PKR Praises Winners of British Poker Awards
October 05, 2011
The UK's top online virtual poker site PKR Poker has praised the winners of the British Poker Awards, paying particular tribute to the community of online British players in the game today.
The British Poker Awards is hosted annually and is where new and seasoned pros from the world of poker congregate to show their appreciation for the year's best card players. The free online poker games at PKR are incentivised with big bonuses such as tickets to major live tournaments like the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.
Jake Cody, a young professional Brit, claimed the biggest UK accolade of the night - 'Player of the Year.' Cody's table aggression and skill helped towards him bagging 'Best Tournament Player' for 2011 as well. His passion for the game is evident in his play style, which he sometimes takes to the virtual tables like those at PKR.
Cody enjoyed a hugely successful online year before adding to his long list of honours by winning a World Series of Poker bracelet at the heads-up event in June.
Founded in Britain, PKR have always supported the home grown players like Cody and the site has a great community of Brits who play together regularly in satellite tournaments, cash games and 'grand prix' events.
A spokesperson for the poker site commented:
'We want to say a big congratulations to Jake who thoroughly deserved to win his awards. Young, unique players like him are what make the game immortal and who knows - the next young star could be playing on our online tables right now. We're inviting everybody to play for free on PKR and be in with a chance to go to the big live tournaments.'
The award for 'Best Online Player' went to Chris Moorman, who also hails from the UK. PKR are constantly updating their site with free poker tournaments which can lead to major opportunities like Cody and Moorman have gone on to seize with both hands this year.
