Step Tournaments

Some good stacks of cash are waiting for you to get them!

A series of multiple satellites and step tournaments can lead you to massive prizes across multiple tournament series. You can now enroll into exclusive step tournaments for the chance of winning a seat at the legendary $6M Venom.


The STEP TOURNAMENT concept serves the purpose of a satellite tournament to a larger event. Each step tournament has a specific amount of guaranteed seats, or tickets that will decrease the original main event ticket buy-in. Each Step Tournament series has a few stages, also known as step events, that grant access to the next step, or – a direct ticket to the main event. Usually, the rules are pretty simple: top finishers will receive a ticket to the next step.
