The WSOP had been held at BINION’S for over 30 years, eventually outgrowing the iconic venue. Starting from May 30th and running until July 18th, the 2023 WSOP will be held across two venues; the newly renamed Horseshoe Las Vegas, formerly Bally’s, and Paris. This year’s series will feature a record-breaking 95 bracelet event. Last year, over 197,000 entrants from over 100 countries competed for nearly $350 million in prize pools.
