There were 90 bracelet events. To celebrate the 50th WSOP there was a $50,000 No Limit Hold'em event as well as the Big 50, a $500 buy-in No Limit Hold'em event with a guaranteed $5 million prize pool and $1 million for the winner. There was also a tournament open only to past WSOP bracelet winners. A short deck tournament was also held for the first time. All No Limit Hold'em events employed the Big Blind Ante format.

The $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event began on July 3 and concluded on July 16. The structure of the Main Event was changed, with players now receiving 60,000 chips at the start of the tournament, up from 50,000 in 2018.[1]

Robert Campbell won two bracelets to earn Player of the Year honors. Daniel Negreanu was originally believed to have won the award for the third time, but it was later found that he was erroneously credited with a cash in an event where he didn't finish in the money. When points for that event were taken away, Negreanu finished third behind Campbell and the 2018 winner, Shaun Deeb.[2]
