The 2023 WSOP builds on the momentum of 2022 tournament with a record-breaking $347.9 million total prize pool and it’s expected that record will be broken once again. Summer’s event will feature the biggest capacity with 608 tables in the history of the series, 24/7 live cash game action, and first-ever $300 Gladiators of Poker event.
The centerpiece of every World Series is the $10,000 Main Event, which will be held from July 3-17, following last year’s 8,663 entrants, the second-largest field in the history of live poker.
“With the momentum generated from the WSOP’s debut on the Las Vegas Strip last year, we expect a record-breaking WSOP and World Championship at Paris and Horseshoe Las Vegas in 2023," said Ty Stewart, SVP & Executive Director of the WSOP. "If the Main Event is on your bucket list, this is the year to get to Vegas.”
And if that happens, organizers will draw someone from the field who will win a Main Event for Live – a non-transferable Main Event buy-in for the next 30 years.
