The 2019 World Series of Poker is just around the corner. The 50th running of the donks in Vegas will take place at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas. You can play cash games, bracelet events, satellites, or just hang out gawking on the rail. For the special 50th birthday of the WSOP, there will be 89 bracelets up for grabs (up from 78 last year). At least nine of those can be won online at WSOP.com. And just like the last couple of years, there is no more November Nine. The WSOP Main Event will begin and end in July. The final table will be spread out over three days as per usual (9 to 6, 6 to 3, and 3 to 1) starting on Sunday, July 14 and ending on Tuesday, July 16.

It seems like just yesterday that John Cynn won the 2018 WSOP Main Event in a marathon affair that seemed like it would never end. Cynn faded a field of 7,874 runners to win $8.8 million. Will the numbers recede this year? Or can the Main Event actually close in on 8,000 runners again? I guess we'll find out in two months, eh?

The Chip Reese Trophy is up for grabs in the $50K Poker Players Championship, which begins on Monday June 24. The $100K High Roller is on Thursday, July 11. And the Main Event begins with three flights starting on July 3. Those are the biggest key dates that you should know about.

The 50th anniversary of the WSOP includes a couple special events including the BIG 50 with only a $500 buy-in and a $5 million guaranteed prize pool has four flights. Also, Event #71 SALUTE TO WARRIORS is a $500 NL event with proceeds donated to the USO and other veteran organizations.

Near the end of the series, there's Event #81 BRACELET WINNERS ONLY, which is a $1,500 NL special event open only to previous bling winners.

For all of you ballas out there, the series has four High Rollers including the $100K High Roller, $50K High Roller, $25K PLO High Roller, and an ONLINE High Roller event with a $3,200 buy-in.

At least 16 events have a $10K buy-in, including the Main Event Championship. Among the notable $10K events this year are the first-ever Short Deck NL event, along with the 10K Dealer's Choice (6-Max) and the wooly and wild 10K 6-handed NL.

The WSOP will continue its branded events which is simply printing money for the beancounters. The MILLY MAKER returns along with the MARATHON, MONSTERSTACK, COLOSSUS, CRAZY EIGHTS, and the CLOSER.

If you are looking for cheap events (under 1K), the COLOSSUS Running of the Donks has only a $400 price tag. And the 50th anniversary event, aka the BIG 50, is only $500. The Crazy Eights has an $888 buy-in. Also, eight ONLINE events at WSOP.com are 1K or under with one as low as $400. Yeah, you can bink a bracelet event and some bling for only $400.

There's also several Deepstack events with buy-in under 1K including Event #25 $600 PLO Deepstack, Event #37 $800 NL Deepstack, and Event #42 $600 Mixed NL/PLO Deepstack.

At least nine online bracelets will be awarded in 2019. Sundays have always been a popular day to grind and the WSOP.com made sure to include seven Sunday events. The ONLINE events include a $1K Championship and a $3,200 HIGH ROLLER. There's also events in the $400, $500, and $600 range with one PLO affair.

As per usual, the WSOP kicks off with the $565 Employees NL event. There's also the $1,000 SENIORS event on Thursday, June 13 and the $1K SUPER SENIORS is on Monday, June 17. The LADIES NL event kicks off on Thursday, June 20.

And of course, the ONE DROP charity event returns with the Little One for One Drop, which has a $1,111 buy-in.

According to rumors that the Rio will be sold, this might be the last time the WSOP is played out at the Rio this year, so don't miss out.

Here's a complete list of bling winners the last few summers: 2018 WSOP Bracelet Winners, 2017 WSOP Bracelet Winners, and 2016 WSOP Bracelet Winners.
