The World Series of Poker reveals its 2023-2024 schedule
July 2, 2023
The World Series of Poker (WSOP) has revealed its 2023-2024 schedule and announced the return of the WSOP Circuit (WSOP-C). The 19th edition of the circuit will begin July 19 at Choctaw Casino Resort in Durant, Oklahoma immediately following the conclusion of the 2023 World Series of Poker tournament in Las Vegas. 25 stops have been scheduled to date, with additional dates to be announced later this July on WSOP.com. The $1 million freeroll will return featuring a similar format as the 2022-23 season.
There will be one new stop at the Graton Casino in Rohnert Park, California, and another new stop at a Caesars Entertainment destination, Horseshoe Hammond, in Hammond, Indiana on October 5-16, 2023. Harrah’s Cherokee will be WSOP-C’s second stop beginning on Thursday, August 3 with the tour continuing virtually nonstop until the season-culminating stop at Caesars Southern Indiana on Thursday, May 9-20, 2024. Most WSOP-C stops will begin on Thursdays, with the four-day Main Events beginning on the second Friday of the tournament. Each stop is encouraged to add Seniors and Ladies events, where the winners will qualify to participate in the “Tournament of Champions” in Las Vegas. WSOP-C stops will feature standardized tournament structures and payouts, ensuring players traveling to multiple stops will be treated in a consistent manner at each event, barring any regulatory or local law differences. All stops will release their series’ event schedules upon approval by their local regulatory body, with the guarantee that every stop will offer at least a dozen official WSOP gold ring events starting at a $250 buy-in level and will include a $1,700 Main Event.
“We are on pace to make history with the largest WSOP of all time this year and have already hosted ten record-breaking events so far at the 2023 WSOP,” said Senior Vice President and Executive Director of the World Series of Poker, Ty Stewart. “As the excitement around the game of poker continues to grow exponentially, we expect this energy to roll into the WSOP Circuit the summer, setting some records along the way as well.”
