2023 WSOP Main Event champ kicks off 2024 Main Event

3 July 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Main Event for the 55th Annual World Series of Poker is officially underway inside the Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas, as 2023 WSOP Main Event Champion Daniel Weinman was on hand to deliver the iconic “Shuffle Up and Deal” to kickstart the tournament. Weinman, out of Atlanta, Georgia, topped a record field of 10,043 entrants in 2023 to take home the richest trophy in sports, the WSOP Main Event Bracelet, and $12.1 million in winnings.

“This is the greatest poker tournament in the world,” Weinman said. “I plan on playing in this tournament for the rest of my life and am excited to see who gets their name up on the wall next to me ... if I don’t do it again.”

“This has been the summer of legends and we’re ready to make another on the biggest stage in poker,” said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. “We’re poised and ready for another record-breaking Main Event field, so with almost a week to register, we wish everyone safe travels in coming to take their shot.”

The 2023 Main Event attracted a record 10,043 entrants, shattering the previous record of 8,773 set in 2006. The 2023 edition stands as the biggest WSOP Main Event in series history, with a staggering $93,339,900 prize pool—the biggest in poker history.

The 2024 WSOP Main Event has four starting flights, 1A – 1D, spanning Wednesday, 3 July, through Sunday, 14 July. Late registration is available Sunday, 7 July and Monday, 8 July (starting on Level 6), and will close on Monday, July 8, at 4:40 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. The tournament will feature surprise celebrity cameos, appearances by poker legends, and much more.

The Final Table will begin on Tuesday, 16 July.
