World Poker Tour Shatters Records With WPT Prime Tour 2023


As the World Poker Tour (WPT) gears up for another spectacular season of WPT Prime events, it is a moment to celebrate a few of the remarkable accomplishments that WPT Prime Tour achieved in 2023. This past year showcased notable positive trends both in field sizes and prize pools, contributing significantly to the global expansion of the game and solidifying WPT Prime as a premier mid-major tour.

In 2023, the WPT Prime Tour reached new heights, collectively awarding more than $20 million dollars across 14 events. Spanning twelve unique countries, the tour introduced eight new locales including, WPT Prime Paris, WPT Prime Amsterdam, WPT Prime India, WPT Prime Slovakia, WPT Prime Sanremo, WPT Prime Aix-en-Provence, and WPT Prime Liechtenstein, plus, an event run on WPT Global.

WPT Prime witnessed an unprecedented turnout with a record breaking 22,290 entries across the 14 events. This number marks an all-time high for WPT Prime and further highlights the global appeal of the mid-major tournaments being offered.

The pinnacle of the 2023 WPT Prime Tour was undoubtedly the WPT Prime Championship. This event saw an outstanding turnout and set a new bar for what the WPT Prime Tour can achieve. The WPT Prime Championship set the all-time WPT entries record  at 10,512. The sum resulted in the ambitious $5 million guaranteed prizepool to be doubled, reaching $10,196,640 which marks the largest prizepool for an $1,100 buy-in event in WPT history.

WPT Prime smashed several records over the course of the season. Excluding the WPT Prime Championship, the WPT Prime attendance and prizepool records were continually topped throughout 2023 starting with the very first event, WPT Prime Paris, which attracted 1,071 entrants, the largest WPT event ever held in Paris, and boasted a prizepool of over $1 million.

Shortly thereafter, WPT Prime Gold Coast attracted 1,224 entries, followed by WPT Prime Taiwan with 1,359 entries. The peak was reached at the debut of WPT Prime Liechtenstein where 1,644 participated in the championship event. This outstanding turnout not only marked a WPT Prime record, but also marked the single largest WPT event held in Europe.

WPT Prime Tour returns in 2024 with great anticipation and ambition to continue smashing records. Players can join the action beginning Feb. 1 at the return of WPT Prime Aix-en-Provence. Other first half schedule stops include, WPT Prime Amsterdam, WPT Prime Voyage, WPT Prime Slovakia, WPT Prime Gold Coast, and WPT Prime Sanremo with more stops to be announced in the coming months.
