The players all around the world are impatiently waiting for the beginning of the 2023 WPT World Championship. Great news for everyone is that the guaranteed prize pool in this year’s tournament is $40 million, followed by a thrilling festival schedule. The event will be held at Wynn Las Vegas.

Meeting the high expectations:

Last year’s live tournament granted the biggest guaranteed prize in the history of the game. The last tournament’s guarantee was $15 million, and this year, the amount is almost three times higher.

Adam Pliska, CEO of WPT, said: “The WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas is poised to reach new heights, and we wanted to match that expectation with a guarantee that no live poker tournament has ever seen before. The journey to December begins now, and we plan on giving players another unforgettable experience at Wynn Las Vegas.”

The $10.400 event begins on December 12 and will last until December 21. The event will feature four starting flights and the final table that will be broadcast on television. The inaugural marquee event last year had 2.960 players, and the prize pool went to $29.008.000. The winner, Eliot Hudon from Canada, won a prize of $4.136.000. 

Ryan Beauregard, Wynn’s Executive Director of Poker Operations, commented: “The astonishing support and excitement we’ve seen from the poker community after just one year is nothing like I’ve seen before. We look forward to the 2023 WPT World Championship and hosting another industry-leading event with an unparalleled player experience.”
