Organised by poker magazine Bluff Europe and sponsored by Unibet, the ceremony will take place tonight at the glamorous Hippodrome Casino. EPT champions Liv Boeree and Victoria Coren Mitchell, as well as London-based World Series of Poker finalist Jorryt van Hoof, will be among those in attendance for what promises to be a stunning ceremony.
Tonight’s festivities begin at 6.30pm with a drinks reception sponsored by social poker platform RankingHero.com, before the awards ceremony itself honours the best players, tournaments, cardrooms and more across more than a dozen categories.
The poker-loving British public can rub shoulders with some of the stars of the game, before taking them on in a specially organised pro-am bounty tournament. A number of fantastic prizes are in store for anyone who knocks out one of the elite professional players taking part.
“We are tremendously excited about this year’s ceremony, and are extremely happy for the winners, but everyone coming along will surely have a great evening,” said Michael Caselli, Bluff Europe Editor-in-Chief and British Poker Awards organiser.
“Huge thanks to our sponsors, judges and media partners for all their help ahead of what we hope will be a truly unforgettable ceremony.”
This year’s nominees were selected by an expert panel comprising poker journalists Matthew Pitt, Lee Davy and Barry Carter, RankingHero.com’s Nicolas Levi, Late Night Poker creator Nic Szeremeta and ‘voice of poker’ Jesse May.
