British poker player Sam Trickett won the main prize of the European Poker Awards, pretty much justifying forecasts.
The European Poker Awards, Europe's most prestigious awarding event was organized on the 25th January in the Aviation Club, Paris. Awards were given out in nine categories, and according to expectations, Sam Trickett became Player of the year. The British poker player performed incredibly in 2011: he won the Aussie Millions High Roller event and the grand final of the Partouche Poker Tour, and cashed more than $4.5 million in live tournament winnings.
