The 54th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) is set to make a grand return to the Las Vegas Strip in the summer of 2023. Running from May 30th to July 18th, this highly anticipated series will be hosted across two venues: the newly renamed Horseshoe Las Vegas (formerly Bally’s) and Paris Las Vegas. Excitement is building as all indications point to this being the biggest and most remarkable WSOP to date.
With a record-breaking 95 bracelet events on the schedule, the 2023 WSOP offers a diverse range of buy-ins, catering to players of all budgets. From the $300 events to the high-stakes $250,000 tournaments, there’s something for everyone in this poker extravaganza. Last year, the WSOP drew over 197,000 participants from around the world, competing for a staggering $350 million in prize pools. This year, organizers expect even larger attendance numbers, with over 150,000 square feet of gaming space and 600+ poker tables available between the two venues.
Notable events to watch out for include the thrilling $1,000 buy-in Mystery Millions, featuring a guaranteed million-dollar bounty, and the high-stakes $3 million guaranteed Gladiators of Poker tournament. However, the highlight of the entire series remains the prestigious $10,000 buy-in Main Event. Scheduled from July 3rd to 17th, this iconic tournament attracts the best poker talent in the world. The first of four consecutive Day 1 flights kicks off the action, leading up to the final table, where a world champion will be crowned on July 17th inside the Thunderdome at the Horseshoe Las Vegas.
In addition to the bracelet events, players will have the opportunity to participate in daily satellite tournaments held across the Strip, providing affordable pathways to entry into the coveted bracelet events for as little as $10. The Daily Deep Stack tournaments will run every day from June 1st to July 17th, with buy-ins ranging from $200 to $400.
Registration for the WSOP is now open, accepting both in-person and online sign-ups at wsop.com. US players are required to present valid identification, while international players must provide formal proof of address, such as a bank statement or utility bill.
