This March, the Wynn Las Vegas will be hosting its popular Spring Classic poker series. Players will have access to 16 events and over $2.5 million in total prize money. On the schedule are several exciting events, including two tournaments that feature $1 million guarantees. The 2020 Wynn Classic was a success, and the 2021 version is expected to be just as popular among players. The Las Vegas casino will host the series from March 3-22.
The Big Events
The two options offering $1 million in prize money are probably going to be the most popular among players. The first on the schedule is the $1 million Championship event, featuring a $3,500 buy-in. Players will have 40,000 chips and blinds will change every hour. The tournament has two starting flights, March 12 and March 13. Day 2 kicks off on March 14. The final table will run on March 15 and determine a winner.
The second poker tournament takes place the next weekend and has a $1,600 buy-in. Players will have 30,000 in chips to start and blinds will change every hour as well. This event has three starting flights, March 18-20. Each flight will start at noon. Day 2 is scheduled for March 21 and Day 3 is set for March 22.
The schedule is filled with plenty of formats and structures to meet every player’s needs. Additional events on the schedule include the Kickoff Event, which has a $600 buy-in. The guaranteed prize pool for this event is $250,000.
On March 11, the series will host a High Roller, with a $10,500 buy-in. After that, players can take part in three Survivor events. Players will be able to earn trophies for each win, except for the survivor tournaments and satellites.
The High Roller event will provide an added bonus for early signups. Players who register early will see the $500 entry fee waived. On top of that, there is a Super Satellite planned at the Nevada casino for March 10 at 6 pm. This satellite has a buy-in of $1,025 + $75 and offers seats to the event.
Following COVID-19 Protocols
As the Wynn Spring Classic takes place, the casino will follow all COVID-19 protocols. Face coverings must be worn at all times by staff members and players. A face mask can be removed, but only to take a drink.
Hand sanitizer will be available at the poker table as well as throughout the poker room. High-traffic touchpoints will be sanitized each hour and the poker table will be as well when a new player sits down. Playing cards and chips are also going to be sanitized regularly.
Each player will be divided by plexiglass to promote social distancing.
