$5 Million Dollar Venom Update

Americas Cardroom to Host Biggest Online Poker Tournament in History for a U.S. Facing Site

Here are a few more details and updated start times on the $5 Million Venom directly from Americas Cardrooms latest press release:

San Jose, Costa Rica – July 5, 2019 – Americas Cardroom is once again proving that online poker’s best days are yet to come. Their multi-day $5 Million Venom starting Sunday, July 14th will be their biggest tournament to date and the largest ever 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,” stated Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “That’s because it’s happening this July at Americas Cardroom.”
The $5 Million Venom has a guaranteed prize pool of $5,000,000, with a life-changing $1,000,000 going to the winner. The tourney also offers maximum flexibility with three Day 1’s. Poker players can begin playing on Sunday, July 14th (Day 1A), Tuesday, July 16th (Day 1B) or Sunday, July 21st (Day 1C).
When play wraps up on Wednesday, July 24th, Americas Cardroom will send the winner their $1 Million prize within minutes via Bitcoin to show the world how dependable and fast the cryptocurrency is. The player can also choose to send the Bitcoin payment back and get paid in a more traditional method.

While the $5 Million Venom costs $2,650 to buy-in directly, the poker site doesn’t want anyone sitting on the sidelines. Players can qualify for pennies on the dollar via daily Satellites and Super Satellites (start at $4.40), Step Tournaments (start at $0) and the Spin to Get IN slot machine (starts at one cent).

As if this wasn’t enough, Americas Cardroom Online Super Series kicks off on July 21st. The OSS Cub3d is a 3-part online poker tournament series that runs for 30 days. Overall, players will find $13 million in guarantees, spread across 160 events.

Americas Cardroom V2 poker client (Beta)

Here is my first detailed look at Americas Cardroom all new poker client V2

Before everyone gets too excited I have to say it looks basically the same, with a few new additions. I was hoping to play an hour or so and get a feel for the game. I couldn’t do that, there was only a few players (beta testers) on line when I logged on at about 8PM ET. I only got to play a few hands and then my opponent left the table.

Please be Aware: This V2 poker client software is in beta, everything mentioned may or may not be included on the final version of V2. This is just a first look and initial trial on my part. Not all links shown are active, Nothing here is set in stone. I am on a Windows computer and not an Apple so I can’t speak for that version.

All Beta Testers use a separate user name and account, are given $50K in play money to start and can play all they wish. All ACR/WPN asks from them is that you give them your feedback of any kind — good, bad, ideas, suggestions, etc.

Holdem Table

Play is currently is kinda hesitant on the regular cash tables. Probably because it is still in Beta and they’re still working on some of the bugs/details. The Blitz tables moved faster, but I was only playing head to head and that can only move so fast.

The table looks about the same, I do like the new updated font used for player names, player stack totals and bet amounts.

There are also new sit out options. Just click the up arrows (∧) to use.

You now can choose to sit out the next hand on this table only, sit out on all open tables and return to all tables. You also now have a choice to sit out next BB this table, Next BB all tables and return to all tables.

They also added some simple stats hands dealt, pot wins, net win/loss and flops saw. This is available on the bar graph link on the chat box

Bet options, bet slider, quick action buttons are all the same.

Table options are the same as before, table themes, card colors, table sounds, buy-in/re-buy, preferred seat, etc.

The Main Lobby (cash tables)

Again it looks the same, only with the new addition of the Blitz Poker tab.

Blitz Poker is where you are placed in a large pool of players playing 6 max holdem. As soon as you fold your current hand you are taken to a new table with a fresh deal and a fresh hand.

Another thing to note: 6+Hold-em is missing from the game option tabs.

The game options include NLHE, FLHE, PLHE, PLO, PLO8, 7 Card stud, 7 Card stud hi-lo.

I was really hoping they would add some new games like Razz, 2-7 low, Hose and Horse just to name a few to give us players who want to try something different something to play, I’m hoping this still happens.

The Casino and Sports tabs are inactive on the beta version lobby.

Tournament Lobby

Again lots of tournament options but not enough Beta testers.

The tournament lobby itself is basically the same, click a tournament and the detail box on the right scrolls all the important details of that tournament.

Tournament types can be sorted by All, guaranteed, satellite, special events, freeroll and private tabs.

