Americas Cardroom To Host $5 Million Guaranteed Venom PKO Online Poker Tournament

ACR Looking To Create The Largest Progressive Knock Out Tournament Ever


Venom is returning to Americas Cardroom this October, and once again, online poker players will have a shot at a massive prize pool with the $5 million guarantee. The eventual winner of the $2,650 buy-in event will earn at least $1 million!

This edition of the Venom, however, will be played as a PKO main event, otherwise known as a progressive knock out tournament.

In a normal $10 knock out or bounty tournament, $5 would go to the prize pool and $5 would go to the bounty. Knocking out another player would result in $5 added to any prize you cash for.

In a $10 PKO tournament, $5 would go to the prize pool, and $5 goes to the bounty. However, when you knock someone out of the tournament, instead of getting the full $5, you get half that amount, or $2.50. The other $2.50 now gets added to your own bounty, making it now worth $7.50.

Should someone take you out, the process repeats itself. They’ll pocket $3.75 (half the current bounty), and the other $3.75 gets added to their head.

By the end of a tournament, a single player’s bounty could even be worth more than the remaining prize pool, creating a very exciting dynamic at the final table. Imagine what could be up for grabs in the $5 million Venom PKO!

The tournament features multiple starting flights.

Day 1A: Friday, Oct. 23
Day 1B: Sunday, Oct. 25
Day 1C: Friday, Oct. 30
