The $10 million guaranteed Venom event starts tomorrow with Day 1A. The first of four Day 1 starting flights that will run over the next 10 days.
Just like normal, this will be an even bigger and better tournament than previous editions. The $10 million guarantee will ensure that the winner walks away with at least $1,000,000 in prize money.
Record-BreakingThe $10 million Venom costs $2,650 to buy-in directly but the whole month has been geared towards helping players with smaller bankrolls qualify on the cheap.
ACR has laid on no less than three variations of satellite qualification for the masses in the hope that some players can unexpectedly take their poker careers to new heights.
Any player who works through the satellite system is guaranteed to face a bunch of big names from the high-stakes tournament scene.
Day 1A starts tomorrow but players still have until January 30 to qualify for Day 1D, the final leg into Day 2.
Venom FeverQuickest route into the $10 million Venom is to enter the Venom Fever MEGA Satellites that will run all the way up until Day 1D starts Sunday next week.
A total of 750 seats for the Main Event will be won throughout the three-step process. Just like usual, players can buy-in from the very bottom step all the way up to paying $2,650 for direct entry.
All players need to do is enter one of the freeroll events and win one of 10 tickets to move onto the Super Satellite. 10 more tickets will be up for grabs to move up to the MEGA Satellite where entry into the Venom is the prize.
Step and Skip TournamentsStep tournaments are a great way to qualify, possibly even for free. Played over nine steps players can choose exactly which level they want to start on, with Step 1 being a freeroll and Step 9 costing $850 where at least two Venom tickets are up for grabs.
The Skip tournaments are played across four steps, but with a small difference to the Step tournaments—players can move up more than a single level, ultimately winning entry into the Venom.
Venom Blitz SatellitesVenom Blitz Satellites are the fast and furious way to qualify, and also the most convenient. No waiting around here and you can also stop and start as you please.
The idea is a revamped version of the classic Cyclones Satellites that is modelled on fast-fold poker. Jump in and out whenever you feel like it.
All you have to do is build your starting stack up to 5,000 chips and then move up.

StakingThis edition of the Venom will showcase the new staking feature added to the ACR client. For players who have no time to get involved, just back another player who you think has potential to do well.
What makes this special is that the money from the backer and any prize money owed is automatically processed by ACR. No scams are possible.
