I am delighted to say I won the Best Poker Media Provider award at the APAT awards.
My nomination was joint with PokerStrategy.com, but it was all a bit more special for me because I was the only individual writer named out of the nominees, which also included Bluff, UK Pokernews and WPT Magazine.
I love APAT. Dusk Till Dawn rightly get the credit for changing the face of live poker in the UK, but APAT really started the ball rolling with their well structured affordable live events. I don’t think they get the credit they deserve for improving the experience of live poker in Europe.
So what does this award really mean? Well there is no denying awards are to some degree a popularity contest, so it doesn’t by any stretch of the imagination mean I am the best at what I do. But this award means a lot to me because as a self labelled ‘poker media expert’ from ‘poker media pro’ to win the ‘best poker media’ award really is a fantastic business card for me in the future.
