Players can buy in directly for $2,650 or take part in one of the many Venom Fever satellites running until April 30th. The direct buy-ins for the satellites start at $33 and there are twelve Mega Satellites scheduled that are free to enter.

The prior iteration of the Venom PKO ran just a few months ago, with significant payouts and bounties up for grabs at the final table. ‘Amygdaluss’ outlasted the field and took home the top prize of $483,630 plus an additional $342,902 in bounties. America’s Cardroom live streamed the final table, with commentary from Michael Loncar, Justin Kelly, and Ebony Kenney. Thankfully, for those that missed the live run, there’s a highlight reel with all the action.

ACR Team Pro, Chris Moneymaker said, “This latest Venom PKO edition is set to be huge once again, especially since the last one in November smashed the $5 Million guarantee with a $6,860,000 prize pool. This tourney is for everyone thanks to ACR giving players so many options to earn their Venom seat for pennies on the dollar.”

The Venom PKO leads players right into the America’s Cardroom Online Super Series. The OSS will run from May 7th to 29th with a record $40 million guaranteed across the series.
