The 2014 Dafabet Masters professional non-ranking snooker tournament took place between 12–19 January 2014 at the Alexandra Palace in London, England.[1] This was the first time that Dafabet sponsored the event.[2]

Ronnie O'Sullivan set a new record by scoring 556 unanswered points in a professional event in his 6–0 quarter-final win against Ricky Walden.[3] The previous record-holder was Ding Junhui, who scored 495 unanswered points against Stephen Hendry at the 2007 Premier League Snooker.[4]

O'Sullivan set another record by reaching the final of the Masters for a tenth time, surpassing the nine appearances by Stephen Hendry.[5][6] He won his fifth Masters title by defeating defending champion Mark Selby 10–4 in the final.[7][8]
