Following two rounds of preliminary voting by an industry panel, the Global Poker Index has revealed the nominees for the 5th Annual Global Poker Awards.

Several awards not listed below have already been determined. Bin Weng has won GPI Poker Player of the Year, Kristen Foxen picks up her fourth GPI Female Poker Player of the Year, and Nick Pupillo has won the Mid-Major Player of the Year. All three awards were determined by the final 2023 GPI rankings.

GGPoker’s Game of Gold has also won the GPI Award of Merit and several other trophies will be handed out for categories on Tuesday’s published list.

Final voting for the GPI Fans Choice Awards has also begun for Best Hand, Best Trophy, Best Live Stream, and Poker Personality, and will close next Wednesday.
