The *2015 World Series of Poker* is the 46th annual World Series of Poker
(WSOP). It was held from May 27-July 14 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino
in Paradise, Nevada. There were 68 bracelet events, culminating in the
$10,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event, which began on July 5. The November
Nine concept returned for an eighth year. Instead of a $10 million
guaranteed first prize for the Main Event, however, there were now be 1,000
guaranteed payouts.^[1]

New tournament formats included the $565 Colossus No Limit Hold'em event,
the lowest buy-in event at the WSOP in 35 years. The tournament featured
four starting flights with a re-entry option for each flight and a
$5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool. The $1,000 WSOP.com No Limit Hold'em
event awarded the first WSOP bracelet in an online tournament, with the
final six players playing at the Rio on July 4. A bounty tournament was
also featured, with a player earning $500 for each elimination. A Super
Seniors event was also added, open to players 65 or older. In addition to
these new formats, the structure for lower buy-in events was also altered
and featured five times the buy-in for a starting stack.^[2]
