Poker players whose New Year’s resolution is to win a lot of money are heading to ACR Poker. The popular worldwide poker site is returning its $5 million guaranteed Venom PKO tourney starting Thursday, January 18.
“Our Venom PKO is well known as the biggest progressive knockout (PKO) tourney in online poker,” ACR Pro Chris Moneymaker said. “It has beaten its $5 million guarantee in all seven previous editions and we expect this to happen again.”
In the Venom PKO, players take part in some of the biggest hands of their life with single bounties worth tens of thousands of dollars. It last ran just a few months ago in October, with the winner pocketing $371,000 plus a whopping $312,000 in bounty money.
The $5 million Venom PKO costs $2,650 to get into but players can qualify for far less via Venom Fever. Those satellites are guaranteeing 650 seats with direct buy-ins beginning at $33 and mega satellites that start at $0 by following the daily path. There are also other ways to qualify like step tournaments that start at eleven cents.
Moneymaker went on to note that the popular Venom Hold‘Em tourney, which typically comes with a $10 million guarantee, will return in the next few months.

ACR POKER RETURNS ITS HIGH FIVE SERIES, AWARDING 20 SEATS TO RECORD-SETTING VENOM
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.
