One of the larger events of the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP) will fill the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino Wednesday morning with the fifth installment of The Colossus set to kick off at 10 a.m. local time in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Event #61: $400 COLOSSUS No-Limit Hold’em has become one of the signature tournaments of the WSOP for the past four years with the field reaching as much as 22,374 back in its inaugural event in 2015.

A few changes have been made to The Colossus this year, aside from the buy-in. This year, there will be only two starting days, with the first kicking off at 10:00 a.m. local time today. Day 1's will play 16 levels, each lasting 40 minutes, with 20-minute breaks every three levels. Late registration will be open until the start of Level 13, allowing one re-entry per player, per flight. Players will receive a 75-minute dinner break after the ninth level which will be approximately 4:40 p.m. local time.

Another change to The Colossus involves players' starting stacks. Players will begin with 40,000 in chips compared to the 5,000 in previous years. Blinds will start at 100/100 and will end when they are 3,000/5,000 with a 5,000 big blind ante. Anyone able to survive the first 16 levels of The Colossus and bag a stack will return for Day 2 action slated for 11 a.m. Friday, June 28th.

Last year, a top prize of $1,000,000 was guaranteed to its victor Roberly Felicio who bested a field of 13,070 hopefuls to join the prestigious club that includes; 2017 winner,Thomas Pomponio, 2016 winner, Ben Keeline, and the inaugural title-holder, Cord Garcia, in 2015. The size of the field has shrunk since its inception but the top-prize has grown. Felicio, Pomponio, and Keeline were benefactors of the guaranteed first-place prize while Garcia's cut of the debut year's prizepool was $638,880.

Lima continued for 1,400 and Loghin called. French player Loghin then checked the {10-Diamonds} turn and Lima bet 3,000.

Loghin thought for a moment before check-raising to 8,000. Lima called.

The river was the {j-Hearts}, bringing four to a straight on the board. Both players checked. Loghin turned over {7-Clubs}{7-Spades} for a rivered straight and Lima inspected the board before ultimately relinquishing his hand.

Anyone Else Want to Make a Heart Flush?

Nível 2 : 100/200, 0 ante

After the player in the cutoff opened to 500, Francisco Trujillo raised to 1,700 on the button and his opponent called.

The pair saw the {5-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{k-Spades} flop and Trujillo's continuation bet was check-called by his opponent.

The turn was the {8-Hearts}. It checked to Trujillo who bet 2,400 and that was enough to take down the pot. He flashed {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts} to the rail for a flopped top pair and turned flush.

A short while later at a different table there was a {j-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{6-Hearts} board spread between two players. With around 3,000 in the middle, the first player bet 2,500 before Jon Gunter raised in position to 7,000.

His opponent thought, shuffled his chips and thought some more before calling. Gunter turned over {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs} for the nut flush and took down the pot.
