2023 WSOP Main Event poised to break new attendance record

3 July 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Earlier today, the 54th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event officially kicked off inside the newly re-branded Horseshoe Las Vegas with a special appearance by WSOP icon Jamie Gold. A record-setter himself, Gold solidified his name in poker history in 2006, taking home the World Champion title by defeating the largest Main Event field ever (8,773 players). This year, the 2023 Main Event is poised to beat the 2006 record, potentially marking 2023 as the largest field in WSOP history.

The Horseshoe Events Center was packed with locals and poker enthusiasts alike as they gathered in anticipation of this year’s kick-off event. WSOP Vice President Jack Effel took to the Main Event stage, delivering enthusiastic remarks, detailing the excitement everyone was feeling as the Main Event kicks off this week. Gold then took to the stage to welcome players from around the world and deliver the most famous words in poker – “Shuffle Up and Deal!”

“I would like to wish all of the players nothing but the best of luck in this year’s Main Event,” said Gold. “That is, until they face off with me at the Final Table – then, all bets are off. Now, let’s make some history. Shuffle Up and Deal!”

The WSOP Main Event has four total flights 1A – 1D, spanning Monday, 3 July – Saturday, 15 July, and will feature surprise celebrity cameos and much more.
