The Wynn Signature SeriesThe Wynn Signature Series is returning to Las Vegas next year! The tournament will be among the first major live poker festivals to take place in 2020, offering a massive $1.3 million in guarantees. The luxurious Wynn resort and casino in Las Vegas will host the action from January 15 – February 2, 2020.

The main highlight of the 2020 Wynn Signature Series is the $1,100 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em Event taking place on January 23-26, where players get the chance to win a share of the massive $400,000 in guarantees.

The event has three starting flights which are scheduled to run on January 23-25. Players begin with 25,000 chips, played in 40-minute levels. Survivors will meet again on the final day on January 26, during which a winner will be crowned.

Wynn is also giving players the opportunity to take part in the $400,000 GTD event at a lower price by running two Super Satellites which require just $200 as entry fee. The two satellites will take place during Day 1A and Day1B of the massive event.

A similar event also took place during the Wynn Fall Classic in October this year. Phoenix native Sanket Desai came out on top of a 473-entry field to take home the lion’s share of the prize worth $70,306. The other players who walked away with a slice of the $463,162 in guaranteed prize pool included Eric Blair (2nd), Eric Baldwin (3rd), Tamas Lendvai (4th) and David Jackson (5th).

$200K Guaranteed Event

Right after the $400K guaranteed event, another $200K GTD event is set to take place, with a buy-in of just $600. It will also feature three starting flights running on January 27-29.

An event of the same size took place at the Wynn earlier this year, which saw Brett Shaffer walk away with the top prize of $39,000 after a five-way deal with Tuan Mai, Tom Middleton, Tim McDermott and Nick Jivkov. The event attracted a total of 599 players to generate a $313,396 prize pool.

Other Variants Also Available

While the schedule for the upcoming tournaments features mostly No-Limit Hold’em events, there are other variations available, including the $40K GTD opening event on January 15 which takes a survivor format. It carries a buy-in of $400. The following day, a $300 Limit Omaha Hi-Low 8-or Better will also take place, with $20,000 in guaranteed prize pool on offer.

The same guarantee is also up for grabs at another Omaha tournament featuring a buy-in of $400, on January 21. For the full schedule of the tournament, do check out the Wynn website.
