ONCHAN, Isle of Man -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The European Poker Tour Season 10 London event was named Best U.K. Tournament at last night’s glittering British Poker Awards, while EPT London Tournament Director Toby Stone was named Best Tournament Director.
The PokerStars.com EPT London Poker Festival ran from October 2-12 last year at the stunning Grand Connaught Rooms in the heart of the city. For the second time, the EPT joined forces with the regional U.K & Ireland Poker Tour to create a spectacular 11-day, 38-event festival. More than 600 players from 54 countries competed in the EPT Main Event and, across the whole festival, more than £10.3 million was awarded in prizes.
Team PokerStars Pros Daniel Negreanu and Victoria Coren were also among the evening’s winners at The Hippodrome Casino London in Leicester Square, picking up trophies for Best International Player of the Year and Best Social Media User, respectively. In addition, PokerStars Team Online’s Alex “Kanu7” Millar was recognized as Player of the Year and Best Online Cash Player.
A slew of other EPT players were also recognized, including Chris Moorman for Best Online Tournament Player and Sam Trickett for Best Live Tournament Player & Best Live Cash Player. British pro Barny Boatman celebrated a double win and picked up Performance of the Year and Lifetime Achievement. Boatman has been playing EPTs since the very first season, and picked up his first WSOP bracelet last summer. This is Boatman’s second Lifetime Achievement award in two months after he scooped the European Poker Awards version during EPT Deauville in January. It was also a great night for EPT sponsor PokerTracker, which won Best Poker Software.
