Are you ready for the 2023 World Series of Poker? Yes, we realise it is still 2022, but that hasn’t stopped Caesars from announcing the dates for the 2023 WSOP. WSOP organisers have revealed that the 2023 World Series of Poker will run from May 30 through July 18, 2023, at Paris Las Vegas and the Horseshoe.
A full schedule of events is not yet available. However, the dates announcement previewed some of the highlights players can expect next year.
2023 WSOP Dates Announced
On Monday, WSOP officials revealed the dates for the 2023 World Series of Poker. The 2023 WSOP will run in Las Vegas from May 30 through July 18, 2023. Events will be split between Paris Las Vegas and the Horseshoe.
Paris and Horseshoe General Manager Jason Gregorec spoke on the dates reveal, stating, “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 2022 WSOP drew 197,626 entrants from over 100 countries. This created record prize pools of over $347.9 million. According to Ty Stewart, VP and Executive Director of the WSOP, “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 2023 WSOP Main Event has the potential to be the largest in history. In 2022, the Main Event drew the second-largest field ever, with 8,663 entrants and a prize pool of $80.78 million. Joe Hachem famously won the WSOP Main Event in 2005 and effectively started Australia’s Poker Boom. Will another Aussie rise through the ranks and take the 2023 World Championship?
A full schedule of events for the 2023 WSOP, including online bracelet events, will be released sometime in 2023. Generally, a full schedule is out by February. If you already know that you want to go to the 2023 WSOP, you can go to Caesars.com and enter booking code WSOP23 for special room rates.
