World Series of Poker (WSOP) unveiled the schedule for the biggest tournament of 2023
Dates for the famous poker tournament can be put on the calendar. The World Series of Poker tournament season will begin on May 30 and close ceremonially on July 18, 2023. The start of the main tournament is set for July 3. Dates for all mini-tournaments have also been announced. Sign up to take part now.
The organizers have presented a new event. It will be the Gladiators of Poker. Its buy-in is one of the lowest in the history of the series - only $300. At the same time the size of the prize money reaches $3 million. Among the new events also belongs Ultra Stack, information about which is still a mystery. The organizers promise to publish the buy-in and the prize money in the nearest future.
For the main tournament buy-in rises every year and 2023 was no exception. This year the player will have to pay $10000 for participation. There will be four starting days. The main tournament will start on July 3. Like in previous years, the main tournament of the World Series of Poker will be held in a freezeout format - each player will have only one attempt to play. If a player loses, he is eliminated.
The series will close with the popular and already legendary The Closer tournament. It will be traditionally attended by all WSOP 2023 winners. The series, like last year, will be held in Las Vegas at the Horseshoe Hotel.
Fans of the poker format Mystery Bounty can rejoice. It presented itself brightly last year, so it will be able to draw a crowd of fans in 2023 as well. For your reference, in 2022 the number of active participants of the tournament exceeded 14 thousand, which already says about the colossal success. Because of this the organizers decided not to change the main characteristics of the tournament: the buy-in of $1,000 and a guaranteed top bounty of $1 000 000.
In addition to the main event, there will be about 100 additional tournaments. Their buy-ins and formats are not yet known in detail, but one thing is certain: the wishes and needs of all players will be covered. So, it is planned to hold tournaments in team format, separate tournaments for women, separately for online players and users with disabilities.
