TRT-VITOR Takes Down Americas Cardroom's Venom Online Poker Tournament For $1.4 Million

Venom Draws Massive Field To Beat $7 Million Guarantee


Americas Cardroom brought back Venom this summer, increasing the guarantee to a massive $7 million as part of the ongoing OSS Cub3d online poker tournament series.

The lofty expectations were justified when a whopping 3,872 entries were made in the $2,650 buy-in event, shooting past the guarantee for a total prize pool of $9,680,000.

The tournament featured four starting flights, the first of which began on July 24. The field combined on Aug. 3, and played three more days before determining a champion.

The final table featured players from all over the world, including the United Kingdom, Croatia, Portugal, Austria, Mexico, and the United States.

The winner was slated to receive more than $1.5 million, but a deal made during heads-up play secured a little more money for the two competitors.

In the end, it came down to a bit of a cooler. On a flop of 7Diamond Suit 6Heart Suit 3Heart Suit, forrestranfar got the rest of his stack in holding AHeart Suit 5Heart Suit against the KHeart Suit KDiamond Suit of TRT-Vitor.

Despite having the overpair, TRT-Vitor was still vulnerable to forrestranfar’s nut flush draw, straight draw, and overcard. In fact, according to the Card Player Poker Odds Calculator, the draw was actually a slight favorite at just over 52 percent.

The turn and river bricked out with the 10Spade Suit and JSpade Suit, however, and the title went to TRT-Vitor.

Here is a look at the final table payouts.

Place Player Name Payout
1 TRT-Vitor $1,394,821*
