Finalists of the biggest tournament The Venom at PokerKing

Two millionaires are coming to PokerKing tonight thanks to The Venom $ 10M GTD event. There are 8 participants left and in today’s material on Pokeroff we will tell you more about each one in more detail.

How the Venom tournament was held

In four entrance flights, the event for $ 2,650 managed to collect 3,930 entries – just short of breaking the $ 10,000,000 guarantee. We talked about each of the flights in our telegram channel Pokeroffru and on the website [1A, 1B, 1C, 1D]… By the way, before the last entry day, 1D seemed to smell like a huge overlay, but we managed to attract another 1598 entries, so it was bypassed.

After Day 2, only 70 players remained in the game, including several Russian speakers:

  • 111aaabdy – 98 BB
  • } l {uBoTHOE – 57 ББ
  • Arseny “josef_shvejk” Karmatsky – 50.7 BB
  • Anatoly “NL_Profit” Filatov – 45.5 BB

The third day ended at the top-8 stage. None of ours made it to her -} l {uBoTHOE flew 60th place ($ 15K), Karmatsky in 52nd place ($ 17.5K), Filatov at 50th ($ 17.5K), and 111aaabdy got the farthest – 27 place ($ 30K).

Returning to his “money” hobbies, Chen also worked in trading, blockchain, sports betting and programming.

On his business card site, Tommy Chen wrote that he is now a full-stack programmer and is ready to take on commercial projects.

A character with dubious chances of winning. Started playing on WPN six years ago and immediately got a $ 175K + boost before taking a break. He returned in 2020 and since then he has occasionally played ABI330 in a small plus. Everything looks clearer on the chart.
