British Poker Awards 2011 nomination. ORLY?!

I am very pleased to have been nominated for the "Best Blogger" award in The British Poker Awards 2011.

I was even more pleased before I checked out the other categories and nominations. I mean just lol at some of them:

Roland de Wolfe is nominated for "Best Cash Game Player" and "Best Poker Personality". Roland seems a very likeable guy, but I think "nicest donk" would be a more apt category.

"Best PLO Player" sees the Devilfish and John Shipley get nominations. Perhaps these nominations are retrospective, seeing as the British Poker Awards are only in their second year, and they are making up for not existing in the year 2000?!

"Best Social Media User" sees Keith "the Camel" Hawkins get a nomination. I like @keiththecamel, but even he has probably had a laugh about this one. A solid 90% of his tweets are about football ffs! Even more comic is Sam Trickett's inclusion in this category. @Trickett1986 has made all of 119 tweets, and only 57 people like his Facebook Page! To be fair he is probably too busy making shit-loads of money to use Twitter or Facebook much.

I'm thinking my edge in the "Best Blogger" category might be the fact I am on the only nominee who has a dedicated RSS feed for their own content! "Really Simple Syndication" apparently isn't so simple after all!

Conspicuous by his absence in the Best Blogger category is the author of the self-proclaimed "Best Poker Blog in the World™" Daleroxxu, who apparently isn't even the Best Blogger in Great Britain! Or even one of the top 5 for that matter! Unlucky Dale. I hope you ship the Best Social Media User award though. I was going to vote for you, but I swerved at the last minute and decided to vote for Keith Hawkins. I mean, I'm quite a big football fan myself after all!

Unfortunately I won't be able to attend the award ceremony as I shall be on my honeymoon, but I'm sure I can conjure up a YouTube acceptance speech! So if you'd like to make that a possibility, vote for me @ :)

i like your blog too^^

do you try SNE next year? the rake demands are a joke and i hate stars because of the "rake farce" (no rake change).

imo the showdown speed has gone down, no more "boom boom bomm" ^^.
