The official dates for the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) live festival are finally out.
The 54th edition of the world’s longest-running and most prestigious poker series in the US will take place from May 30 to July 18, 2023, at its new home, Paris Las Vegas which will be renamed Horseshoe by the end of this year.
The WSOP has yet to release the full schedule for the 2023 series, but it has announced some key poker tournaments that will be included in the line-up, such as the $1,500 Monster Stack (June 16), the $1,500 Millionaire Maker (June 23), as well as the Seniors Championship (June 21) and the Ladies Championship (June 29), both of which have a buy-in of $1,000.
As usual, the festival will be headlined by the WSOP Main Event which costs $10,000 to enter and gets underway on July 3. Players have four starting flights to choose from, running until July 6. Late registration is available and stays open on Day 2ab (July 7), and Day 2cd (July 8).
The tournament also has a mini version kicking off on July 2 with a buy-in of $1,000.
Other confirmed events on the schedule are the following: $1,000 Mystery Millions (May 31), $400 Colossus (June 30), $777 Lucky 7s (July 7) and $1,500 The Closer (July 14).
A new event named the “Gladiators of Poker” has also been thrown into the mix and will start on June 7. It has an entry fee of only $300, making it the cheapest live gold bracelet event in history. Despite the relatively small buy-in, the tournament will award a huge $3,000,000 in guaranteed prizes.
Another new addition to the schedule is the “Ultra Stack” which comes with a buy-in of $600 and takes place on July 11.
Another Exciting Chapter for WSOP
Announcing the dates, WSOP Senior Vice President and Executive Director Ty Stewart said they’re hoping to build on the massive success of the inaugural event in Paris Las Vegas. He is encouraging poker players and fans to start arranging their schedules and booking a trip to the WSOP for what would be another exciting chapter in the festival’s history.
SVP and General Manager of the Paris and Horseshoe Las Vegas Jason Gregorec is equally excited for the second running of the WSOP on the Strip, saying he expects the series to deliver unforgettable moments just as it did in 2022.
