Live from the Las Vegas PokerGO Studio. Friday 5th of April 2019 - Stream starts 8PM ET - 2AM CET

Poker Awards from 2001 to today

The tradition started in Europe back in 2001. The glitz and glam followed us to Los Angeles in 2014. In 2019, we move to Las Vegas and introduce the Global Poker Awards, where the rich history of poker awards will be shared the globe over.

From poker playing icons like Devilfish, Negreanu, Hansen and ElkY, to the industry’s best, to the stars in the media, over 200 Awards have been presented.

All 204 winners of American and European Poker Awards can be found on our timeline below
