Last week’s first ever poker awards ceremony produced by Bodog was hosted by Bodog founder Calvin Ayre and Brad Garrett of “Everyone Loves Raymond”. The beneficiaries of the awards ceremony included, in addition to the privileged viewing audience, Phil Ivey, Men “The Master' Nguyen, Doyle Brunson, Chip Reese, and Daniel Negreanu.
Ayre set the tone for the evening with an address that celebrated poker's stunning rise in global popularity. Later, he handed out the people's choice award for Favorite Player, which went to Kid Poker himself, Daniel Negreanu.
Among the other notable winners were actress Jennifer Tilly (Best Celebrity Player) and poker great Doyle Brunson (Lifetime Achievement Award). The man known as The Master, Men Nguyen, took home the coveted Player of the Year honor.
Celebrities in attendance included 'Boston' Rob and Amber Mariano ('Survivor'), Christopher Masterson ('Malcolm in the Middle'), Danny Masterson and Laura Prepon ('That 70's Show'), Don Felder of the Eagles and Gilby Clarke, formerly of Guns 'N Roses, among others.
Ayre said after the show, “At Bodog we know we will be celebrating again and again. These kinds of nights will soon be commonplace as our industry continues to eclipse milestones. I'm glad we produced a high-caliber show and I'm also proud we're among those companies who are a driving force in our business.'
