2019 Wynn Summer Classic To Run Same Time As WSOP
The 2019 Wynn Summer Classic is one of the most anticipated poker tournaments of this summer. The full schedule for the tournament which kicks off on May 30 and runs through July 16 is now available.
The 2019 Wynn Summer Classic features dozens of No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha events, spread across a month and half of jam-packed poker action and some massive prize pools.
The main highlight of the this year’s tournament is the $1,600 No-Limit Hold’em Championship taking place on July 11-15, with three starting flights. After the starting days, there will be two subsequent playdown days, with the guarantee now being increased to $2 million from $1.5 million in 2018.
There are other high-value events to watch out for, including the $1,100 No-Limit Hold’em with three starting flights, scheduled for June. The event, which happens on June 11-13, carries a seven-figure guarantee of $1.5 million. Players who want to take part are advised to register early as this event has been absolutely jam-packed with participants in the last few years.
PLO fans will be delighted to know that there will also be a $1,100 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship event taking place on June 25-26, with a massive guarantee of $500,000. Aside from that, there are a number of $500 and $1,100 side events running throughout the schedule, with guarantees of up to $250,000.
List Of Exciting Events
One notable change to this year’s schedule though is that the semi-regular $500 survivor tournaments appear to have been dropped. However, there is still a great list of exciting events that cater to players with different bankrolls.
A $400 buy-in Ladies No-Limit Hold’em event is also taking place on June 25, with a $50,000 guarantee, while a $1,100 Seniors No-Limit Hold’em also happens on July 7, featuring $250,000 in guarantees. Players can win big in one day by joining a few $1,600 single-day events which have a $350,000 guarantee.
Wynn vs. WSOP
The 2019 Wynn Summer Classic runs simultaneously with the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) tournament series. The WSOP is by far the most popular poker tournament in the world and will draw poker players from all over the world.
However, if you want to take a break from the WSOP or if things are not going your way at the Rio, then players can turn their attention to Wynn Summer Classic and still take a shot at some huge payouts.
