TRT-Vitor Bags ACR Venom Title and $1.39million Payday!

The ACR Venom title and a monster payout of $1,394,821 has gone to TRT-Vitor who ran his final table chip lead all the way to victory after a heads-up deal…

By: Andrew Burnett

The US-facing site saw their biggest Venom yet, the $2650 buy-in tournament smashing through the $7million guarantee – the 3872 entries topping out the prizepool at a staggering $9.68million.

That meant the top prize was over $1.5million, and 8 players returned to yesterday’s final table to fight it out for glory and life-changing money.

With $129,712 already secured, the cashes were almost certainly the biggest of each players’ careers, and Portugal’s SILKSKYER was the first to depart with that in his or her pocket.

You always need a bit of good fortune to reach the winner’s podium and an early sign that TRT-Vitor was in with a shout came as they busted fellow US player BUSSJUUGS in 7th…

TRT-Vitor: 9♥ Q♣
Board: 2♠ J♥ 10♥ 5♥ 3♥

The remaining 6 players were whittled down further, the tension rising along with the prizemoney, with Austria’s Way2Ezy pocketing a monster $587,576 in 4th place.

That left just three to chase the ultimate Venom prize, and for UK’s Cachingaling it would end in 3rd spot – a hand that may well haunt them for a lifetime, despite the monster $836,352 cash.

TRT-Vitor: 10♠ 10♣
Cachingaling: 7♣ 7♦
Flop: 9♠ J♣ 9♥
Turn: 7♠
River: 10♦

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Heads-up and with a $400k difference between 1st and 2nd, a deal to reduce the variance made absolute sense…

The finale was befitting of the biggest Venom that ACR have run so far, and when all the chips finally went in on the flop…

TRT-Vitor: Kh K♦
Flop: 3h 6h 7♦

…Forrest was relying on the nut flush or inside straight draws coming in to topple his opponent’s kings, but the board ran out…

Turn: 10♠
River: J♠

…and TRT_Vitor had held on and scooped the extra $25k and Venom bragging rights!

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Final results:

1 TRT-Vitor $1,394,821
2 FORRESTRANFAR $1,282,666
4 WAY2EZY $587,576
5 TAYHAYWILL $420,112
6 FREDDY ADU $323,312
7 BUSSJUUGS $226,512
8 SILKSKYER $129,712

Americas CardRoom will doubtless be delighted at the response to their Venom, the biggest turnout and payouts yet, and fans of the site have something else to look forward to.

The hugely popular OSS Cub3d is already upon us, with a 220-event series boasting $15million in guaranteed prizemoney and including two $1million GTD tournaments.

Four weeks of non-stop action kicked off just a few days ago and will run until August 30th, as always a three-pronged affair with buy-ins to suit every bankroll.
