The schedule for the 2019 World Series of Poker has been announced.  Las Vegas is the location.It is now less than four months until the biggest poker tournament series in the world, the World Series of Poker, gets underway in Las Vegas.

This year will be the 50th anniversary of the World Series of Poker, and tournament organizers have some special celebrations planned for players. This includes the "Big 50", which is a $500 entry tournament with $5 million guaranteed and a rake-free first entry, as well as a $50,000 buy-in High Roller event.

This year's World Series of Poker will run from May 28th until July 16th and will take place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Given the big events that tournament organizers have planned for this year, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see this year's World Series of Poker set new attendance and prize pool records.


Here are the highlights of this year's schedule:

-Big 50 (first entry is rake-free, $5 million guaranteed prize pool)
-50th Annual High Roller ($50,000 entry)
-$10,000 Short Deck NLHE
-Millionaire Maker ($1,500 Buy-in)
-$2,620 NLHE Marathon (100 minute levels)
-$600 Mixed NLHE/PLO Deep-Stacked
-$1,500 Monster Stack
-$50,000 Poker Players Championship
-$400 Colossus
-$888 Crazy Eights NLHE ($888,888 guaranteed to winner)

-$500 Salute to Warriors
-$10,000 NLHE Main Event
-$1,111 Little One for One Drop
-$100,000 NLHE High Roller
-$1,500 The Closer


As per usual, there is a mix of events that will appeal to professional and casual players. Events that target casual players tend to get underway earlier in the day, while bigger buy-in events and/or less popular poker variants tend to get underway in the late afternoon.
