By Bob Garcia
Yesterday was anything but a regular Sunday at Americas Cardroom. We had Day 1B of the $5 Million Venom PKO, plus we awarded five packages to the WSOP in Vegas. That was on top of our regular huge slate of tourneys.
Read all about it in our Sunday Recap for May 15th.

We guaranteed five $12,500 packages to the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas yesterday and awarded five. Each player gets $10,000 for the WSOP Main Event buy-in plus another $2,500 for travel expenses. They can also choose to just keep the cash. Congrats to yesterday’s WSOP Takedown promo winners:
