Nominees for the Global Poker Awards announced
 

(PRESS RELEASE) -- At least 12 nations will be represented at the Global Poker Awards in March with 16 former winners joining an impressive list of first time nominees.

Leading the way is video content producer Joey Ingram. The former award recipient and multiple time nominee is back this year with an impressive four nominations. His work in the Mike Poste situation certainly did not go unnoticed as his “Investigating Mike Postle Hand Histories from Stones Live” is up for Media Content: Video. Ingram also has nominations for his Poker Life Podcast, Journalist of the Year and People’s Choice for Poker Personality of the Year.

Other multiple nominees include multiple GPI Award winner Lance Bradley with three nods (Journalist, Media Content: Written and Podcast alongside Donnie Peters) and five double nominees: Daniel Negreanu (Vlogger and Podcast with his DAT Poker Podacst teammates), Matt Savage (Industry Person and Tournament Director), Jamie Kerstetter (Broadcaster and Twitter Personality), Lex Veldhuis, Streamer of the Year winner at last year’s ceremony (Streamer, People’s Choice for Poker Personality) and newcomer Hayley Hochstetler, who’s up for Photo of the Year and is co-credited with Aleeyha Jadavji for Media Content: Written.

Ingram, Negreanu, Savage and Veldhuis join Ali Imsirovic, Andrew Neeme, Brad Owen, Bryn Kenney, Cary Katz, Joe Giron, Joe Stapleton, Kevin Mathers, Nick Schulman, Paul Campbell, Alex Foxen and Baryn Boatman as former GPI Award winners who could add some more hardware on March 6th on PokerGO.

Boatman joins Kerstetter, Mathers and Kitty Kuo in Twitter Personality of the Year Award, one of eight new categories for this year’s awards. Boatman’s The Hendon Mob are also featured in Paul Seaton’s “The Unabridged Story of The Hendon Mob”, which is a finalist in the Media Content: Written category.

The players have their say this year as members of the GPI100 have voted as to who was their toughest opposition in 2019. The final four have been revealed as defending Breakout Player of the Year Ali Imsirovic is joined by the current and former GPI National Australia PoYs Kahle Burns and Michael Addamo and former GPI Global #1 and 2019 GPI European Player of the Year Stephen Chidwick.

Meanwhile, the fans still have some work to do. Final four voting is now open in each of the People’s Choice categories: Poker Personality and Best Hand. Fans have until January 31st at 8pm PT in order to submit their votes. Those who voted in the initial round of voting can also submit another ballot in this round.

Congratulations to all the nominees and see you in Las Vegas on 6 March.
