TRT-Vitor Scoops $1.39million Venom Win On ACR
06 Aug

The biggest-ever Americas CardRoom payout went to US player TRT-Vitor last night, a heads-up deal with Mexico’s forrestranfar seeing both players join the $millionaire club!

There were 3872 entries to the $2650 buy-in, $7million GTD tournament, and that meant the guarantee was smashed to smithereens - the players were chasing almost $10million in prizemoney.

Come the final day’s play and 8 players returned to battle for a massive share of that prizepool, four Europeans in the mix on the mostly US-facing site.

When the KOs came, as the inevitably did, one player seemed to have the poker gods on their side – TRT-Vitor seemingly unable to miss a single river…

…with that one followed by a massive ‘double-swing’ in fortunes to knock out the UK’s final hope in 3rd

TRT-Vitor: 10♠ 10♣

Cachingaling: 7♣ 7♦

Board: 9♠ J♣ 9♥ 7♠ 10♦

Heads-up and a deal was agreed, both players pocketing incredible sums and leaving $25k and the Venom trophy to play for. That extra cash went to the US player when pocket kings held up against a small ace on a big draw.

Final results:
