Spanish Poker Awards to hit Estrellas Poker Tour
Season 2 of the Estrellas Poker Tour is about to kick-off in Madrid and to match the occasion PokerStars is proud to announce the new Spanish Poker Awards which will recognize the top performances during the season 2 of Estrellas Poker Tour.
There are 8 awards up for grabs:
Estrellas Player of the Year, Online Qualifier of the Year, Grinder of the Year and Best Spanish Online Tournament Player which will be awarded based on players' own performance at the tables. Spanish Players' Choice of the Year, Outstanding International Achievement and Best Dressed Player will be voted on by Spanish players and finally the Best Poker Writer which is to be decided by the Estrellas judging panel.

All the winners will receive the Award in a special Spanish Poker Awards ceremony during the Estrellas event in Ibiza next September where we will crown the new Estrellas Player of the Year!
This award will be given to the player that earns most points in the new and improved Estrellas Leaderboard. In the upcoming season players will be able to earn points for their performance at side events in all stops of the Tour and the points awarded will reflect the number of players on each event.
Alvaro Marino Nadal is the reigning champion after having topped the season 1 Leaderboard by only 10 points. He was closely followed by David Lopez Nuñez (2nd) and José Luis Navarro Giner (3rd).
The top 5 players in the new Leaderboard will also win special live prizes while the top 100 will be invited to play an online freeroll.
