The BPA is the awards show where the public gets to decide the winners, picking their favourites from number of categories, including Best Tournament Player, Best Cash Player, Best Online Player and Poker Personality of the Year.
The nominees in each category have been decided by a judging panel that includes Bluff Europe, PokerNews.com, PokerListings.com, PokerStrategy.com and “The Voice of Poker” himself, Jesse May.
The ceremony itself will be held aboard the HMS President in London this coming Monday, 17th September, but there’s still time to cast your vote over the weekend at www.thebritishpokerawards.com.
Michael Caselli, who will be co-presenting the awards said: “These awards work because people are enthused to vote in their droves. As long as the British public are involved, these awards are a success and we get a real true vision of who everyone believes is the best of the best in British Poker.”
