The three instalments of the DH Masters tour (Summer, Fall, Winter) will each see its prize pool increased by $41,000 both this year and next year. This added prize money will be allocated to the regional qualification tournaments (Europe, NA, etc) and thus not to the main Season Finals tournaments.
The DH Masters Last Chance tournaments will also see a minor increase in prize pool: the first place finisher will receive an additional $2,000, taking the first prize to a total of $10,000.
The prize money taken from the global tournament IEM Katowice will thus not be added to other global tournaments, meaning players' opportunity to compete for this prize pool will be determined by which region they belong to, and Korean players will not be able to compete for any, save the relatively tiny amount added to the DH Masters Last Chance first prize.
ESL also confirmed that the tournaments at IEM Katowice in 2022 as well as 2023 will each have a total prize pool of $500,000.
