$10 Million Venom Kicks Off Tomorrow
20 Jan

Tomorrow marks the start of the latest edition of ACR’s Venom tournament. With a $10 million guarantee, this will be the biggest one yet with all of the players fighting to claim the massive seven-figure prize.

Four Day 1 starting flights should give all players the chance to find time to fight for life-changing money.

Bigger and Better

The buy-in might be a mighty $2,650 but this is still an event for players of all standards. ACR always gears the qualification process to allow small-stakes players to battle for their poker dreams.

The variety of satellites on offer gives anybody a chance of at least getting into the Main Event where they will square up against some of the game’s best. Players can qualify with an investment of literally only cents.

Day 1A starts tomorrow but players still have until January 30 to qualify for Day 1D, the final leg into Day 2.

Venom Fever

Venom Fever MEGA Satellites are the simplest way to qualify for the $10 million Venom between now and next Sunday

The three-step process promises cheap entry for 750 players if they prefer not to buy-in directly to the Main Event or even one of the later qualifying steps.

Simply enter one of the freeroll events and win one of 10 tickets to move onto the Super Satellite. There another 10 tickets will be up for grabs to play in a MEGA Satellite where entry into the Venom is the prize.

Step and Skip Tournaments

The Step tournaments are a nine-step Step series that allows players to jump in at any level they wish. From $0 to $850, the choice is yours.

At least two $10 million Venom tickets will be won in every Step 9 game.

The Skip tournaments are only played across four steps, but for added excitement there is always the possibility of jumping up more than one level with the top level paying out Venom Main Event tickets.

Venom Blitz Satellites

Those players who want to be able to jump into the satellites when the mood takes them will love the revamped version of the old Cyclones Satellites. Here you can play when you want and also stop at will to play again when you’re ready.

All you have to do is ramp up your starting stack to 5,000 chips and then it’s onto the next level up.

The format is almost identical to the fast-fold cash game format where players can up and leave when they want. Simply click fast-fold and a new hand on a different table will be waiting for you instantly.

With only 10 days to go until Day 2 kicks off, some players just won’t be able to make the party. In that case, they should take a look at the new staking feature on ACR.

This is perfect for those with no time to play—can’t play yourself, then simply back another player that you respect who does.

The beauty of this new feature is that there is no risk of getting scammed. The site escrows the money and pays out any backers automatically.

The action kicks off tomorrow with satellites running until next Sunday.
