All efforts shift to preparing for the flagship World Series of Poker in Las Vegas in 2024 with WSOP Paradise concluding the World Series of Poker 2023 event calendar. The WSOP announced today the summer tournament dates for the 55th annual event, including the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship, which is also known as the "Main Event."

The countdown to 2024 begins now. “Records are made to be broken, so we’re working hard to make sure 2024 is the biggest and best event in poker history. Make sure you mark your calendars and save those vacation days. We’ll see you there.”
