The British Poker Awards

The British Poker Awards

Monday, 23 September 2013

The nominees are...

“And the award for the sickest 4-bet shove goes to…” Back for its fourth radiant year this October, we present the British Poker Awards, an evening in which we get to honour the effulgent wondrousness of the British Poker Community. We need your help, though. An independent panel of experts including PokerNews’ Matthew Pitt, PokerListings' Barry Carter, “Voice of Poker” Jesse May, bloggers extraordinaire Jen Mason and Lee Davy, not to mention Bluff Europe’s very own Philip Conneller, have been working around the clock to bring you the nominees in 12 Readers’ Choice categories. We think we’ve got the right chaps, but we need you to choose the winners. Vote for your favourite British poker players online now at

We’ll be announcing the date and the venue shortly, so watch this space.
