KyleAnderson17 qualifies for Venom for $0, has great experience
By Bob Garcia
The $7 Million GTD Venom is in the books. You probably already know about the huge $9,680,000 prize pool. That allowed us to crown two $1 Million winners. Player TRT-Vitor finished in 1st for a $1,394,821 payday and FORRESTRANFAR got 2nd for $1,282,666. There was a heads-up deal made between the two.
But what about some of the more unheralded stories? After all, there were 3,872 total entrants and almost all of them have a story to tell.
‘KyleAnderson17’ is one of those players. His journey into the Venom started by securing his $2,650 ticket. Now we told our players about all the different ways to qualify for less like satellites, mega satellites and Cyclones. The latter started at just 11 cents, but another way was even cheaper.
That’s right. ‘KyleAnderson17’ made his way into the Venom (and that chance to be a millionaire) for nothing. That’s because he qualified via a Freeroll. See how here.
Now, he didn’t make the final table, but he did advance all the way to 81st place, taking home a nice $15,488. He also live-streamed his tournament play and was very excited about getting his follower count up to 606.
Here’s a quote from his Twitter account at https://twitter.com/KyleAAAnderson:
“Wow, just wow, I don’t have any words, I’ll try to be quick, thank you all so much, my biggest cash of $15,488 usd from a freeroll ticket, this was the best night of my life, you guys helped make it possible, we came 81, can’t be sad for long, I’m so grateful.”
We’re happy to have made his Venom experience a great one and hope everyone else enjoyed playing just as much.
