The World Series of Poker (WSOP), the wealthiest, most famous, and longest-running poker series, today unveiled the daily event schedule for its 2023 series, which is building up to be the biggest and best WSOP of all time, with a tournament calendar likely to smash past records. The 54th annual WSOP comes to the Las Vegas Strip from May 30 to July 18, 2023, at Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, with more tables, greater diversity, and the greatest slate of bracelet events ever scheduled in its illustrious history.
The 2023 WSOP builds on the success of the 2022 tournament, which drew 197,626 players from more than 100 countries and produced a record-breaking $347.9 million total prize pool in its new home.
With 608 tables spread across more than 200,000 square feet of convention space, this summer’s event will have the highest capacity in series history, as well as 24/7 live cash game action, including a brand-new permanent hall of fame poker room at Horseshoe Las Vegas and the first-ever $300 price point tournament in WSOP history.
The $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship, often known as “The Main Event,” will return July 3-17 after attracting 8,663 players in 2022, the second-largest field in live poker history.
Ty Stewart, SVP & Executive Director of the WSOP, said:
“With the momentum generated from the WSOP’s debut on the Las Vegas Strip last year, we expect a record-breaking WSOP and World Championship at Paris and Horseshoe Las Vegas in 2023. If the Main Event is on your bucket list, this is the year to get to Vegas.”
