The dates for the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) are already available. For the 54th season of the Series, additional tournaments have been added to the already packed calendar, which features the much-anticipated $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em “Main Event.”
Between May 30 through July 18, 2023, the World Series of Poker will include both new and returning tournaments.
The “Mystery Millions” No-Limit Hold’em tournament is one of the main attractions, with a $1,000 buy-in, mystery bonuses ranging from $10,000 to $1 million for each knockout, and a $1 million guaranteed first prize. Poker expert Matt Glantz took down the $1 million prize in last year’s first mystery reward tournament, which drew 14,112 entrants.
Executive Director of the World Series of Poker Jack Effel went to Twitter to announce many new tournaments and tournament series for the 2023 WSOP.
- $1,000 buy-in “Mystery Millions”
- $300 buy-in “Gladiators of Poker”
- Millionaire Maker
- Monster Stack
- WSOP Seniors Poker Championship
- WSOP Ladies Poker Championship
- $600 buy-in “ultra stack” with 60,000 chips
- The closer
and of course the 2023 Main Event – which will crown a new Queen or King of poker.
With 8,663 players, the prize pool for the 2022 “Main Event” was $80,782,475, making it the second highest in the history of live poker. Players may enter “The Main Event” on any of the four opening days (July 3, 4, 5, or 6) then re-enter for “Day 2” on July 7 or 8.
Some major tournaments, including famous weekend-anchoring events, have already been confirmed, although the entire WSOP calendar for 2023 will be published at a later date.
As of 2023, the World Series of Poker will be hosted jointly between the Paris Las Vegas and the upcoming Horseshoe Las Vegas. The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has been going strong since 1970 when it was first hosted at the old Horseshoe Las Vegas. This year’s event will be the 54th in the series.
