The Venom PKO $5M GTD: satellites start on April 29

This year, WPN is a bit late with the spring The Venom event in PKO format: Day 1A starts on May 13. The Venom PKO $5M GTD is very similar to its predecessors - the main difference is the Venom Fever satellites structure. Will they help the tournament form a record prize pool again?

The Venom PKO $5M GTD: satellites start on April 29

4th edition

The flagship tournament of Winning Poker Network (WPN) has been losing popularity since the second half of last year. The Venom PKO edition has had the following prize pools since its launch:

  1. November 2020 – $6,777,500. 
  2. May 2021 – $7,160,000.
  3. September 2021 – $5,802,500. 

The fourth edition of The Venom PKO $5M GTD will take place in May 2022.

The possibility of an overlay, like what happened to the "big brother" that featured a $10M guarantee, is not high this time. Still, an alarming trend is clearly evident. How is the network going to reverse it?


There are no changes in this regard. As before, The Venom will have a total of 4 flights on Fridays and Sundays:

  • Day 1A – May 13.
  • Day 1B – May 15.
  • Day 1C – May 20.
  • Day 1D – May 22.

Flights are scheduled to start at 19:05 CET. You can play all of them, but only your best result would count for Day 2. The structure will be very deep: starting stack - 187.7BB blinds levels - 20 minutes, late registration period - 18 levels (unlimited re-entries allowed). Day 1 will last until the end of level 28 (9 hours 20 minutes).

Days 2 and 3 will take place on May 23 and 24, respectively. The final table will be played on May 25.


The qualifiers started on April 24, when the first Beast & SnC - The Venom MEGA - 20 Seats GTD took place. Daily step satellites will start tomorrow, April 29 (their structure is unchanged compared to the previous The Venom PKO).

The Venom Fever direct qualifiers will run until May 22 - you can check the full schedule here

Here's the list of changes:

  1. The average buy-in has become less - $71.7 instead of $101.2 (buy-ins range from $32 to $290).
  2. The total number of satellites has been reduced from 209 to 169 during the same three weeks.
  3. The total number of guaranteed tickets has increased from 574 to 757, along with decreased buy-ins (4.48 tickets GTD per satellite on average, compared to 2.7 at the end of last year).
  4. The number of satellites with 10-20 tickets GTD has increased from 8 to 27.

You can qualify for the satellites via steps, which start from freerolls.

The organizers of the first The Venom PKO $5M GTD in 2022 decided to offer 183 more tickets via Fever satellites and make their buy-ins more affordable. These extra entries should provide an additional $507,500 to the prize pool. 

We will find out how successful this idea will be and whether it will lead to a hidden overlay at the end of May.
