After successfully smashing the $5 million GTD and earning a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title with the recent event, the operator announces an even bigger one.
WPN and its most popular poker rooms like PokerKing and Americas Cardroom ran the biggest US-facing online tournament since Black Friday in form of the Venom, which concluded yesterday, with Rafael “TheBigKid“ Moraes coming out on top.
Final results of the events
The Brazilian grinder took home $1,050,559.50. Since they paid out the prize in Bitcoin, they earned the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest cryptocurrency jackpot in an online poker tournament.
"We’re excited for “TheBigKid“ our $1,050,559.50 first-place winner in our $5 Million Venom,” said WPN spokesperson Michael Harris. “Earning the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title means it wasn’t just an online poker tournament, it was history in the making,” he added.
Even though they "only" guaranteed a $5 million prize pool for the event, the Venom reached much bigger heights with a $6,382,500 final prize pool.
Encouraged by the success of the event, WPN has already scheduled another Venom event for November. The Venom 2.0 will be held in late November through to December, with four starting days from November 27 to December 8.
