It is the start of the final weekend at the 2019 World Series of Poker Europe and it begins with Day 1f in Event #15: €550 Colossus No-Limit Hold'em. There have been five starting flights completed already with nearly 700 total entries recorded. Compared to the previous flights, today is expected to be quite busier with the first of two flights starting at 12 p.m., the latter beginning at 6 p.m.
While the majority of players will have the goal of grabbing a share of the €1,000,000 guaranteed prizepool, much of the poker world has their interest in the WSOP Player of the Year race. This is the final tournament with points up for grabs and all of the contenders will be looking to run up a stack for Day 2. None of the contenders have confirmed their spots in the Day 2 field as of yet so the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Robert Campbell, Shaun Deeb, and now possibly Anthony Zinno and Dario Sammartino should be expected today.

Each player will begin with a starting stack of 25,000 chips with the blinds beginning at 100/100 and a 100 big blind ante. The levels will be 30 minutes in length with a 15-minute break after every four levels. A total of 18 levels will be played in each of the starting flights as players make their way into the money. A player may cash in multiple flights but may only bring one stack into Day 2.
Late registration will remain open for the first 12 levels with a single re-entry option per flight available. Follow along with the PokerNews live reporting team for all of the updates throughout the entire event, and to find out how the Player of the Year race unfolds.
