World Series of Poker

The World Series of Poker® is the largest, richest and most prestigious gaming event in the world. Featuring a comprehensive slate of tournaments in every major poker variation, the WSOP is poker’s longest-running tournament in the world, dating back to 1970. 

In 2019, the event attracted 187,298 entrants from 118 different countries to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and awarded more than $293 million in prize money.

2020 WSOP was postponed and eventually moved online due to Covid.

In 2021, numbers were still affected with 42,241 entries.

However, the 2022 WSOP drew an astonishing 182,662 entrants — over 50% more than the pandemic-hit 2021 series. The Main Event pulled in 8,663 entrants for a total prize pool of $80,782,475.

The 2023 WSOP is expected to continue to smash the field as poker grows in popularity.

Poker players and enthusiasts can officially save the date(s) for the 54th annual World Series of Poker® (WSOP®).  The richest, most prestigious, and longest-running poker series will return to the Las Vegas Strip at Paris Las Vegas, and the soon-to-be Horseshoe on May 30 – July 18, 2023, following a 2022 tournament that saw 197,626 entrants from more than 100 countries with a record-breaking $347.9 million total prize pool.

The 2023 WSOP schedule will feature the always anticipated $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship, best known as “The Main Event®,” along with new events and the return of timeless classics. The flagship opening event is being billed as “Mystery Millions,” a $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em tournament featuring mystery bounties from $10,000 to $1 million for each knockout and a $1 million guaranteed first prize through the traditional prize pool. Last summer’s first mystery bounty event was a stunning success with a total of 14,112 entries and a $1,000,000 bounty won by poker pro Matt Glantz. 

The 2022 “Main Event” was the second-largest field in the history of live poker, generating a whopping $80,782,475 prize pool from 8,663 entrants. The full WSOP schedule will be announced in 2023, but notable tournaments have already been confirmed.

The 2023 WSOP will celebrate its second summer at its new home of Paris Las Vegas and the future Horseshoe Las Vegas. The 54th annual edition of the tournament builds onto the legacy of Caesars Entertainment’s WSOP, as the first tournament was played at the original Horseshoe Las Vegas in 1970. 

The 2023 WSOP Main Event will start on July 3rd.

$10,000 buy-in, four starting days from July 3-6 to choose from - Day 1a 3rd July, Day 1b 4th July, Day 1c 5th July, Day 1d 6th July - with late registration also remaining open on Day 2ab (Friday, July 7 2023) and Day 2cd (Saturday, July 8 2023)
