America’s largest online poker site, ACR Poker, is set to host its biggest tournament to date this spring, running from April 14 to May 1. The highly popular Venom tournament will feature a record-breaking $12.5 million guaranteed prize pool, marking the largest in the event’s five-year history.

The $12.5 Million GTD Venom tournament is poised to be the largest online poker event for US players in the past fifteen years. To add to the excitement, live commentary from industry professionals will be available. Notable poker personalities, including producer, broadcaster, and poker commentator Justin Kelly, will join in providing live comments during the tournament’s Final Table on ACR Poker’s official Twitch channel on May 1.

The event will commence on April 14, with the first of five Day 1 options available. Day 2 will follow on April 29, and Day 3 on April 30. Players who advance to Day 2 are restricted from signing up for any additional Day 1 flights. Additionally, the tournament does not offer the opportunity to play a separate Day 1 after a player has qualified to obtain a bigger stack.

The buy-in is set at $2,650, but ACR Poker is offering more accessible alternatives for players to secure a seat, including the Beast and Step tourneys and the Venom Fever satellites.

In 2019, the tournament debuted with a $5 million guaranteed prize pool, which doubled just two years later. This year’s winner of the Venom’s 5th Anniversary tournament will be assured of a prize of at least $1 million. The milestone event is also anticipated to create multiple millionaires, giving aspiring players the chance to follow in the footsteps of last year’s champion, Brandon Lulov, also known as S3L3NAGOM3ZZ, who walked away with close to $1,578,000.

ACR Pro Chris Moneymaker expressed his excitement for the upcoming tournament, citing the $12.5 million prize pool and numerous qualification opportunities as reasons it’s the perfect time to join the action. Earlier this month, ACR Poker also announced the eighth edition of its Venom PKO tournament.
