The focus of the poker world is on the Bahamas right now and the $25,000 PokerStars Players Championship, but the World Series of Poker doesn’t want us to forget the granddaddy of them all. On Wednesday, the WSOP released the dates of thirteen more events for the 50th anniversary of the annual poker festival.

Several of the tournaments in this batch are some of the very popular closed events, such as the $500 buy-in Casino Employees Event, the $1,000 Super Seniors, and the $1,000 Ladies Event.* Double Stack, Little One for One Drop, and the Marathon Event are also back for 2019.

A new event, starting on July 1st and running for two days is the $1,000 Mini Main Event. It is a warm-up of sorts for the $10,000 Main Event, starting two days before the showcase. It will mimic the structure of the Main Event except that the blind levels will be just 30 minutes long, as opposed to two hours (it would be tough to have the tournament be just two days with regular-length levels).

The Colossus is also returning, but it has been altered. It is just a two-flight event now, with the lowest buy-in in WSOP history: $400. It is also being pushed back nearly a month; all these changes are to make way for the $500 Big 50 event.

Below is a list of the most recent event reveals for the 2019 World Series of Poker. The complete schedule is expected sometime in the first quarter of the year.
