Wynn Las Vegas happens to be a Forbes Travel Guide five-star resort which will be partnering with WPT in order to be able to host the event. There will be a WPT Prime Championship, along with a WPT Ladies Championship, as well as a WPT World Championship slated for different time periods.
According to the CEO of WPT, Adam Pliska, the event happened to have been an overall rip-roaring success the last time over. There have been the necessary additions to the event that will be held this year in order to provide all connected and concerned people a far better experience.
The last event was awarded the 2022 Event of the Year at the 4th annual Global Poker Awards, which happened to have witnessed 2,960 runners altogether. The prize pool amount had shot up to $29,008,000, which was duly received by the top 370 players.
