One of the WSOP's signature preliminary events is getting a makeover for 2019 (WSOP photo).

Four weeks after releasing the dates and a few select events for the 2019 World Series of Poker, WSOP organizers announced another 13 events that will make up the schedule including most of the signature branded events including the Colossus, Marathon, Little One for One Drop, and The Closer.

The Colossus, which was immensely popular when it debuted in 2015 as a $565 buy-in, is now a $400 event after three straight years of declining attendance. In previous years, the Colossus has had upwards of eight starting flights. The 2019 version will feature just two, one of June 26, the second on June 27. Players will get 40,000 chips and levels will be 40 minutes long.

Colossus Field Sizes

Year Field Size
2015 22,374
2016 21,613
2017 18,054
2018 13,070

The newest addition to the schedule is the $1,000 Mini Main Event. Featuring the same starting stack as the $10,000 Main Event, the tournament will use the same blinds structure but with 30-minute levels. The Mini Main Event is slated to be a two-day long event leading directly into the Main Event.

“Things are starting to come together on the rest of the 2019 WSOP playing schedule,” said WSOP Vice President Jack Effel. “Being this is our 50th running, we are doing everything we can to make this year’s iteration bigger, better and more valuable for players.”

Other staple events that are now officially on the 2019 schedule are the Casino Employees event, the Ladies Event, the Seniors Event and the $1,000 version of the Tag Team event.
