Bracelet Chasing in Paradise: First Ever WSOP Paradise Planned for December

The 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas is winding down, but the action will heat up again come December with the first ever WSOP Paradise at the Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

In partnership with GGPoker, the winter series will include 15 bracelet events from Dec. 3-14. Via a Twitter video, GG’s top ambassador Daniel Negreanu shared some details about the upcoming major event.

The full schedule isn’t out, but Negreanu teased a heavy dose of high rollers, including $50,000 and $100,000 buy-in tournaments. In total, the WSOP is guaranteeing at least $50 million in prize money to be awarded across all events in the Bahamas.

Warm Weather, Beaches, and Bracelets

With gorgeous beaches and warm weather, there aren’t many better places to be in December than the Bahamas. The island is a familiar spot for major poker events, most notably the popular PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA).

This coming winter, the Bahamas will host a WSOP bracelet series for the first time. The series will be highlighted by a $5,000 Main Event with $15 million guaranteed. Other events announced include a $1,500 Mystery Bounty, $25,000 GGMillion$, along with two pot-limit Omaha tournaments.

“GGPoker is delighted to launch WSOP Paradise and welcome hundreds of players from all over the world to Atlantis Paradise Island this December,” Negreanu said in a press release. “It’s going to be an absolutely amazing experience, the best of poker at one of the world’s most luxurious resorts.”

Negreanu hasn’t traveled much in recent years to play poker outside of WSOP Europe, but he’ll be chasing his first bracelet since 2013 this winter in the Bahamas, and is coming off a second straight disappointing summer World Series of Poker.

Speaking of WSOP Europe, prior to the Bahamas series, the bracelet-chasing action will resume in Rozvadov, Czech Republic from October 25 to November 16. There will be 15 bracelet events on that schedule as well.
