The World Series of Poker (WSOP) moved venues in 2022, marking the first time in 17 years that the tournament has been held anywhere other than the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. It was held at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas. The 54th annual event, which will take place in 2023, will once again be staged at the same two brand-new venues on the Las Vegas Strip. Caesars Entertainment has made all of its holiday-related announcements early.
Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas will host the WSOP in 2023. Between the 30th of May and the 18th of July
More than 197,600 players from more than 100 nations participated in this year’s game, making it the richest and longest-running poker gaming event in the world. It will return in 2023. The record-breaking prize pool of $348 million in the 2022 competition set a new standard. According to World Series of Poker senior vice president and executive director Ty Stewart, the choice to employ the same two new sites was therefore a direct consequence of the success of the event’s debut on the Strip. In what Stewart called “another thrilling chapter in the tournament’s history,” Caesars is thrilled to return to Paris Las Vegas and Bally’s, shortly to be rebranded Horseshoe Las Vegas.
The World Series of Poker 2023 Will Feature Both Longstanding Traditions and Exciting New Games
Poker fans may start planning their vacations to Las Vegas for next year’s tournament now. Caesars has announced that the much-anticipated $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship, better known as The Main Event, along with other classic and new events, including in-demand weekend events, will return to the WSOP this year.
The Main Event of 2022 had the second-largest field in live poker history, with more than 8,660 players contributing to a prize pool that ultimately exceeded $80,780,000. In 2023, like in previous years, participants will have the option of joining the tournament on any of four different beginning dates between July 3 and July 6, with additional buy-in opportunities on July 7 and 8.
The main event, with a $1,000 buy-in, is a No-Limit Hold’em tournament called “Mystery Millions,” and it has mystery payouts ranging from $10,000 to $1,000,000 for every knockout. Similarly, the first place award for the first tournament is likewise guaranteed to be $1 million. More than 14,100 people registered for this year’s Mystery Bounty Event, and professional poker player Matt Glantz won the tempting $1,000,000 prize.
More than six months before the event, Jason Gregorec, senior vice president and general manager of both Paris and Horseshoe Las Vegas, said excitement was already rising.
