European Poker Awards on Wednesday

By Matt Kaufman, Rakeback.com Poker News Editor

Every poker player wants to win a WSOP bracelet and titles on major tournament circuits like the EPT and WPT. That said, some honors within the poker world are won away from the tables via the recognition of the community.
