Awarded by People’s Choice
Award presented to the poker player from the USA or Canada judged to have been the game’s best ambassador in 2014, making a positive impact on poker while engaging its fans.
Just what makes a great poker ambassador? It’s not just a popularity contest, that’s for sure. The best ambassador works hard not only on the felt, but also off it, promoting the game. Poker’s best ambassador is also a player who connects with the fans and works at helping to find new players to play the game that we all love so much.
This is the only award where the public will have their say. Poker fans will be asked to vote online in January 2015 for whom they believe is the best American ambassador and the short list will then be presented to the members of the Jury, who will validate the votes and the winner.
