Following a successful 2022 series that featured 197,626 participants from more than 100 countries and the largest prize pool to date of $347.9 million, Las Vegas-based Caesars Entertainment has publicly announced that the 54th annual World Series of Poker will once again begin in Las Vegas, more precisely for the second time at Paris Las Vegas and Bally’s Las Vegas in 2023 and should run from May 30th to July 18th.
The tournament from the state-of-the-art poker content provider is a legacy of Caesar’s first WSOP tournament that was played in 1970 at the original Horseshoe Las Vegas.
Players are once again invited to participate in the tournament which will include a Main Event called the $10.000 No-Limit Hold-em World Championship, which will again have four starting days for players to choose from – July 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th and an Opening Event called Mystery Millions featuring a $1,000 buy-in No-Limit tournament with prizes ranging from $10.000 to $1 million for each knockout round and a $1m first prize, among other widely-known events.
However, due to the super deep stacked nature of the Main Event, players also have the opportunity to participate during Day 2’s on July 7 or 8!
Furthermore, every month WSOP.com provides a unique freeroll opportunity for the Main Event. But this applies only to players who have made a deposit for the first time!
A fun fact is that the 2022 Main Event was named the second-largest field in the history of live-poker, with a prize pool of $80,782,475 million and almost 9,000 participants and the inaugural event was also very successful with a total of 14,112 participants and a $1,000,000 prize pool won by poker pro Matt Glantz.
