  • Americas Cardroom launches Cyclones Blitz satellites and Step Tournaments for $6 million Venom

  • Cyclones are desktop and mobile compatible

  • Player only has to reach 5000 chips to be rewarded a seat regardless of placement in pool

  • New feature allows player to log off computer and come back again with chip stack saved

  • Win more than one seat with a single buy-in

  • First place is a guaranteed $1 million

Your chance at winning a piece of the $6 million Venom tournament has never been easier thanks to the newly introduced CYCLONES Blitz Poker satellites and Step Tournaments.

Cyclones start November 14th, 2019 and are compatible with both Desktop and Mobile. They are Blitz Poker satellites in that they are fast-paced games where you are instantly seated at a new table whenever you fold.

Cyclones are also Step Tournaments that can award a $2,650 seat to the $6 Million Venom tournament which begins Wednesday, November 27th.

Highlights of the Cylcones include:

No longer are just the top players in a satellite rewarded a seat.  Instead, all the player has to do is reach 5,000 chips from his or her starting stack to either advance to the next step or win their seat (depending on what step they are on). 

With the blitz format (player pool), players have the ability to log off at any time.  Americas Cardroom will remember their chip stack for a later time when the player wishes to log back on again.

Once reaching the required 5,000 chips, you can pay the difference to get to the next step or your next seat should you choose.

You can win more than one seat with a single buy-in.  An example of this would be finishing a hand with 6,000 chips and getting rewarded with a ticket for the next step and reseated at the same step with the remaining $1,000.  

As is typical with recent Venom tournaments, the first place winner walks away with a guaranteed $1 million.

The next Venom Million runs from November 27th to December 11th with the schedule appearing below.

Day 1A: Wednesday, November 27th, 1pm ET
Day 1B: Sunday, December 1st, 1pm ET
Day 1C: Wednesday, December 4th, 11am ET
Day 1D: Sunday, December 8th, 1pm ET
Day 2: Monday, December 9th, 1pm ET
Day 3: Tuesday, December 10th, 1pm ET
Final Table: Wednesday, December 11th, 5pm ET
