The British Poker Awards that is going to be opened for voting on the internet has added another award to its long list of awards.
Apart from the ability that the people have to vote for their favorite personalities in the poker industry or players to win the “Best Cash Player”, “Best Online Player” and “Best Tournament Player”, the people will also have the ability to vote on the newest award to be added which is the “Biggest Contribution to growing and promoting poker” award.
This award joins the list of awards that the players can vote on through the official website of the British Poker Awards. This award includes promoters, players, organizers who have made significant contributions in developing the poker industry of the United Kingdom. The nominee for this award includes the founder of the Genting Poker series, Kevin Proctor and Gary Oakes, the person behind the UKIPT, Kirsty Thompson and BlondePoker’s Rich Pre among others.
The organizer of the event, Michael Caselli commented on this new award by saying that it would be a great honor of the British Award to honor the players and the stars of the game but it is also honored to show its appreciation to the people who helped promoting the game. It is because of these promoters that the poker industry of the United Kingdom is flourishing.
The British Poker Awards ceremony is going to take place on the 17th of September of 2012 on the HMS President. Tickets are already available on the website.
