On Sunday, February 13, 2011 the <em>Aviation Club de France</em> in Paris hosted the <em>European Poker Awards </em>ceremony. <strong>Jake Cody</strong> is awarded with the title <em>Player of the Year</em>, while the <em>Internet Player of the Year </em>is <strong>Andreas<em> &rsquo;skjervoy&rsquo;</em> Torbergsen</strong>.
The tenth European Poker Awards, the greatest European ceremony of the kind, was held on February 13 in Paris, France. Players were awarded in eight categories and nomination was dominated by the British with 15 applicants in total for the various titles.

As it turns out, the Brits did actually win quite a number of awards, including the most coveted Player of the Year title, which went to Jake Cody, 2010 winner of EPT Deauville and WPT London. Moreover, he was also chosen Rookie of the Year. Additional players from the UK to win a title were EPT San Remo champion Liv Boeree (Europe’s Leading Lady) and WSOPE Main Event winner James Bord (Outstanding Tournament Performance).
