ACR $5 Million GTD Venom Offers Multiple Day 1s and Biggest Stack Option

Included in the mix is the Biggest Stack Option that allows players to take their largest stack into Day 2 action, while forfeiting their other, smaller stacks.

Day 1A kicks off on July 14, with Day 1B set for July 16 and Day 1C on July 21. Each Day 1 gets underway at 1:00 p.m. ET and a $2,650 buy-in is good for a starting chip stack of 250,000. Blinds will increase every 20 minutes.

Days 2 thru 4 will play out from July 22-24 with the same starting time as Day 1s, except for the final day when action commences at 5:00 p.m. The final table is scheduled for a live broadcast.

Glory Days are Here

Although US online poker took a hit in 2011 on Black Friday, those days are long gone and Americas Cardroom is on a mission to prove that poker's best days are yet to come. The Venom will be the largest online poker tournament ever offered by a US-facing site.

"You don't need time travel to be invented if you want to experience the golden era of online poker," said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “That’s because it's happening this July at Americas Cardroom.”

There are mega ways to win a seat to the Venom - and even to qualify for free. Daily Satellites, Super Satellites, Step Tournaments and the Spin to Get IN slot machine are all funneling winners to the massive $5,000,000 GTD tournament.

If you happen to win more than one Venom seat via any of those methods, you're free to sell any multiple tickets to other players at whatever price is agreed upon. Buyer and seller simply need to each send an email to and provide the agreed upon details.

OSS Cub3d Returns

When the Venom winner eliminates his or her heads-up opponent on July 24, the guaranteed $1 million prize will be deposited in the champ's account via Bitcoin within minutes, proving to all onlookers that the cryptocurrency is fast and dependable. The new millionaire has the option to choose a different form of payment.

While all eyes will naturally be on the $5M GTD Venom, Americas Cardroom has other events lined up as another Online Super Series gets underway on July 21. The latest version of OSS Cub3d will run thru August 18 and pay out at least $13 million guaranteed over 160 events.

The 3-part MTT series offers buy-ins for every bankroll and budget while it also overlaps with the $5 Million Venom. Two additional $1 million Main Events are on the OSS Cub3d schedule!
