After the European Poker Awards and the Nordic Poker Awards comes news of an awards ceremony to honour the players on the EPT.
The great and the good of the European Poker Tour will be in Monte Carlo for the Grand Final in April and it won’t just be for the top class tournament action. PokerStars will be honouring the top performers on the EPT by hosting a lavish awards ceremony on 30th April, the final night of the Grand Final. The Awards up for grabs are: • EPT Country of the Year • EPT Online Qualifier of the Year • EPT Omaha Player of the Year • EPT Mixed Game Player of the Year • EPT Player of the Year • EPT Achievement of the Year (voted for by EPT players) • EPT People’s Choice Award (voted for by EPT players) Five of the seven gongs will be awarded to players who win the most points throughout the season with the Achievement of the Year and People’s Choice Award being decided by a public vote. Points will be awarded in the 13 EPT Main Events and in all EPT side events that have a buy in of more than $1,000. EPT founder and CEO John Duthie said: “We had an EPT Awards a few years back but it was far more subjective and I think the system that’s now been set up is going to prove extremely fair – and create some really interesting results. I particularly like the fact that player performance in side events is now being recognised. Side events are becoming an increasingly important feature at EPTs and offer a great range of alternatives to players – both in terms of the poker variations offered and in the wide range of buy-ins. The points are pretty close at present - and we could end up with a nail-biting finish for many of the awards.”
