$5 Million Venom PKO tournament returns from September 17th to 29th
By Bob Garcia
It’s time to put your killer instincts to the test. We’re bringing back online poker’s biggest Progressive Knock Out tournament on Friday, September 17th. Naturally, we’re referring to the multi-day $5 Million Venom PKO.
If the $5 Million Venom PKO doesn’t ring a bell, we’ve actually hosted this ferocious tournament twice before. Our first Venom PKO, which took place in November 2020, finished with a massive $6,777,500 prize pool. ‘Pinguinachica’ won the inaugural tourney and walked away with $477,815 in regular prize money plus $273,253 more in bounties!
Our second $5 Million Venom PKO took place this past May and had a whopping $7,160,000 prize pool. ‘Rydo’ wiped the floor with his opponents, taking home $501,916 in regular prize money plus $236,218 in bounties.
If you’re new to the world of PKOs, they’re basically bounty tournaments on steroids. When you enter the Venom PKO, half of your buy-in goes towards the prize pool and the other half funds your starting bounty. Whenever you knock someone out of the tournament, you win half their bounty and the other half goes on your head. In other words, the bounties swell rapidly as the tourney goes on.
Given the large player pool of the Venom PKO, it’s possible to clean up on bounties alone, even if you don’t reach the final table. As the tournament goes deep, a single knockout punch could land you tens of thousands of dollars!
The $5 Million Venom PKO costs $2,650 to enter, runs September 17th to 29th and has four Day 1 options. The other Day 1 flights are on September 19th, 24th, and 26th. Day 2 is on September 27th, Day 3 in on September 28th, and the final table takes place on Wednesday, September 29th.
If the $2,650 looks steep, there’s no need to throw in the towel just yet. You can get your seat for next to nothing by taking advantage of Skips and Venom Blitz Satellites. We’re also running Freerolls and Steps starting at $0. And don’t forget about Venom Fever, where we’ll be awarding hundreds of Venom seats starting September 3rd.
