The tournament will be held at the Poker Room at Aria from 9 June to 13 June. The final table will take place on 13 June and be broadcast live from PokerGo Studio.

The tournament, which will take place during the 2023 Aria Poker Classic, will be followed by six days of BetMGM poker action, which will start on June 8 with a Mystery Bounty event.

The $3,500 buy-in no-limit Hold'em BetMGM Poker Championship at Aria has a $2m guarantee. At least 100 qualifiers from BetMGM Poker markets, including New Jersey, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Ontario, Canada, will compete in the event, which will have two starting flights.

The BetMGM Poker Championship at Aria's online qualifying rounds will begin on 1 May.

Luke Staudenmaier, Director of Poker at BetMGM, said: "It's great to bring BetMGM players back to Las Vegas during one of poker's most exciting times of the year.

“For a second straight year, Aria is delivering a Championship event and we are happy to continue to build on our relationship with MGM Resorts while connecting BetMGM online players to the best poker rooms in the United States."

Online qualifiers will get packages that include travel expenses, a six-night stay at the Aria from June 7–13, 2023, a $3,500 buy-in to the BetMGM Poker Championship and an $800 buy-in to the Mystery Bounty event.

Sean Mccormack, MGM Resorts Director of Poker Strategy, said: "Partnering with BetMGM for another summer championship is a tremendous opportunity for us to offer poker players a one-of-a-kind experience.

"ARIA has doubled the guarantee from last year to $2m, giving the competitors the chance to win one of our industry’s top prize pools."
