Start budgeting your bankroll and practicing your strategies. Caesars has released details of the 2023 WSOP schedule, including elements of new events, buy-ins, locations, and guarantees for the entire World Series of Poker in Las Vegas this year.
The overall dates and locations for the 54th edition of the World Series of Poker have been public for months. But Caesars has just announced what all players need to know about where and when to get in on specific games. The same goes for fans of the game who want to take in the action.
2023 WSOP full daily schedule details are official
Caesars revealed everything in a Thursday morning press release, following its December announcement of the dates and venues for 2023. The full schedule breaks down the daily action for the seven-week tournament.
Thursday’s release says the 2023 World Series of Poker will feature the series’ largest capacity ever. It will have 608 tables taking up more than 200,000 square feet of convention space. Additionally, there will be round-the-clock action in a new permanent Hall of Fame Poker Room. The tournament’s first-ever $300 price point event is another new feature.
While those might be record-breakers, the 2023 Main Event flirts with unprecedented territory. Caesars plans on having the 2023 version of the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship “Main Event” be the second-largest field in the history of live poker, coming up just short of last year’s 8,663 contenders.
Fans and players might not want to take that as a damper on the excitement for this year’s event at Paris Las Vegas and Horseshoe Las Vegas, though. Caesars has introduced some new elements in hopes to produce a manic reaction to the World Series of Poker in 2023.
New aspects of the 2023 World Series of Poker
Caesars highlights a few new twists to the 2023 version of poker’s headline event. First among those is Main Event Mania, which includes several elements. And it gives players all over the globe a chance to qualify for the 2023 Main Event in Vegas.
To start with, the World Series of Poker is guaranteeing 600 Main Event seats through GGPoker satellite events. Those events begin in March 2023 and are open to ClubGG.net subscribers. Following up on that, Caesars and partner physical casinos around the world will offer in-person satellite tournaments on May 20 and 21.
Players can see a full list of casinos taking part in those Main Event Mania tournaments on that weekend through the World Series of Poker site. US casinos taking part include:
- Harrah’s Cherokee
- Horseshoe Tunica
- Hard Rock Tulsa
- Grand Victoria Casino
Perhaps most exciting for players who are Caesars Rewards members is the potential Main Event for Life prize. Caesars says that if the 2023 Main Event breaks the record for the largest field ever, all entrants who are members will be eligible for a special drawing. One winner in that sweepstakes will get an automatic, comped Main Event buy-in for the next 30 years.
Other new events consist of $300 Buy-In Gladiators of Poker and $1,000 Buy-In Mystery Millions. With the daily schedule for each event now official, spectators know exactly when to catch the action.
