1) The Big 50

This event will feature a $500 buy-in, 50,000 starting chips and 50-minute levels.

There will be starting flights for this event scheduled for May 28th, May 29th, May 30th and May 31st. The field for this event should be absolutely massive.

2) $10,000 Main Event

The main event will have three starting flights - Wednesday, July 1st, Thursday, July 2nd and Friday, July 3rd.

The final table of this event is scheduled to take place from July 12th until July 14th.

3) Seniors No Limit Hold'em Championship

This will be a $1,000 buy-in, single re-entry tournament. The tournament will begin at 10 am on Thursday, June 18th and will run until Sunday, June 21st.


Tournament organizers always want to break last year's numbers, so you can safely assume that most or all of the signature events, including the Millionaire Maker, Crazy Eights and Colossus, will be making their returns in 2020.
