American Poker Awards

Tags: American Poker Awards, Dan Smith, Daniel Colman, Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Selbst.
Posted on 03 March 2015 by "T".

The very first Annual American Poker Awards Ceremony (sponsored by PokerStars) took place in Beverly Hills on February 27th, 2015, and around 200 guests attended the event, including elite poker players, industry leaders and operators from the North American Poker World.

Daniel Colman (did not show up for the event) had an incredible year at the poker tables in 2014, so it wasn't a big surprise that he would take down the biggest award of the night: GPI Poker Player of the Year. Other big names to win awards included Team PokerStars Pros Daniel Negreanu (Poker's Best Ambassador) and Vanessa Selbst (GPI FEMALE PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARD).

Dan Colman thoroughly deserved to win the player of the year award and what a year he had. I was glad to read that Daniel Negreanu won the best ambassador award, congrats to all the winners

I have to agree that Colman had some brilliant results last year so deserved the player of the year award.Daniel Negreanu is always a good pro and Mark Newhouse deserved his award for his last couple of WSOP main event exploits.

There are way too many awards for nothing, LOL. I mean giving away statues for media content and media personality is a bit far out of the field of cardgames IMO but of course who am I to criticize these people and their decisions. CHARITABLE INITIATIVE OF THE YEAR is another category I cannot put anywhere.

This kind of thing is like the globs for hollywood, there is a show every year of globs, but others want to nomanete and congratulate people for what they do in the year, that you have like five or six show similar the globs, that maybe the same people win in the both shows, and others is more like, take this for your year, and desapear.
And this is like that, is one show every year that give the players the credit, and some other shows similar but not good that give some awards to some people that they not do anything relevante, but is the world.

Enjoy sun and life, keep playing safe.

i prefer AVN Awards

(AVN Awards are movie awards sponsored and presented by the American adult video industry trade magazine AVN (Adult Video News) to recognize achievement in various aspects of the creation and marketing of American pornographic movies. They are called the "Oscars of porn" Blink

But there are plenty more serious 'sport' or recreational activity where they aren't do this. This 'patting each other on the back for nothing' is sooo Hollywood I cannot even begin to tell you how ridiculous...
