The High Five Tournament Series, running March 10th31st, isn’t just the best way for players to ‘take their bankroll higher’. It’s also a great way to earn a seat to ACR Poker’s record-breaking $12.5 Million Venom tourney this April.

“We typically run the High Five in April as part of the humorous 420 theme, but this time it’s a lead in to the $12.5 Million Venom,” stated ACR Pro, Chris Moneymaker. “So, make sure you light up the tables and win one of 20 Venom seats in our Leaderboard Competition.”

The High Five features $12.2 Million in guarantees over 220 tourneys. It’s broken down to exactly 10 events a day, with five being lower stakes ($33 or less). Overall buy-ins range from $1.10 to $1,050, so players of all bankroll sizes can participate and get a great payout.

Moneymaker added that while all High Five tourneys are buzzworthy, players will definitely want to inhale the two Main Events on Sunday, March 31st. One is a $1 Million GTD ($630 buyin) and the other $500,000 GTD ($215 buy-in).

The Leaderboard Competition will award 20 seats to the $12.5 Million Venom. That’s a $53,000 value, paid directly out of ACR Poker’s pocket. It’s actually two separate leaderboards based on Low ($1.10 to $33) and High ($44 to $1,050) buy-ins.

Finally, in keeping with the 420 theme, the High Five features a daily 10-minute “courtesy break” at 4:20pm ET. This gives players the chance to grab some munchies, have a bathroom break or relax in any way they see fit.
