2023 World Series of Poker Schedule Set, Special Push for Championship Event

The World Series of Poker is surely sucking up the air in the poker world by releasing the entire schedule five months in advance of the start of play. Thursday, WSOP and Caesars officials unveiled the daily schedule for this year’s events, which will run from May 30 to July 18. In addition, a special effort will be made to attract players to the Championship Event, which fell just short of the all-time record in 2022.

Online, Championship Event Live Satellites Start in March

Unofficially termed as the “Main Event,” the 2022 WSOP Championship Event came close to breaking the record. In 2006, the Granddaddy of poker tournaments drew 8773 players to the Rio in Las Vegas to compete. In 2022, the site was changed — the then-known as Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas – but the record was almost broken with 8663 participants. In 2023, TPTB at WSOP headquarters intends to shatter this record with two distinct outlets.

First GGPoker, the official online satellite partner of the WSOP, will receive 300 additional satellite seats, bringing their total to 600 satellite seats. These satellites will begin in March on the site (GGPoker is inaccessible to U.S. players), and they should be picked up very fast. According to WSOP marketing, this is just the beginning of “Main Event Mania.”

In May, a globally synchronized satellite system will be performed for the first time outside of the WSOP. The weekend of May 20-21 is WSOP Global Qualification Weekend, during which poker venues on four continents will host satellite events for the Championship Event. Beginning with a $140 buy-in and concluding with a $1175 buy-in super satellite, they will be conducted in a STEP format.

Caesars sites in North Carolina (Cherokee), Tunica (Horseshoe), Las Vegas, St. Louis, Pompano, Turning Stone in New York, the Hard Rock in Tulsa, the Grand Victoria Casino in Illinois, and Horseshoe Council Bluffs (Iowa) will all serve as hosts throughout the United States. King’s Resort (Czech Republic), Charron Paris (France), Deerfoot Inn & Casino Calgary (Canada), Enjoy Punta del Este Resort and Casino (Uruguay), and Casino Es Saadi Marrakech (Morocco) will be open for Global Qualification Weekend.

Caesars will award a very special prize if the Championship Event record is broken. Every participant in the Championship Event will be placed into a drawing. What is it? A spot in the Championship Event for the next thirty years is something EVERY player would want to have in his or her possession.

New Low Buy-In Event in the Tournament of Champions

The general program has been modified in a few significant ways.

Instead of occurring at the conclusion of the WSOP, like it did in 2022, this year’s Tournament of Champions will take place at the beginning of the WSOP in 2023. All WSOP Circuit ring winners, both live and online, from July 2022 to May 2023 will be eligible to compete against the WSOP 2022 live winners in Las Vegas, Rozvadov (Europe), and online. Those who win a bracelet at the 2023 WSOP will be eligible for the following year’s Tournament of Champions.

Finally, a tournament with the lowest buy-in in WSOP history is available to nearly everyone. The $300 Gladiators of Poker has a guaranteed prize pool of $3 million, but it could be a minefield. Four flights begin on June 7, and players can re-enter twice if they are eliminated. With the addition of new tournaments for Badugi, Big O (five-card Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo split), a $25,000 H.O.R.S.E. “High Roller,” and a split Omaha Hi-Lo/Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo, players in Las Vegas this summer will have a plethora of options.

Visit the WSOP website for a complete breakdown of this year’s event schedule. In addition, you can find detailed information about special hotel prices and registration there. We now know when the 2023 WSOP will begin, so book your flights and accommodations immediately.
