The British Poker Awards are just a fortnight away now and one of the most competitive categories on the night is likely to be the Performance of the Year honour.
There were so many great achievements from players from the UK last year it's tough to predict a winner. Will it be Hendon Mobster Barny Boatman who won his maiden WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 event? Or how about triple award nominee Matt Ashton who took down the WSOP Players' Championship for over $1.7m? Matt Perrins also enjoyed his trip to Vegas, securing a second bracelet and earnings of over $800k.Rounding out the list of contenders are David Vamplew and Stephen Chidwick. Both missed out on bracelet glory but still enjoyed memorable times at the Rio. Vamplew managed a pair of second place finishes at the 2013 WSOP which helped him boost his bankroll by over three quarters of a million dollars.If Luca Pagano is the cashing machine on the EPT then Chidwick was the Italian's equivalent at last year's WSOP. The Englishman notched up nine cashes throughout the series including two final table appearances.“2013 was a special year for British players at the World Series of Poker, and there is little to choose between the five nominees,” said Michael Caselli, editor-in-chief of Bluff Europe Magazine. “To see five British players each winning more than half a million dollars shows the depth of talent in the UK, and all five will be hungry to repeat their success this year.”We'll find out the winner of the best performance of the year and all of the other winners on 3rd March.Tickets for the event at the Hippodrome Casino are on sale now, priced at just £20.
