ACR Poker to Run World’s Biggest PKO Tournament October 19th!
Tomorrow, Thursday October 19th, ACR Poker will once again write online poker history. Formerly known as Americas Cardroom, ACR Poker has been a long time giant on the poker scene with ambassadors such as WSOP 2023 Main Event Champion and poker legend Chris Moneymaker. Now, they will once again host their legendary $5M GTD Venom PKO Tournament, which is recognized as the world’s biggest progressive knockout tournament.
$5M Venom PKO - World’s Biggest PKO Tournament
Players do not want to miss out on this online poker tournament. With four day 1’s, the felt seeks to be big and a lot of PKO lovers will surely take the opportunity grabbing a slice of the whopping $5M GTD prize pool.
The tournament has a Buy-In of $2 650 and qualifiers under form of Venom Blitz Satellites and Step Tourneys for pennies have been running the last couple of weeks on the site. On top of that, players have had the opportunity to freeroll their way in to the tournament through sub-satellites. This guarantees a large player pool in the well-known biggest PKO Tournament.
This will be the seventh time the Venom PKO appears in the ACR Poker client, and the guarantee has been exceeded all previous times. The last edition were played back in May this year, seeing the winner taking home $718 000, with $233 000 of these being in form of pure bounties. It is not a rarity to see single bounties being worth tens of thousands of dollars in the Venom PKO.
To spice things up even more, Moneymaker hinted about “additional Venom specials” on all day 1’s and day 2 of the tournament, which makes the tournament even more mythic.
