The GPI European Poker Awards have been celebrating the achievements of players, industry operators, and personalities within the thriving European poker scene for over 13 years.
The acquisition of the American awards ceremony was to ensure its legitimacy, and expand it globally. Moreover, I love the way it is organised with a nomination panel and an independent Jury, which I believe is the best way to make it completely transparent and accurate.
The American Poker Awards feature expert nomination panels and independent juries to decide on award winners across a diverse array of categories – with the exception of Player of the Year honors – which are awarded impartially based on American players’ GPI Player of the Year Leaderboard scores.
Players and industry leaders from a diverse array of categories and backgrounds will be honored, in addition to awards for America’s best poker venues, best poker events, best online initiatives, and best poker innovations, amongst many others.
Venue: SLS Hotel, Beverly Hills, California, USA.
