Jake Cody was the biggest winner of this year's British Poker Awards, he took down the Best Tournament Player and the Player of the Year awards as well. The ceremony was held as the highlight of the 2011 Poker in the Park festival in London.
As we announced, The British Poker Awards was held for the second time this year; awards were given in 15 disctinct categories. Richard Ashby scored the most nominations, namely for the Best Cash Game Player, the Best Online Player, the Best Mixed Game Player, and the Best PLO Player. However, Jake Cody managed to take down the most trophies, for being the Player of the Year and the Best Tournament Player.

The British Poker Awards

It is not at all surprising that Jake Cody got the most votes (as the awards were mostly open to public voting), he won an EPT, a WPT and a WSOP title last year ($25.000 NLHE - Heads-Up Championship, $851.192), completing his first Triple Crown.
