The first day will kick off two events - the $500 casino employees NL Hold'Em event and a $5,000 buy-in 8-handed NL Hold 'Em tourney.
There are some interesting notes to this year's slate:
- Event #6, beginning on June 1, is dubbed the "Millionaire Maker" event. It is a $1,500 NL Hold 'Em tourney with a single re-entry, but the prize pool structure will be altered so that first prize is at least $1,000,000.
- Every Saturday at noon, there will be a $1,000 NL Hold 'Em tourney and a $1,500 NL Hold 'Em tourney kicking off for a bracelet. These events may draw a higher number of first-timers than usual, and increase attendance all through the Series.
- The "One-Drop" event last year, with a million-dollar buy-in, has been altered so that the buy-in for the "Big One for One Drop" is now $111,111. That event will begin on June 26. There will also be a "Little One for One Drop" event with a buy-in of $1,111 starting on July 3 with a maximum of four re-buys. Part of the proceeds from both events go to the charity ONE Drop.
- The $50,000 buy-in Players' Championship will begin on June 30.
- The Ladies tournament has been altered in structure after several males have tried to enter the past couple of years. The tourney will have a $1,000 buy-in for ladies - but if any man wishes to enter it will cost them $10,000.
- The $10,000 buy-in Main Event will kick off on July 6 and run until a final table is set on July 15. There will be three starting days and the starting flights will merge on July 11. The final table, or November Nine, will re-convene on November 4-5 to determine the final champion.
