Wynn Summer Classic Adds to Vegas Summer Poker Options

The list of poker tournament schedules for the summer of 2019 in Las Vegas continues to grow. The Wynn Summer Classic was a highly anticipated addition to that list.

In the past several years, Wynn has become a solid competitor for poker players throughout the year, but its tournament series are a force of their own. The release of an extensive summer schedule shows that it wants to compete for the higher-stakes players, as quite a few of its offerings are at the $1K buy-in level. The guarantees are quite sizeable as well, so Wynn is looking to garner solid player pools throughout the May-July series.

The Wynn joins these other Las Vegas casinos in releasing poker tournament schedules for the summer:

World Series of Poker at Rio

ARIA Poker Classic at ARIA

Grand Poker Series at Golden Nugget

Binion’s Summer Series at Binion’s

Orleans Sumer Poker Series at Orleans

DeepStack Championship Poker Series at Venetian

In contrast with some of the other schedules the Wynn Summer Poker Classic tends to offer one major tournament per day and avoids the lower buy-in evening events. The focus is on one big tournament per day with buy-ins ranging from $500 to $1K. While this is higher than most others in Las Vegas during this period, the guarantees are also substantial, as they start at $50K and go up to $2 million.

All in all, there will be 42 tournaments from the end of May through the middle of July, and more than $11 million in listed in total guarantees.
