The proof is in the pudding: The $6 Million Venom makes an impression

ACR $6 Million Venom Results

Any poker site can boast about how their latest tournament is bigger or better than anything offered by the competition. But only one poker room can actually back up those claims with numbers.

That site is Americas Cardroom and the tournament we’re talking about is the $6 Million Venom, which just wrapped in spectacular fashion. Here’s a glance at how it all unfolded:

  • Total initially guaranteed: $6 Million
  • Final prize pool: $6,740,000
  • Total entries: 2,696
  • 1st place prize initially guaranteed: $1 Million
  • Final 1st place prize: $1,039,982

The big winner of the tournament was ‘galodoido13’. Look for his name making headlines because he just became an instant millionaire.

If you want to follow in his footsteps, stop by Americas Cardroom in 6 months for the next $6 Million Venom. The online poker site just announced that they’re making the Venom a permanent fixture on the tournament schedule.

We don’t know if the next one will be $6 Million, $7 Million, or something even bigger, so we recommend watching Americas Cardroom to find out. And then make a plan to conquer the tournament. We’ll be rooting for you.

Americas Cardroom is celebrating the New Year with a special Blitz Bonus Builder promo. From January 1st to 10th you can get $10 bonus cash for every 250 Blitz Poker hands dealt. That’s up to $100 bonus daily and $1,000 total.

Americas Cardroom’s $6 Million Venom tourney is coming quickly

ACR $6 Million VenomJust a few short months after Americas Cardroom made history with the successful $5 Million Venom, which finished with a giant $6,382,500 prize pool, the poker site is about to make history once again with a bigger $6 Million Venom. This is going to be the biggest event ever held by any US-facing poker site and the winner is guaranteed a massive $1,000,000, just like in the $5 Million Venom.

The Venom has four separate Day 1’s that will find players advancing to Day 2. It finishes on Wednesday, December 11th in what will certainly be one of the biggest days in the history of online poker.

You can grab your seat directly for $2,650 right now, or you can do what a large number of ACR players have already done and qualify for a seat at a fraction of the cost. Take advantage of ACR’s Step Tournaments, Skip Tournaments, Regular Satellites, Mega Satellites and Cyclones to get a seat for little or no money.

Step Tournaments start at a buy-in of $0. This means that you can actually earn a seat at the $2,650 Venom for free. Cyclones, which are a brand-new option starting November 14th, are offering a whirlwind of action, so check out the website and see how they work.

In addition, don’t forget about ACR’s Online Super Series (OSS) that will run through December 15th. $12 Million in total guarantees is ready to be handed out, including the cash to be awarded in the Venom, the Featured Event of the series. There are also two separate $1,000,000 GTD events and one even has a massive 13 Day 1 options.

Americas Cardroom gives Venom access a twist with Cyclones

ACR Venom CyclonesAmericas Cardroom (ACR) is almost ready to let the chips fly in the $6 Million GTD Venom tournament in November and, with $1 million in cash waiting for the person who takes it down, the event is already seeing a lot of excitement.

Participation can be bought for the $2,650 buy-in, or you can take advantage of the many Satellites, Mega Satellites, Step Tourneys and Skip Tourneys ACR has on the schedule. There’s also a new way you can pick up a seat and it’s really twisting things up.

ACR is offering Cyclone events that will get started on November 14th. These events will be available whether you prefer desktop or mobile poker and are a form of Blitz satellite that is incredibly fast.

Players begin by choosing any of the seven Steps they want to buy into, with the first Step at just 25 cents, and, once 5,000 chips are collected, they automatically move up to the next level. If you work your way through Step 7, you qualify for a $2,650 Venom seat!

What makes Cyclones even more incredible is that you can step away at any time without losing your chip stack – when you come back, all the chips will be waiting for you. Also, if you finish with over 5,000 chips on your last hand – for example, 5,500 chips – you are given a Step ticket to the next Step with the 5,000 chips, while the additional 500 will be used to automatically re-seat you on the Step you’re currently playing. This means you can potentially win an unlimited number of Venom seats with just one Cyclone!

The $12 Million OSS at Americas Cardroom will be even bigger with the $6 Million Venom

Americas Cardroom (ACR) has already had a great and successful 2019, but the US-facing poker site isn’t quite done. In keeping with its goal of being the best poker option, it is going to bring the year to a close on a high note with the upcoming Online Super Series (OSS) from November 20th through December 15th. The series offers 26 days of poker action and includes $12 Million in guarantees across 150 tournaments.

ACR Venom and OSS

The OSS is designed for all types of players — from the beginner to the pro. It has a range of events, including NLH, PLO, and PLO8, with structures that include regular, turbo and hyper-turbo.

In the past, the OSS has included one $1-million guaranteed event; however, this time there are going to be two of them. One, beginning on Sunday, December 8th at 3pm ET, has a buy-in of $540 buy-in and the other has a $215 buy-in with 13 Day 1 options starting November 20th. Those who advance will look to make history starting Sunday, December 15th at 3pm ET.

The Featured Event of the OSS is the highly anticipated $6 Million Venom, which will get going on Wednesday, November 27th. It has a $2,650 buy-in, but there are ways to qualify for much less through ACR’s Step Tournaments, Skip Tournaments, Regular Satellites, Mega Satellites and Cyclones.

If you’re not familiar with Cyclones, they’re a type of rapid Blitz Poker satellite launching on November 14th. You can start at any step of the seven available – the lowest only costs $.25 – and, after winning 5,000 chips, you advance to the next level. Once you complete all 7 steps, you win a $2,650 Venom seat.

Americas Cardroom fighting poker BOTs heads-on

We have a major update from Americas Cardroom. The US-facing site has been fighting online poker BOTs heads on and is coming out on top.

Recently, online BOT provider War Bot removed Americas Cardroom from their list of supported sites, and Shanky technologies ( and Kraken, Medusa ( have reported that their BOTS are currently not working on the site.

Over the years, BOTS have been a problem for Americas Cardroom and almost every other poker site. Recently, ACR was forced to ban 12 players after being involved with bots and refunded $450,000 to affected customers.

Americas Cardroom knew they couldn’t keep doing the status quo. So first they enlarged both their BOT and Customer Assessment teams.

Next, they unleashed quite a significant software upgrade. BOT companies now have to keep reprogramming their software to get it to function on ACR. Most BOT companies have decided to move onto other sites.

Finally, ACR added a new Google Captcha service in the poker client that really helps catch BOTS.

ACR $6 Million VenomAmericas Cardroom’s fight against bots is just one in a recent string of successes. They hosted a $5 Million Venom tourney this summer that had a $6,382,500 final prize pool. The winner took home over $1,050,000.

Beginning Wednesday, November 27th is an even-bigger $6 Million GTD Venom. Top prize is again $1 Million minimum and you can get your $2,650 seat for a fraction of the cost via satellites or even for free through Step tourneys.

ACR’s $250,000 Freebuy Super Series is your “free lunch”

ACR Freebuy series infoThe old expression says “there is no such thing as a free lunch”. Well, whoever came up with that expression has clearly never heard of Americas Cardroom.

Every player who enters a Freebuy tournament gets 1,000 free chips. You can choose to fight it out with that or do real money rebuys (2,500 chips) and an add-on (10,000 chips). You can also earn free rebuys by completing easy tasks on social media like watching an Americas Cardroom’s YouTube video. Click for more information on the ACR Freebuy Super Series

$6 Million Venom coming this November

After the Freebuy Super Series ends, you’ll want to focus your attention on something even bigger. It’s their $6 Million Venom tourney that starts Wednesday, November 27th.

At least $1 Million will go to the winner, the same as during their $5 Million Venom this July which finished with a $6,382,500 prize pool. Earn your $2,650 Venom seat for far less via satellites, or even for free through their step tournaments.

Americas Cardroom is the cash game site that doesn’t make you want to swear !

We wanted to lace this article with a lot of 4-letter expletives. Sadly, our editors told us cuss words would be a bad idea. We’re not sure that’s entirely fair, though. After all, how do you describe the treatment cash game players receive from some of the big poker sites out there without swearing? Really, they’re treated like a bag of shitake mushrooms (let’s see if our editor catches that one). If you’re a cash game player, you know exactly what we mean:

  • So many sites block you from using Heads-up Displays.
  • Hand Histories? Nope.
  • Rewards? You’re lucky if you can get enough money in a month to buy a cookie from McDonald’s.
  • Multi-tabling? No, no, and no.

We know, the worst! Thankfully, there’s Americas Cardroom, which lets you:

  • Play up to 24 tables at once
  • Use Hand Histories and Heads-up Displays
  • Enjoy serious rewards through Elite Benefits, a poker rewards program that comes with big incentives for your play
  • Make cash and earn tournament seats every week through The Beast, a points race just for cash game players

And it’s not just cash game players that are reaping the rewards. Tourney players are covered too with big tournament action, including the upcoming $6 Million Venom, which starts November 27th. It promises to be bigger and better than the recent $5 Million Venom, which saw a final prize pool of $6,382,400.
