“It&s been a great year for British Poker, with lots of really young guys coming through and established guys, like Sam Trickett, cementing themselves as worldwide superstars of the game,” said organizer Michael Caselli. “The British Poker Awards is part of the wider London Poker Festival, which is all about celebrating the game in this country, so it&s only natural that the poker community itself should decide who gets the awards.”
