Besides the Venetian, more tournaments are coming to the Strip this month. Back in April, Wynn announced that the 2021 Wynn Summer Classic rolls out on May 27. With a total of 30 events, the Summer Classic will run through July 13, featuring the headliner Wynn Millions which holds $10,000,000 guaranteed. With that in mind, the most awaited event for poker fans, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) was unfortunately postponed to September due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
