The upcoming The International 10 (TI10) Tournament is one of the most-awaited events in the eSports industry, pitting the best of the best DoTA 2 players for a massive prize pool. Organizer and sponsor Valve is serious with the prize pool part: as of this writing, the current prize pool is at $27,297,119—or roughly over Php 1.3 Billion. Yes, that’s the prize pool for a professional eSports tournament—and it is still increasing.

If TI10 maintains its pace, it can outdo the final prize pool of TI 2019.

As pointed out by eSports Observer, TI10 experienced the biggest prize pool increase on day 30, where it jumped from $16 million to $20 million. At its current pace, TI10 is expected to outdo the total prize pool of TI 2019, which was a little over $34 million.

The TI10 Battle Pass—an in-game purchase where 25% of each purchase goes to the TI10 prize pool—will close on September 19. The TI10 tournament will be held in 2021, though Valve has yet revealed the exact date and location.