Overall,

I am a little surprised that ACR hasn’t been able to recruit more of their players to give the new V2 client a try. Many players have been whining and complaining for years that the software needed an upgrade, now it’s here and testing and no one seems interested? WTF?

I am hoping more players will download the V2 and can give ACR/WPN some valid and helpful feedback. To not only improve the software but work out all the bugs before it goes live with real money.

I logged on quickly this morning and the client was down for maintenance Like I said earlier, I’ll give it a more detailed try later tonight. I do expect that there will be a lot of down time during the test as they refine their software and start working out all the bugs.

Have you seen the Fan Duel ad’s on your home MLB TV games?

I just saw the first Fan Duel TV ad I’ve seen in a while……..

I was watching my favorite baseball team on my home TV and saw a Fan Duel ad. Now some of you may think, so what it’s an ad…

I haven’t seen a Fan Duel on local TV in a while…….National TV yes, I see them occasionally.

The theme of this TV time for Fan Duel was make any deposit, play a contest or two and get $5 free.

If that interests you then click here: Fanduel.com

You’ll get a $5 bonus instantly with any deposit…..

I play a lot of MLB contests on Fan Duel and as I write this here is how I’m doing tonight:

Yes, my Home Run Challenge entry isn’t quite what I want, but my regular lineups seem to be working tonight.

If playing fantasy baseball while watching your team (using your guys) interests you, visit Fan Duel and get into the game now……………….

The Venom $5M GTD Poker Tournament Update #1

May 12, 2019 Update on the $5M Venom

As I posted previously Americas Cardroom has scheduled the largest guaranteed poker tournament they have ever hosted. The $5 Million Dollar Venom ($1M to the winner).

Now ACR is not the largest internet poker room, it is however trying to become one of the best poker rooms you can play here in the USA. How do you do that? You come up with promotions that players will notice and want to try. That’s what the Venom will accomplish, grabbing as much attention and attracting players from the world round.

I am going to be tracking the progress of total Venom tournament sign-ups and total Venom prize pool amount to see if WPN/ACR can fill a tournament this large and to see if a potential over-lay can make this a must play event for the serious online poker community.

Currently The Venom seems to be filling at a constant rate.

I will monitor the progress once or twice a week (my work schedule limits my screen time) to see if we can make a determination of how big the prize pool will be.

Right now, Sunday May 12th: The Venom is sitting at about 10% of the guarantee with just over 2 months to meet the $5 million dollar GTD.

The Venom Tournament Details:

$2650 buy-in, $5 Million dollars in GTD prize pool, $1 million to the winner, NLHE, 8-max tables, 250,000 chip stack, 30 minute blinds, 6 hours (12 levels late registration) starts at 1PM ET on July 16, 2019.

Entries needed to meet GTD: 2000

Current Entries:   196

Current Prize Pool: $490,000

Current places Paid: 27

Days to first hand dealt: 64

Americas Cardroom has numerous satellites to the Venom so don’t let the $2650 buy-in scare you away.

There are numerous satellites scheduled every week on Americas Cardroom up until July 16, 2019. Satellite Buy-ins start as low a $4, $10, $20, $80, $100 and $180 and are scheduled every day and evenings.

You can even free roll your way into the Venom via steps tournaments. You can even buy into any step at any point if you so choose (you don’t have to complete each step, for example you can buy into step 3 for $16.51 and if you win a seat you are on to step 4). The Step one free rolls are every 4 hours, the remaining steps start when full.

Go to ACR now and get yourself a seat on the $5M Venom today.

Free PGA Championship Contest on Fan Duel

FREE PGA Championship Fantasy Contest

As you may already know, the PGA Championship tees off next Thursday. Fan Duel is hosting a series of Free Play PGA fantasy contests for all the 4 Majors of the 2019 season.

The first one was for the Masters, of which I was lucky enough to have confidence in Tiger Woods to show he still has it. Now keep in mind I’m no golf expert. I just did some reading and followed some expert advice and lo and behold I actually had some winning line ups.

Here’s my score from the Masters

This is the second of 4 free contests. This contest starts on May 16th at 6:45AM and runs thru May 19th, is completely free to join and pays a total of 10,500 winners a total of $10,000 in cash prizes.

