Americas Cardroom Trumpets Its GTD Venom Tourney

Americas Cardroom announces the starting of GTD Venom Tourney, the famous multi-day poker tournament.

FREMONT, CA: Americas Cardroom is outdoing itself with the largest tourney in its decades-long history. The US-facing online poker site runs an $8 Million GTD Venom, with a $1 Million minimum top prize, from January 22nd to February 3rd, 2021. The famous multi-day poker tournament is back with the biggest guarantee in its history. The company is excited to kick the year off by making at least one millionaire.

The $8 Million Venom has four Day 1 option and a $2,650 direct buy-in. However, those without that bankroll at their disposal are still in luck. Americas Cardroom is releasing the Venom floodgates, enabling players to qualify through Steps, Skips, Megas, and Venom Fever. The latter of which will feature hundreds of satellites leading up to the tournament. Players can secure a seat through Venom Blitz Steps (also known as Cyclones). Starting at just 11 cents, players can enter at any level and move up to the next one by earning 5,000 chips. By completing the 9th level, players will secure their $2,650 seat.

While $8 million is guaranteed, that number should be seamlessly surpassed. The last Hold'em Venom tourney was held in August and featured $7 million in guaranteed prize money. But that far exceeded expectations, with a final prize pool of $9,680,000. It was the first Venom where the champ ($1,542,024) and 2nd place finisher ($1,135,464) walked away as millionaires. Americas Cardroom has also announced that they're planning to hold four Venoms in 2021. The schedule will include two Hold'em Venoms and two Venom PKOs.

Americas Cardroom joined the Winning Poker Network in 2011. The Winning Poker Network has been dealing with cards since 2001 and is one of the industry's most trusted names. Rated first place for payment processing and cashout reliability repeatedly over the last few years, Americas Cardroom offers outstanding customer service and a friendly environment for all poker players worldwide.
