Poker players and enthusiasts can officially save the date for the 54th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP).

Caesars Entertainment announced that the longest-running poker series will return to Paris Las Vegas and the soon-to-be Horseshoe on May 30 – July 18, 2023.

The entire WSOP schedule will be announced in 2023, but notable tournaments have already been confirmed, including high-demand weekend-anchoring events.

WSOP Vice President and Executive Director Ty Stewart said:

“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. 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 2022 tournament saw 197,626 entrants from more than 100 countries with a record-breaking $347.9 million total prize pool.

The 2023 WSOP schedule

The 2023 WSOP will feature the much anticipated $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship, best known as “The Main Event.” There will also be new events and the return of timeless classics.

The flagship opening event, “Mystery Millions,” is a $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em tournament with mystery bounties ranging from $10,000 to $1 million for each knockout. The event also features a $1 million guaranteed first prize through the traditional prize pool.

Last summer’s first mystery bounty event totaled 14,112 entries and a $1,000,000 bounty win, hit by poker pro Matt Glantz.

The 2022 “Main Event” was the second-largest field in live poker history, generating a massive $80,782,475 prize pool from 8,663 entrants.

“The Main Event” will once again feature four starting days to pick from, running from July 3 – 6.

Players can also choose to buy in on either Day 2s, July 7 or July 8.

WSOP anticipation starts six months ahead of the event

Reduced room rates are now available across Caesars Entertainment’s Las Vegas resorts during the 2023 WSOP.

Guests who book early can secure special rates by visiting Caesars’ website and using the advanced booking code “WSOP23.”

Jason Gregorec, SVP and General Manager of Paris and Horseshoe Las Vegas said:

“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.”

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.
