Taiwan Millions Tournament

The Chinese Texas Hold’em Poker Association aka CTP Club has upped the bar on its popular homegrown Taiwan Millions Tournament (TMT) with the upcoming Season 16 Main Event boasting a jaw-dropping USD $1 Milllon guaranteed prize pool. 

While this figure may seem ambitious, the beloved tournament’s ever-growing turnout along with CTP’s relentless drive suggest otherwise. The upcoming season aims to attract a much larger crowd as it extends its reach beyond Taiwan. Currently in the works are Main Event Day 1 flights held in Hong Kong, Japan, Philippines, and several other locations. CTP Chief Executive Officer, David Tai said,

“We are thrilled to see the TMT grow each season and are committed to enhancing the experience for our players. Season 16 promises to be our most exciting yet, with a record-breaking prize pool and the inclusion of overseas Day 1 events. We look forward to welcoming players from around the globe to Taiwan.”

The historic event takes place from July 21 to July 29, 2024 at the Asia Poker Arena in Taipei City, Taiwan. Buy in is an affordabe NTD 9,000 (~USD $280).
