On Demand tourney and get a seat rather quickly, right?

Not this time. Cannuli has to win his three seats starting with NO BANKROLL at all. That means his only options are playing Venom Step tournaments or Venom branded tourneys. He can’t play other freerolls to build his bankroll.

If Cannuli does win a ticket, he can sell it in our Venom Ticket Marketplace at the current market value and reinvest whatever he makes for other Venom Step qualifiers. But because he has to start with a $0 bankroll, his only option right now is our Step 1 Venom tourneys, which are $0.

In all, Cannuli is aiming to win almost $8,000 worth of Venom seats starting with nada. Can he do it? We’ll keep you posted right here on our blog.

Never heard of the $5 Million Venom? It’s the biggest online poker tournament in Americas Cardroom history. And with $5 million guaranteed, including $1 million for first place, it’s the biggest online poker tournament ever from a US-facing site. Get your seat.
