A total of 666 players qualified to day 2, with "diiiaaazzz" commanding the chip lead with 7,485,521. After this, they played 11 hours on August 3, and the final table was set the next day. 432 players cashed from $4,840 to $1,542,024. The unfortunate bubble player was RainerMitAI.

WPN The Venom

The Venom $7M became a unique tournament in WPN history thanks to the massive assistance and prize pool and the fact that it clashed with other major tournament series like WSOP Online and WPT World Online Championships.

Sixty-four players qualified for day 3; ElLoboCinco was the chip leader with 47,039,122 chips. The final table was played on August 5 with only eight players, with the following stacks at the beginning compared to the final prize received:
