Argentina Online Poker Player Wins ACR's $10 Million Guaranteed Venom Event

'manuma29' Banks $1.17 Million In Americas Cardroom's Record Tournament


Americas Cardroom put an ambitious $10 million guarantee on their latest Venom online poker event, and it paid off with 4,017 entries over the course of five starting flights.

The final prize pool numbers came in at $10,042,500, making the tournament ACR’s biggest of all time. The record-breaking event came during the site’s 21st anniversary celebration, which will continue through October.

After eight days of action, it was Argentina’s ‘manuma29’ who dragged the last pot, scoring the Venom title and the $1,169,951 first-place prize.

Incredibly, ‘manuma29’ secured the win by making a royal flush on the last hand of heads-up play against runner-up ‘G26.’ All the money went in preflop with ‘G26’ holding AHeart Suit 8Club Suit against AClub Suit QClub Suit. The board ran out ADiamond Suit KClub Suit 10Club Suit JClub Suit ASpade Suit and ‘manuma29’ was crowned champion.

The final table also featured players from Brazil, India, and the United States. American poker pro Andrew Moreno earned $633,681 for finishing third, playing under the name ‘Amo4sho.’

Moreno is having a great year, having won a Venetian DeepStack event for $242,293 and finished runner-up at the Wynn Summer Classic for another $460,529. In 2021 he won the Wynn Millions for $1,460,106.

Stephen Sweatt took fourth as ‘KODA410,’ Colton Blomberg finished fifth as ‘CBALLBOY,’ and Anuj Yadav took seventh as ‘brockLesnar95.’

You can watch a replay of the final table on Twitch featuring commentary from ACR ambassadors Justin Kelly, Michael Loncar, and Chris Moneymaker.
