What is the Wynn Classic?

Few venues can pull off their own self-branded tournament series quite like The Wynn. The one-time festival has expanded into a series of “Wynn Classic” events held throughout the year, each offering different variants, buy-ins, etc.

When is the Wynn Classic?

There are several Wynn Classic events throughout the year. They’ve traditionally done three a year – The Wynn Spring Classic (March), The Wynn Summer Classic (May-July), and The Wynn Fall Classic (September-October) – but in 2019 added a fourth with The Wynn Winter Classic (December).

PokerNews and the Wynn Classic

Over the years, PokerNews has offered live updates from various Wynn Classic tournaments, including the inaugural Wynn Winter Classic and wildly popular The Wynn Millions.

History of the Wynn Classic

According to The Hendon Mob, the first-ever The Wynn Classic took place back in February/March 2007. The inaugural championship event featured a $10,000 buy-in and was won by Zachary Hyman for $729,033.

It was just a single festival each year through 2010, and then in 2011, the Wynn Summer Classic was added. The year after that, the Wynn Fall Classic was added and it became a three-times-a-year series until 2019, which is when the Wynn Winter Classic was added to the schedule.
