Twenty $10,000-Plus Championship Events
In addition to a series of affordable casual events, the 2019 schedule once again offers the most popular poker variants with buy-ins of $ 10,000 or more to attract the best players and high rollers from around the world.
Short Deck/Six Plus Holdem at the WSOP 2019
These include the very first WSOP short deck No Limit Hold’em, the popular 36-card variant that removes the twos and fives from the card deck. The $ 10,000 buy-in short deck event lasts four days and starts on Sunday, June 2, at 6:00 pm.
A 50th anniversary $ 50,000
Another program highlight celebrating the 50th anniversary of the WSOP is a $ 50,000 no-limit hold’em tournament where players start with 300,000 chips and play for up to an hour. This high roller is scheduled as a four-day event, starting at 3pm on Friday, May 31, with registration open until the start of Day 2.
2019 WSOP Main Event
One of the most anticipated events of the year, the $10,000 WSOP Main Event, takes place every day from July 3rd to 16th with a noon start time. Day A starts on Wednesday, July 3rd, Day B and C run on July 4th and July 5th respectively. Survivors of the first two days will participate in Day 2 AB on Saturday, July 6th, while the survivors of Day C will play Day 2C on Sunday, July 7th. All fields for Day 3 on Monday, July 8, are expected to reach the end of the day.
The main event is still a freeze-out format with no rebuys, but there are a few minor changes to the 2019 release. The players get instead of the usual 50,000, this time 60,000 chips and play with the big blind ante structure. Also new this year is that players can buy in until the start of the second day on 6 or 7 July at 12 o’clock at the main event.
A $1,000 Mini Main Event
New is the $ 1,000 Buy In Mini Main Event. The Mini Main Event takes place just two days before the start of the real Main Event worth 10,000$. On Monday the 01th July and Tuesday the 2th July all participants will start with 60,000 in tournament chips and have the same blind structure, but now with 30 instead of 120-minute levels.
Coloss now with a 400$ Buy In
The popular Colossus event is back. The starting days are on Wednesday, June 26, and on Thursday June 27. The Colossus is the lowest-priced gold bracelet event on the 2019 schedule, with a buy-in of 400$ what is 165$ less as last year.
1 Day Super Turbos
The Super Turbo Bounty events are scheduled one-day events. This is the only live event where it is possible to win a WSOP bracelet at one day. In the 1.000$ version, each player has a 300§ bounty, while in the $ 1,500 version, each player has a 500$ bounty.
New structures, big blind antes and a special event
To improve the “overall experience for the participants”, the WSOP announced on January 23 that many events would have larger start stacks and all events with Antes would play with a big blind.
As part of the change, for example the $ 1,500 No Limit Hold’em and Omaha events will have 25,000 starting stacks, a significant change from the 7,500 last year. This number itself was the product of a steady rise that once reflected the exact buy-in, $ 1,500 meant 1,500 chips. Now the stacks have been flattened considerably on various occasions, so the 1,500$ events and 5.000 dollar events are only 5,000 apart, with the latter requiring 30,000 stacks. Last year the 5.000 dollar events started with 25,000 stacks.
“It’s important that the modern World Series of Poker continues to evolve,” said WSOP Vice President Jack Effel. “People certainly like bigger start stacks, and we’re happy to do that while adding value.”
Schedule confirmed with low buy-in events
Low stakes players can look forward to an event with a 600$ and 800$ buy-in, similar to many other tournaments in the city of Las Vegas elsewhere.
On June 25, there is a 600$ Deepstack Championship No-Limit Hold’em Event, with 500,000$ guaranteed and a WSOP Main Event seat for the winner.
“We hope that everyone who loves poker will experience our big 50s,” Effel said in a press release. “We are confident that you will find one or two events that you like, and hopefully one that will allow you to lift the golden bracelet over your head at the end.”
