Created just last year by poker businessman / visionary Winfred Yu, Poker Dream has rapidly risen to one of the most sought after festivals in Asia. Its appeal spans from eager recreational players to the super high rollers of the poker world. At Poker Dream Manila held last April, among the attendees were Triton Poker multi-winner Wai Kin Yong and famous poker guru Tom Dwan.

To distinguish itself from other brands, Poker Dream has continuously tested fresh new ideas. A prime example was at the Poker Dream Taiwan Main Event where a variety of buy ins and formats were offered, opening the doors for a diverse crowd. As a result, it generated a Poker Dream Main Event record prize pool of roughly USD 865K.

In addition, Poker Dream introduced the Dream Bonus. For every multiple stack bagged at the Main Event, the player receives instant cash!

With the event just around the corner, players have one more exciting promo to take advantage of, the Guess And Win competition. Players are invited to take a guess at the total number of entries to the Malaysia Open event. A Main Event ticket worth RM 1,700 awaits three lucky winners. This promo ends on August 10, 2023 at 11:59pm so act fast and post your guess.

The MAIN EVENT packs a massive RM 4,000,000 (~USD 874,000) prize pool. This is the largest guarantee ever put forth by Poker Dream, even larger than its record prize pool of roughly USD 865K set in Taiwan last June 2023. Here’s a breakdown of the key events, events with guarantees, and the high roller schedule.
