Planet Hollywood First to Release Summer 2020 Schedule

Planet Hollywood First to Release Summer 2020 Schedule

It may only be February, but the summer of 2020 is approaching. With the World Series of Poker having released the vast majority of its 2020 WSOP schedule already, other poker rooms can begin making their own decisions regarding summer tournament lineups.

The first one to release a comprehensive schedule was Planet Hollywood. Organizers are looking to host the Goliath 2020 from May 27 to July 8 on the Las Vegas Strip.

Interestingly, Planet Hollywood was the last of the Las Vegas poker rooms to release its schedule last year, but it is first to come out with a comprehensive lineup in 2020.

It is not the final version of the schedule yet, though. The Google Drive document labels it as the final draft, but it remains only a draft, as the Planet Hollywood Twitter account called it Version 1.0. The tweet noted that it is subject to change and open to feedback.

Goliath 2020 Schedule Highlights

The tournaments on the schedule are not yet numbered, a further indication that changes could alter it before the final version is released.

Last year, there were Goliath included 67 events, which culminated in a $1,525 NLHE Main Event with a $1 million guarantee that started on July 2. That looks to remain the same this year but start a few days earlier.

Let’s look at some of the highlights on the schedule thus far:
