By Bob Garcia
You know that excited feeling you get when you’re about a watch a heavyweight title fight or a bone-crunching MMA battle? Well, that’s how online poker players around the world are feeling right now.
Americas Cardroom’s $5 Million GTD Venom PKO tourney has already had two Day 1’s, with the last two coming this Friday, October 30th and Sunday, November 1st.
And the huge news is that we’re on pace to see the prize pool surpass $6 Million! If you want to get even more pumped, check out our YouTube video here. Or take a look at this recent tweet from a poker player called @IT5PAYDAY:
We don’t like to brag (ok, maybe we do a little!), but this is the only multi-day PKO ever of its size. The $5 Million guarantee also easily makes it the biggest PKO in the history of poker, online or land-based.
As a comparison, Poker Stars recently ran a $2.5 Million guaranteed PKO that finished with a $2.79 Million prize pool. Those numbers are nothing to sneeze at, but our final numbers are going to more than double that.
You’re probably wondering how you can get into this record-breaking tourney and go for the minimum $1 Million top prize. Sure, you can shell out $2,650 for a ticket right now, or you can win your way in for far less through our Venom Fever satellites.
There are 88 guaranteed seats from Thursday, October 28th through Sunday, November 1st via Venom Fever. And with satellite costs starting at just $12, you would be crazy not to take a shot to qualify.
The current $5 Million Venom PKO leader is ‘whitegold333’ with just over 6.3 million chips. The biggest bounty belongs to ‘GZ401’ with over $9,000. Imagine yourself going for bounties that are sure to reach tens of thousands of dollars in the latter stages of the tourney!
If you’re one of the surviving Day 1 players, you’ll advance to Day 2 on Monday. Day 3 is then on Tuesday and the final table on Wednesday, which will be broadcast live on our Twitch channel.
