Wynn Summer Classic Schedule

The final of the major summer series schedules from Las Vegas, Nevada is here with the release of the 2018 Wynn Summer Classic. A total of 37 events line the schedule with all No Limit Hold’em offerings on the table. Of the 37 tournaments schedule, all but one is No Limit.

The Wynn Summer Classic runs from June 1 through July 16, featuring more than $7 million in guarantees including several three-day seven-figure guaranteed events.

The series takes places inside the Wynn Poker Room as well as added space in the Wynn Sportsbook.

Big Blind Ante across the board

The big blind ante format is the most notable addition to tournament poker in 2018. Most series across Las Vegas are offering big blind antes in a few of their respective events. The Wynn, however, is all-in on the big blind ante.

Since introducing it in events at the end of 2017, the property has pivoted toward including it in all non-satellite events. That trend is in form for the Wynn Summer Classic as all main events with the exception of the Pot Limit Omaha tournament are using big blind ante.

Players have responded with a resounding ‘yes’ to big blind ante at the Wynn and the property has responded in turn.

Strong selection of single-day events

The majority of the Wynn Summer Classic’s schedule leans toward one-day events with all buy-in types represented. Single-day tournaments offer the $400, $550, and $1,100 buy-in variety with 30-minute levels in place across each and every one of them.

In total, there are 22 events of the $550 buy-in variety, nine for $1,100 and three in the $400 category. The guarantees for the events vary between $50,000 and $200,000. All $550 Survivor events are $50,000 guaranteed.

The Pot Limit Omaha event falls on June 13 and is a $550 buy-in with a $100,000 guarantee.

Starting stacks start at 15,000 for $400 events, climb to 18,000 for the $550s and top out at 20,000 for the $1,100s.

The one-day events are scheduled for consecutive days of the same buy-in across most of the calendar. For example, from June 4-7, there are four straight $550 buy-in $100,000 guaranteed tournaments.

Multi-day events with big guarantees

The 2017 Wynn Summer Classic offered two multi-day events and brought in strong fields for both. The $1,100 $1,000,000 guarantee attracted 2,320 entrants and the $1,600 $1,000,000 guaranteed Wynn Championship drew 2,035 runners.

There are two multi-day $1,100 tournaments in 2018. Both offer three Day 1 flights and are scheduled to play until completion by the end of Day 2. All levels are 40 minutes for the entirety of the event and players open with a start bank of 20,000. The guarantee is $1 million for both.

The $1,600 Championship also features three starting flights with the first opening on July 9. Day 1 levels are 45 minutes before increasing to 60 on Day 2 and 75 on Day 3. The starting stack for that event is 25,000. This year’s Championship features a $1.5 million guarantee.

A few weeks ago, the $1,600 Wynn Spring Classic finale brought in a prize pool of $1.431 million for a guarantee of $1 million.

The Wynn offers satellites for all three of their multi-day events.
