Caesars Entertainment has announced the dates for the next World Series of Poker, with the 2023 series set to return to the Las Vegas Strip at Caesars’ soon-to-be Horseshoe Las Vegas casino.
The 54th WSOP is set to take place on May 30 through to July 18, 2023, following the 2022 series that took place with 197,626 entrants from over 100 countries.
“The historic debut of the WSOP on the Las Vegas Strip delivered in a big way, and we’re excited to announce our Summer 2023 dates in time for the holidays,” said Ty Stewart, World Series of Poker Senior Vice President and Executive Director.
“Poker players and fans can now officially mark their calendars and maybe even book their loved ones or themselves a trip to the WSOP as a holiday gift. We’re glad to be back at Paris Las Vegas and the future Horseshoe Las Vegas for another exciting chapter in the tournament’s history as these two resorts raised the bar in hosting last year’s event.”
The 2023 WSOP will feature its established main event, a $10,000 no-limit hold’em world championship along with new events and the return of ‘timeless classics’.
Opening the event, a $1,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em tournament featuring mystery bounties ranging from $1,000 to $1m for each knockout will welcome players to Paris Las Vegas, with a guaranteed first prize of $1m.
Jason Gregorec, SVP and General Manager of Paris and Horseshoe Las Vegas, added: “With more than six months to go from the start of the next WSOP, you can already feel the anticipation building at our resorts.”
“The tournament delivered unforgettable moments during its debut on The Strip, and we’re excited to welcome back poker’s premier event of the year. We can’t wait to see the first WSOP Main Event champion crowned at the new Horseshoe Las Vegas.”
Noteworthy tournament dates have already been confirmed including the main event world championship, which will take place on July 3, with the full schedule to be announced in the new year.
