Dates: July 14th to July 31st
Main Event Buy-In: NTD 8,000
The Taiwan Millions Tournament (TMT) is back for its 14th edition, and action is already underway! Kicking off on July 14, 2023, the beloved homegrown festival was off to an incredible start. On opening day, over 500 players poured in for the Freeroll to the Kick-Off event. The overwhelming response resulted in a long line and a cap of 10 tables. The energy continued to surge on the second day with the Kick-Off event setting a new record of 1,264 entries and generating double the NTD 2,000,000 guarantee.
From its humble beginnings of just ten events, TMT has grown immensely in five short years. The latest edition, TMT 14, is designed to be bigger than ever with an extended 18 days of non-stop poker running from July 14 to 31 at the newly opened Asia Poker Arena in Taipei City, Taiwan.
A couple of standout features is the enormous NTD 20,000,000 (~USD 648,400) in guaranteed prize pools, which is a significant increase compared to the previous edition. The Main Event, with its NTD 10,000,000 (~USD 324,200) guarantee, is also a substantial boost.

To date, the richest TMT was the 12th edition with a grand festival payout over NTD 39.5 Million equivalent to 1.3 Million USD. If TMT 14 continues its blockbuster pace, it should easily breach that figure.
Another noteworthy aspect of TMT 14 is the number of events. With 40 scheduled tournaments, that’s exactly twice the amount of the previous edition. Two players have already captured trophies, Chih Hsien Lin (Warm Up Giant Stack), and Jia Chi Lee (NLH Turbo).
As always, prices are very affordable with buy ins ranging from NTD 2,500 (~USD 81) to NTD 22,000 (~USD 700). There are also Daily Deepstack events held every night with buy in of NTD 1,500 (~USD 48). Here’s look at some of the key events.
