There’s just less than a month to go before 2019 finally comes to an end and if you have been unlucky at the live poker tournament scene during the court of this year and are still looking to turn things around, then you still have an opportunity to do so.
December is among the busiest months for live poker in 2019, with a number of major poker tournaments happening all over the world. Whether you are a recreational player or an experienced pro, this month’s hectic poker schedule will keep you busy.
Here are some of the major poker tournaments taking place this December:
The Wynn Winter Classic  
First on this month’s live poker schedule is The Wynn Winter Classic, taking place at the Wynn in Las Vegas on December 2-22. The tournament has been a staple on the Vegas live tournament scene each year, but this will be the first time for the tour to take place during the winter months.
The Wynn Classic is best for low to mid-stakes players on the hunt for huge guarantees. If features 17 events, the main highlight of which is the $5,300 No-Limit Hold’em Championship (the biggest buy-in Main Event to take place at Wynn in more than five years) happening on December 18-20, which carries a massive $1.5 million guarantee.
The buy-ins for the event start at $300, and there will also be satellites running for the Championship Event which you can take part for just $400. This means you’ll have the chance to win big with just a small investment.
Three WSOP Circuit Events This Month
The hunt for the coveted gold WSOP Circuit ring is very much alive, as three Circuit events are running this month, starting with a stop at the IP Hotel & Casino in Biloxi on December 5-16. The tournament features a total of 13 events, with the main attraction being the $1,700 Main Event which was taken down last year by Tennessee’s Kevin Johnson for $127,319. There are also lots of side events with buy-ins of between $250 and $400 that you can take a shot at.
After Biloxi, the Circuit then heads over to Harrah’s Las Vegas on December 12-22. You can win a gold ring in each of the 14 events, including the $1,700 buy-in Main Event on December 19-21 which offers a massive $500,000 in guarantees.
What more, WSOP International Circuit Uruguay has just kicked off at Punta del Este with more than 10 events to choose from. The tournament will run through to December 14.
Satellites that award tournament dollars (T$) are running at partypoker. You can use those T$ to buy in to live events at the Circuit.
EPT Returns to Prague
The European Poker Tour is among the most well-attended poker tournaments in the world. It returns to Prague on December 7-17, bringing a total of 42 events that will surely make for a prestigious and massive festival.
Alongside an action-packed tournament schedule, players can also expect a number of exciting activities off the felt, which include a Christmas Players’ Party, exclusive tours, as well as extra prizes and giveaways. You can win your way to EPT Prague at a cheaper price by taking part in satellites sponsored by PokerStars, with buy-ins starting from as low as €1.10.
Partypoker LIVE Grand Prix
There’s not just one, but two partypoker LIVE Grand Prixs taking place this December — the first one takes place in Montreal on December 8-16,  followed by a second event in Sochi Russia on December 11-27.
