The 2014 BetVictor Welsh Open was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 19 February and 2 March 2014 at the Newport Centre in Newport, Wales. It was the eighth ranking event of the 2013/2014 season,[1] and the second time that BetVictor sponsored the event.[2] It was also the last time that the event was held in Newport.[3]

Stephen Maguire was the defending champion,[4] but he lost 3–4 against Joel Walker in the last 16.[5]

Ronnie O'Sullivan won his 26th ranking title by defeating Ding Junhui 9–3 in the final.[6] This was O'Sullivan's third Welsh Open title after 2004 and 2005, to equal the record jointly held by John Higgins and Stephen Hendry.[7] In the last frame of the final O'Sullivan made the 105th official maximum break.[8] This was O'Sullivan's record 12th competitive maximum break.[9]
