It’s bounty hunting season on ACR Poker as the Venom PKO restarts later today with Day 2 action. The tournament’s four Day 1s generated a field of 2,839 entrants to create a prize pool of $7,097,500–smashing the $5,000,000 guarantee set by ACR Poker.

The impressive turnout for the event comes amidst a period of turbulence for the provider as they address ongoing security concerns on the site.

The Venom PKO offers players a shot at massive cashes and eye-watering bounties. Already, the bounties are piling up as only 395 players made the cut to advance to Day 2. The returning players aren’t quite in the money just yet, but with 357 places paid they aren’t far off either.

The minimum cash will net players $2,384, but all of them will have their eyes on the $416,787 for first place–plus, all the bounties won on the way there.

There are several notable names still in the hunt, including ACR Stormer Mark Rubbathan, Chance Kornuth, ACR Poker Team Pro Drew Gonzalez, WPT Global Ambassador Jonathan Van Fleet, and ACR Team Pro Monika Zukowicz.

Watch all the Day 2 action live

Both Rubbathan and Gonzalez plan to stream their Day 2 journeys on their respective Twitch channels, so you can watch all the action as it goes down today.

The Venom PKO Day 2 action resumes today at 1:05pm ET and Day 3 action will commence at the same time tomorrow, January 30th. The final table will play out Wednesday, January 31st starting at 4:05pm ET, with all the action streaming live on ACR Poker’s Twitch channel.
