It had been a long wait, but in November 2023, we brought everything back to poker’s spiritual home for a gold-tinted month. It was the first major live poker festival in Vegas under the PokerStars banner in 12 years.

NAPT Las Vegas 2023 was an incredible festival with huge events, fantastic activities away from the tables, and countless fascinating stories from qualifiers and pros alike.

It was Sami Bechahed — a five-year poker pro from Costa Mesa, California — who took down the $1,650 Main Event, earning his fourth six-figure score.
