New tournament formats included the $565 Colossus No Limit Hold'em event, the lowest buy-in open event at the WSOP since the 1980 WSOP. 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]
