A Look At The Results From the Last Four WSOPO Events From 2023


The 2023 World Series of Poker Online came to a conclusion earlier this week. More than 32,000 entries were made across the 20 WSOPO bracelet events held on in Nevada and New Jersey, with over $20.4 million in prize money paid out along the way. Below is a look at the results from the final four tournaments on this year’s WSOPO schedule.

2023 WSOP Online $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em Six-Max Championship

Tom MarcheseTom Marchese came into the 2023 WSOP as one of the most accomplished tournament players in the world who had not yet won a gold bracelet at the series. Marchese had more than $18.7 million in prior scores to his name, including seven separate seven-figure paydays.

On July 11, he finally broke through to capture his first WSOP title, topping a field of 1,170 entries to win the $1,000 buy-un no-limit hold’em six-max championship for $195,963.

Most of Marchese’s top live scores have come in super high roller tournaments outside of the series. With this win, his WSOP earnings grew to nearly $1.6 million.

Other big names that joined him toward the business end of this event included World Poker Tour champion Taylor Black (22nd), bracelet winner James Gilbert (10th), bracelet winner Guy Dunlap (4th), and two-time bracelet winner Connor Drinan (3rd).
