World Series of Poker Paradise crowning first champion

15 December 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The World Series of Poker’s newest winter series – WSOP Paradise – crowned its first champion at Atlantis at Paradise Island Resort and Casino on 14 December with Stanislav Zegal conquering a field of 3,008 entrants to win the $2 million first-place prize and the first-of-its-kind WSOP Paradise Main Event gold bracelet. The action was livestreamed by GGPoker and taped for future episodes on CBS Sports Network as the new poker festival in the Bahamas racked up more than $70 million in total prize money across 15 bracelet events.

With WSOP Paradise concluding the World Series of Poker’s 2023 event calendar, all efforts shift to preparation for the flagship 2024 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. Today, the WSOP announced its 2024 summer tournament dates for the 55th annual WSOP, including the $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship – best known to poker fans as the “Main Event.”

The 2023 WSOP shattered all tournament records on its way to awarding more than $400,000,000 in prize pools. The summer was highlighted by the all-time record field of 10,043 entrants in the Main Event won by Daniel Weinman, who earned $12.1 million with his victory.

“There’s not much more that can be said about what a special year 2023 was for the WSOP and the game of poker,” said Ty Stewart, SVP and Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. “But it’s time to turn the page and begin the countdown to 2024. Records are made to be broken. We’re busy on improvements to make sure 2024 is both the biggest and best event in poker history. Mark your calendars and bank those vacation days. We’ll see you in Vegas.”

The 2024 WSOP will take place at Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas from May 28 to July 17, 2024, with the Main Event running from July 3 to July 17. The Main Event – poker’s undisputed freezeout world championship – will have four starting days, beginning on Wednesday, July 3. Players may also register directly on Day 2 on either July 4 or July 5.

The full daily event schedule for the 55th annual WSOP will be announced in early 2024. Fan favorites, including the Mystery Millions, Millionaire Maker, and the Senior’s Championship, will return to the schedule in 2024. Reduced room rates will be available across Caesars Entertainment’s Las Vegas resorts for the series. Players and guests should stay tuned to WSOP social media channels and WSOP.com for updates on special rates available at www.caesars.com.

Players can visit www.wsop.com/promotions for full details on ways to qualify for the 2024 WSOP. WSOP satellites outside the U.S. will be exclusively held on GGPoker beginning in January. Additional details regarding the entire gold bracelet schedule will also be available at www.wsop.com. Online pre-registration will open after all events have been determined and approved by regulators.
