WPT: World Championship


  • The WPT World Championship will officially return to Wynn Las Vegas in December.
  • The iconic event promises to be one of the biggest yet to reunite worldwide players.
  • World Poker Tour Season XXII will conclude with the third annual WPT World Championship.

The iconic World Poker Tour (WPT) World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas debuted in December 2022 as the grand finale to what was a “historic and record-breaking 20th season of the World Poker Tour”.

Then, the championship event featured a $10,400 buy-in and displayed a massive $15-million-dollar guaranteed prize pool, which represented the largest guaranteed prize pool in the history of live poker tournaments.

This December, the iconic event will make its comeback for the third year in a row. The event will take place between December 3-20 at the luxurious resort on Las Vegas Strip.

Ecstatic to Continue Our Partnership” with the WPT

Wynn Las Vegas’s executive director of poker operations, Ryan Beauregard, expressed enthusiasm regarding the ongoing partnership with the WPT for the third consecutive year.

We are ecstatic to continue our partnership with the World Poker Tour. Over the coming months, we’ll work work diligently to craft an event schedule poker players from all over the world won’t want to miss.

World Poker Tour Season XXII will come to an end with the third annual WPT World Championship.

Some of the highest-anticipated events that will make a return this December will include the WPT Prime Championship and the WPT World Championship.

Last year, the WPT World Poker Tour brought 33,712 at the Wynn, paying out over $100 million in total.

The amount included the biggest event in history, the $10,400 buy-in WPT World Championship which marked the pioneer of the poker tournament with $40 million guaranteed.

Dan Sepiol managed to beat out the huge field of entrants and took home a whopping $5.3 million at the end of what ended up being one of the most memorable series in poker history.

The series also hosted the $1,100 buy-in WPT Prime Championship which brought a World Poker Tour record of 10,512 entries and created a $10 million prize pool.

Calvin Anderson was the ruler of the final table, scooping up close to $1.4 million.

The WPT Ladies Championship also hosted a $1,100 buy-in event that was won by Lisa Costello who bagged $85,297 after she successfully defeated 457 entrants.

The figures for the 2024 series are expected to be just as big, if not greater, as explained by World Poker Tour chief executive officer CEO Adam Pliska.
