This time around, the Winning Poker Network is a little bit late with its spring Venom tournament in the PKO format. It was recently announced by the Americas Cardroom that Day 1A will kick off on May 13th. The festival will feature an impressive guarantee of $5,000,000 across all of its events. Overall, this tournament will be quite similar to its predecessors, with the main difference being in the Venom Fever satellites structure. Read on for more details. 

The Venom PKO Overview

It was evident that the flagship tournament of the Winning Poker Network has been losing some of its popularity since the second half of last year. The last few editions of the Venom PKO have been slightly lower in terms of guarantees. However, with the fourth edition of the Venom PKO with $5,000,000 guaranteed, WPN is likely going to attract many players once again. It is fair to say that there is a good possibility of an overlay. 

1.000$ Bonus/US Players Welcome

The Venom PKO won’t have any significant changes in its structures. Like before, there will be a total of 4 starting flights on Fridays and Sundays:

  • Day 1A: Friday, May 13th
  • Day 1B: Sunday, May 15th
  • Day 1C: Friday, May 20th
  • Day 1D: Sunday, May 22nd
  • Day 2: Monday, May 23rd
  • Day 3: Tuesday, May 24th
  • Final table: Wednesday, May 25th

These starting flights will start at 17:05 GMT. Players are offered an opportunity to participate in all of them, however, only your best result will count towards Day 2. All participants will receive a starting stack of 187.7 BB with blind levels at 20 minutes. The late registration period will last for 18 levels with unlimited re-entries allowed. Day 1 is set to wrap up its action at the end of level 28 (9 hours of play). 

The Venom PKO Satellites

Players in the Americas Cardroom can already join the Venom PKO qualifiers. Daily step satellites are also already available in the poker room. Their structure has remained unchanged since the last Venom PKO. The Venom Fever direct qualifiers will run until May 22nd. On average, buy-ins have been decreased from $101 to $71 (buy-ins will range from $32 to $290). The total number of satellites has decreased as well from 209 to 169. However, the total number of guaranteed tickets was brought up to 757 from 574. There will be 4.5 tickets guaranteed per satellite on average. Last year, that number was only 2.7. 

Currently, players can qualify for the satellites via steps, which begin with a freeroll. Here is the full The Venom PKO Fever schedule:
