The $5 million Venom event on “Americas Cardroom”:Americas Cardroom had no trouble crushing the guarantee, drawing a field of 2,553 entrants in the $2,500+$150 tournament over the three starting days. The massive turnout set up a prize pool worth $6,382,500, of which $1,050,559 was reserved for the eventual winner.
In the end, the title went to Brazilian poker pro Rafael Moraes, who was playing under the name ‘TheBigKid’ during his title run. This was the largest score of Moraes’ career. He previously took third in the 2017 EPT Grand Final high roller for $648,117.
