What to Expect on Day 18 of the 2023 WSOP

the PokerNews Live Reporting team will bring you live and exclusive coverage of two new events on June 16, which is the 18th day of the 2023 World Series of Poker.

Event #39: $1,500 Monster Stack should prove immensely popular thanks to the 50,000 starting stack. Last year’s event saw 6,501 players enter, and it would no surprise anyone in Las Vegas if this year’s tournament hits 7,000 runners.

The biggest buy-in tournament of the 2023 WSOP, Event #40: $250,000 Super High Roller, should be a compact yet stellar field. Alex Foxen came out on top of a 56-strong field in 2022, and walked away with $4,563,700 for his troubles.

Of course, there will be bracelets awarded in most of the other events mentioned above, so be sure to head to our 2023 WSOP hub for everything you need to know about this year’s series.
