The 2022 Poker World Championship Will Be Held at a New Location
After 17 consecutive and successful years of hosting the World Poker Championship at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, the players will now move to a new location. For the first time, the games will be held at a hotel located in the heart of the central strip of Las Vegas, specifically at the Bally's and Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.
Adding to the excitement is the announcement of Vince Vaughn as the event host for WSOP 2022. Vaughn, an amateur poker player himself, will also participate in the tournament as an active player for the first time, having previously included WSOP scenes in his film "Wedding Crashers."
In an interview, Vaughn said, “I have such a strong connection to Las Vegas and am honored to be selected as the Master of Ceremonies for what is set to be the most anticipated WSOP tournament ever. Poker has long been one of my favorite sports, so to be a part of something as historic as the WSOP finally moving to the strip is an absolute dream. Vegas Baby, Vegas!”
