2023 WSOP Main Event final table is down to final nine players

14 July 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Following eight days of unimaginable highs and devastating lows, the stage has been set for the final table at the record-breaking 54th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event. A moment 17 years in the making, Adam Walton, Steven Jones, Daniel Weinman, Jan-Peter Jachtmann, Juan Maceiras, Ruslan Prydryk, Dean Hutchison, Daniel Holzner and Toby Lewis are now positioned to make poker history by claiming victory over the largest Main Event field ever of 10,043 competitors and holding the title of undisputed 2023 WSOP World Champion.

On Sunday, July 16, nine players will take to the “Mothership” stage inside the Horseshoe Las Vegas for the final showdown in the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship event. The first-place winner will take home $12,100,000 in prize money and the newly designed WSOP Main Event bracelet.

Considered to be the most valuable trophy in all of sports, the 2023 WSOP Main Event bracelet, features approximately 500 grams of 10-karat yellow gold, 2,352 various precious gemstones, including 42 carats of round genuine diamonds, 425 black and red stones to accentuate the suits and a removable golden poker chip that sits in the center of the bracelet.
