Are you a fan of winning poker tournaments? Would you like to start a collection of miniature models of Las Vegas casinos? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then grab your diaries because the Wynn Spring Classic is back!
The Wynn Spring Classic series, which is happening now through March 18, features 24 events, one more than last year. What's more, PokerNews is slated to live report two of those tournaments, both boasting a seven-figure guarantee.
Two $1m Guaranteed Events
Last year's festival had $2.8 million in guaranteed prize pools, but this year that figure is increased to just shy of $4 million with not one, but two $1,000,000 guaranteed events.
The first is a $1,600 buy-in tournament with 30,000 starting chips, 60-minute levels and three starting flights from March 5-7. PokerNews will pick up live updates from that tournament starting on Day 2.
The second is the $5,300 Wynn Classic Championship Event. This three-day event starts on March 16 with 50,000 starting chips and 60-minute levels. It will be live reported by PokerNews from start to finish.
In addition to the two events with seven-figure guarantees, there are 22 other events coming with guarantees that range from $15,000 to $500,000.
They include two $550 Seniors (50+) Events, a $1,600 PLO Bounty tournament and a $500,000 guaranteed $600 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em event with three separate starting flights.
Mixed Game players should also pay attention to the schedule, with 8-Game, Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better and Pot-Limit Omaha/No-Limit Hold'em mix also on the schedule.