Prize Listing

1st $500

2nd $250

3rd  $150

4th – 5th $100

6th – 7th $75

8th – 10th $50

11th – 20th $25

21st – 35th $20

There is also also a season long contest included in this series

Play all 4 of the free contests across each major golf tournament of the season from 4/11-7/21: The Masters, PGA Championship, U.S. Open, and The Open. There’s cash prizes for each individual contest, plus a trip to Bermuda for the player with the top combined score. Your top two combined scores of the contest series count towards the final leader board, so be sure to enter all 4 for more chances to win. You can track your scores on a leader board throughout series.

I played in the first free contest (the Masters) and not only placed and won a cash prize, but I’m actually in the competition for the Bermuda Trip, only about 75 points behind the current leader.

Like I said before, I’m no expert but if I can place a winning score and actually be in the competition for the big prize, anyone can do it………..why not go it a try, give yourself a little financial interest in who wins and competes in next weeks PGA Championship.

Check out the entire PGA Fantasy Contest listing and see what other contests are available, including the $500K The PGA Big Cat Eagle (Big Cat Cash Back, $15 entry, $100K to 1st place)

Big Cat Cash Back – If Tiger wins the PGA Championship, Fan Duel will refund all entry fees in this contest.

Fan Duel Home Run Challenge

Fan Duel Home Run Challenge Contests

I really haven’t been doing much writing the last few months, but I have still been playing quite a bit of Daily Fantasy on Fan Duel. I had a great NBA season on Fan Duel and used my new found abilities (luck?) to venture onto daily MLB contests and on select PGA contests (like The Masters).

The first thing I wanted to discuss on Fan Duel to everyone is their current Free MLB promo: The Home Run Challenge…….

What is it? It is a completely free game, every day in May that is basically a nightly Home Run Derby.

It’s simple: Only home runs count. Just select any three MLB players, playing that day with no salary cap, and get 1 point for every homer they hit.

Top daily/nightly scores share $1000 that day and qualify for the $20,000 Home Run Challenge Final on May 31, 2019.

Total Prizes to be awarded=$50,000 completely free on Fan Duel

How many Home Runs do you need to win? Some nights just 3, some nights 5 or 6. It depends entirely on how the players hit that night. If it’s a low HR night, just a bunch of guys with single homers then 3 will compete. If several players have 2 or more HR’s each then 6 or 7 may be the winner.

Here’s the final contest standing from May 9th, 2019. There was only 5 MLB games on that slate, so the number was low. On nights where there is a full 13 to 15 game slate then there are more hitters, hitting more pitchers, so there will be quite a few more home runs to count.

To find these Free Contests, just go to the Fan Duel Main lobby, click MLB and click Home Run Challenge.

This is a great promo, it’s completely free, gives you something to watch and cheer for and could be profitable if you happen to find those right match-ups and your guys go deep………Visit Fan Duel to get started

Lock down a WSOP Main Event Seat During WSOP Takedown Week on ACR

WSOP TAKEDOWN WEEK

Here’s the official press release from ACR on TAKEDOWN WEEK

San Jose, Costa Rica – May 7, 2019 – Don’t be surprised if you see an Americas Cardroom player at the final table of the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas. The US-facing online poker site has announced its WSOP Takedown Week, which will award 15 WSOP prize packages worth $12,500 each, $187,500 in total.

“We all dream about taking down the WSOP Main Event, and for one lucky player, that could be a reality,” stated Michael Harris, spokesperson for Americas Cardroom. “If you dream of becoming poker world champion, don’t miss our WSOP Takedown Week.”

From June 3rd through 9th, Americas Cardroom is hosting WSOP Takedown Week. Dotting the schedule are several qualifiers each day (starting at $2.20), all of which lead to a WSOP Main Event Satellite on June 9th at 4pm ET which guarantees the 15 packages.

Players can also buy-in directly to the WSOP Main Event Satellite for $1,920 or enter a Step Tournament that’s running now (starts at 28 cents).

Players who win a package will receive the full $12,500 credited to their account. That’s $10,000 earmarked for the Main Event buy-in and another $2,500 for travel expenses. While dreams are made by playing in the WSOP Main Event, winners can just keep the cash if they wish.

Some players may use some of that cash to buy into Americas Cardroom’s upcoming $5 Million Venom. This record-breaking online tourney begins July 16th and ends with someone winning $1 Million guaranteed. The direct buy-in is $2,650, but players can also win their way for free.
