Posted by Steve Ruddock on Dec 14, 2011 Posted in PNB News, Poker Industry News | No Comments »

It’s that time again; time to vote for the 2011 Awards. For 2011 the categories have been streamlined to 10, with 5 Player of the Year Awards up for grabs, as well as five other awards ranging from Poker Moment of the Year to Best Poker Blog.

Last year we opened up our voting for the 2010 awards on our forum and were amazed at the tremendous amount of poker fans who cast their vote for their favorite players, poker sites, and poker portals. This year we will be changing up the process a bit (to keep the ballot box from being stuffed) as we have selected an “expert” panel to handle the selection of the winners in each category.

We still want to hear from our readers, so use the comments section at the end of the article to help sway the panel’s decision! Here is a look at the nominees in the 10 categories for the 2011 Awards:
