World Series of Poker 2023 preview
The World Series of Poker is officially the biggest, richest and most prestigious poker tournament series on the planet, and the 54th edition raises the stakes even further than ever, with 95 bracelet events scheduled to take place over 47 consecutive days at the Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas on the infamous Strip.
The "Main Event", the $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em World Championship, which is forever shooting to eclipse the record-setting prize pool of $82,512,162 that was set in 2006, is scheduled to run for a fortnight, starting Monday, July 3 and concluding on Monday, July 17.
There are daily Deep Stack and Mega Satellite events too, with buy-ins ranging from $130 to $250,000, and plenty more besides. After all, this is Vegas.
Three-time World Championship of Online Poker player of the year and six-time World Series of Poker bracelet-winner Shaun Deeb is at the top of the WSOP standings at the time of writing, with Ian Matakis close behind and Chad Eveslage leading the bracelet count with a brace.
