We plan to give players another unforgettable experience in Win Las Vegas.”
This year’s $10,400 WPT World Championships in Win Las Vegas will be held from Dec. 12-21, with four departures and a televised final table.

We look forward to hosting another industry-leading event with the 2023 WPT World Championship and unparalleled player experience.”
