The 2019 World Series of Poker begins on May 29 and runs through July 16. The site, as it has been since 2005, is the Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Television coverage of the 2019 WSOP main event — poker’s world championship — goes from July 3 through July 16. There will be coverage on ESPN networks during every night of the tournament, with supplemental coverage provided by PokerCentral.

There are a number of significant changes and special events in store for the 2019 WSOP, from the adoption of a big blind ante for all no-limit hold’em events, to a slight increase in chip stack size for most events and the ability for players to enter the main event all the way up to the start of Day 2 of the tournament, on either July 6 or 7. For full details into all of these changes, you can visit WSOP.com.

A record number of WSOP gold bracelets will be on the line in the summer of 2019. Here’s what we know about the schedule so far:
