Many poker players can't wait for the World Series of Poker next year since it marks its 50th anniversary, and so they anticipate the release of its 2019 schedule - what golden opportunities lie in wait for them?

In the 2018 WSOP, a record 123,865 entries has been made, which created the total prize money worth $266.8 million.

The most prestigious poker festival that takes place during summer shall return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas beginning from May 28 to July 16, 2019. Even though the full schedule is still on the drawing board, the official dates have been announced on December 20 so interested players can make their preliminary preparations on upcoming events they would like to potentially join in. The early announcement included official information on seven key events throughout the series.

The poker games shall run 24 hours a day all through the seven-week series, where buy-ins for tournaments shall start for as little as $70.

A new tournament that highlights the 50th anniversary of the WSOP has been catching everybody's attention - the "Big 50" - a $500 buy-in NLHE event with a $5 million guaranteed prize pool, and a guaranteed $1 million prize to the top winner. The event, scheduled from May 30 to June 2, shall be rake-free for every player's initial entry which means all of their $500 goes directly to the prize pool.

WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said, "We're excited to commence our golden event. We expect our opening weekend Big 50 event to be one of the largest in our history, and certainly one of the best value tournaments ever offered. This is part of our concerted plans to make the 2019 WSOP a better value all-around."

Other officially finalized events shown in the press release include: the $1,500 buy-in Millionaire Maker, the Seniors NLHE, Double Stack NLHE, Monster Stack NLHE, Crazy Eights NLHE, and the $10,000 WSOP Main Event that has three starting flights running from July 3 to 5.

The full event schedule for the 50th WSOP would be released early next year.

Nearly 267 millions dollars total prizes in these tournaments sounds very good.
It's incredible how these players are registering 5 or 6 months before the game starts.
WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart need to talk with the poker room representatives for more satellites. It would be a beautiful surprise for many players, to visit Las Vegas and to play poker.
It's a great opportunity for many players who have no money but they want to win a seat. Cool

It was a year with many big prizes in all the tournaments.
And from the looks of it the 2019 will bring even more prizes and new
games, with high guaranteed prizes, like the one with 500 USD buy in and 1 million
for the winner.
It is going to be a rich year in general in the poker world.

It seems to me that every year the amount of the prize pool will only increase ... the world inflation and popularization of poker are to blame for this .... people are playing more and more ... more and more people are winning their first bracelet .... so many people got The first bracelet this year ..... maybe I'll ever get a bracelet ... haha
