Team PokerStars Pro and staff were recognised for their achievements at the British Poker Awards recently, in an annual ceremony held at The Hippodrome Casino. Tournament director of the European Poker Tour (EPT) and UK & Ireland Poker Tour (UKIPT), Toby Stone, was awarded ‘Best Tournament Director’ for the third consecutive year. Team PokerStars Pro was also well represented as Jake Cody received the award for ‘Best Blogger’ and Daniel Negreanu was named ‘Best International Player’.

On his ‘three-peat’ achievement, Toby Stone said: “I’m absolutely thrilled and humbled to win this again, but I must pay credit to my hard-working floor and dealer team who, without which, none of these events would be possible. They’re among the best in the world and make my job infinitely easier.”

Jake Cody was equally elated after his win: “This was a big surprise and I’m really happy to have won. What makes it even better is that it was a reader’s choice award. To be recognised by the poker fans is amazing.”

EPT London was also nominated for ‘Best UK Tournament’ and ‘PokerStars LIVE at the Hippodrome Casino’ for Best Live Card Room.

Rational Group also wins Socially Responsible Operator of the Year Online

PokerStars and Rational Group were both recipients of International Gaming Awards at the annual ceremony held last night in London. For the third year running, PokerStars won the award for ‘Online Poker Operator of the Year’, and Rational Group was recognised for its stringent and ethical responsible gaming policies by being awarded the ‘Socially Responsible Operator of the Year Online’.
Lee Jones, PokerStars’ Director of Poker Communications, was in attendance to accept the awards. After the ceremony he said, “We are extremely proud and honoured that PokerStars won ‘Online Poker Operator of the Year’ and that Rational Group won ‘Socially Responsible Operator of the Year’, both in tough, competitive fields. Personally speaking, I am perhaps most gratified by the responsible gaming award; it recognizes our long-standing and ongoing commitment to providing a safe and responsible environment for our players."
PokerStars celebrated an historic 2014 that included facilitation of tournament one billion, the launch of the hugely popular Spin & Go tournaments, new gaming licenses in the UK and Bulgaria, and the implementation of casino games in selected markets.
In addition to winning the ‘Online Poker Operator of the Year’ award, PokerStars’ sister site Full Tilt was also a finalist in the same category, as well as ‘Online Casino Operator of the Year’.

It was also a big night for partners of the world’s largest poker site, as the Hippodrome Casino in London won the award for ‘Casino Operator Europe’, and City of Dreams Manila was recognised as the ‘Casino/Integrated Resort of the Year’. Both properties play host to PokerStars LIVE poker rooms.
