The World Series of Poker returns to the Paris Casino and newly branded Horseshoe Casino on the Las Vegas Strip next summer. The 2023 WSOP kicks off May 30 and runs through July 18 with the 54th version of the iconic tournament series. The 2023 WSOP $10,000 buy-in Main Event begins July 3.


Get ready for the triumphant return of the World Series of Poker. In 2022, the WSOP said farewell to the Rio Casino, where it had been running since 2005. The WSOP found a new location on Las Vegas Blvd where it was split between the Paris Casino and Bally's Casino. Next summer, the WSOP returns to its new home of the Strip, which features the soon-to-be rebranding of Bally's to the new Horseshoe.

The 2022 WSOP featured 88 bracelet events. Players from all over the planet (and potentially a few aliens from another universe) converged on Las Vegas last summer for the 53rd running of the most prestigious poker tournament series in the world. Players from 100 plus countries took a shot at poker fame, cash, and a coveted bracelet. According to a press release, the 2022 WSOP attracted 197,626 entrants in 88 different events that slugged it out on the felt for a "record-breaking" total prize pool of almost $348 million.

Espen Jorstad from Norway claimed the 2022 WSOP Main Event title and $10 million in cash when he defeated Australia's Adrian Attenborough heads-up to claim the swanky bracelet and mountain of cash. Jorstad faded a field of 8,663 entrants to become the world champion.

The 2023 WSOP begins on May 30 and runs through mid July. Cards go in the air for the 2023 WSOP Main Event starting on July 3. So, if you have the ultimate dream of becoming a Main Event champion, then make sure you mark the date. If you're an amateur cardslinger, then ask your boss for the time off, or convince your wife to let you fly out to Vegas for a shot at millions. If you're a pro, the WSOP Main Event is your chance to etch your name in the history books, or get unstuck from your backer.

The actual schedule is not out yet, but the WSOP announced the dates to a select number of events. The brand-name events, which are catered to weekend warriors, are schedule for the weekends. You'll recognize those names like the Millionaire Maker, Lucky 7s, Monster Stack, Colossus, and the Closer.

  • Mystery Millions has a $1,00 buy-in and begins May 31 with $1 million guaranteed to the winner and a special $1 million bounty.
  • June 7 is the Gladiators of Poker, which has a modest $300 buy-in and a whopping $3 million guarantee.
  • The $1,500 Monster Stack returns on June 16, the $1,5000 Milly Maker is slated for June 23, the $400 Colossus begins June 30, and don't miss the $777 buy-in Lucky 7s on July 7 aka 7/7.
  • The Seniors Championship begins on June 21.
  • The Ladies Championship is set for June 29.
  • The $1,000 Mini Main Event is slated just before the actual Main Event on July 2.
  • The $600 Ultra Stack begins July 11.
  • The Closer caps off the 2023 WSOP with a $1,500 buy-in final running of the donks on July 14.
  • The first flight of the 2023 WSOP Main Event begins July 3 with multiple flights running over the holiday weekend.

"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 WSOP head honcho Ty Stewart. "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."

"With more than six months to go from the start of the next WSOP, you can already feel the anticipation building at our resorts," said Jason Gregorec, SVP and General Manager of Paris and Horseshoe Las Vegas. "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."

Stay tuned for a full schedule of events, including online bracelet events, for the 2023 WSOP.
