Wynn Summer Classic WPT Alpha8

The Wynn Summer Classic is returning to Wynn Las Vegas and will take place May 22-July 17 with nearly a hundred events with buy-ins at every level and more $37 million in guaranteed prize pools, including the $10 million guaranteed Wynn Summer Championship.

Once again, the Wynn Summer Classic will feature the World Poker Tour (WPT) Alpha8 Trifecta, a sequence of three $25,000 buy-in tournaments that will be sure to draw many of the best players in the game. Last time around, Jonathan Jaffe ($1,537,600), Steve O’Dwyer ($1,009,520), and Ren Lin ($1,045,781) took down the three events.

“Last year, WPT witnessed a grand resurgence of the Alpha8 brand, which all began with a successful summer event at Wynn Las Vegas,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska said in a press release. “We are taking it a step further this time around by hosting three Alpha8 high rollers at this amazing venue.”

$37 Million in Guarantees

Each of the WPT Alpha8 high rollers will run as two-day events as follows:

  • June 25-26
  • July 3-4
  • July 10-11

We are honored to include the WPT Alpha8 Trifecta as a part of our Wynn Summer Classic,” said Ryan Beauregard, Executive Director of Poker Operations at Wynn Las Vegas. “The Alpha8 moniker has an impressive history of past champions, and I look forward to treating each and every player to the full Wynn player experience.”

There are plenty of other highlights among the 98 tournaments on the Wynn Summer Classic schedule, including events that are a little more affordable.

May 28 will mark the first of six flights in a $1,100 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em event with a $2 million guarantee attached. A little later in the series, there will be a $1,600 NLH event with three starting flights and a $2 million guarantee.

Another highlight on the schedule is the $1,600 Century PKO, an event that will introduce $10,000 bounties in a PKO format once the tournament gets down to 100 players.

The series will culminate with the $10,400 Wynn Summer Championship, an event that offers players three starting flights for a piece of the $10 guaranteed prize pool.
