There will be seven EPT award categories, with an expert panel of judges presiding over the remaining five categories, along with a writer's award.
The remaining five categories are:
* Best Newcomer * Best Performance * Best Overseas Player * Best PokerStars Qualifier * Player of the Year
There are five nominees in each category, and a panel of experts will select the winners based on their performance in season four of the EPT.
Among those up for an award are: Norwegian Trond Erik Eidsvig, who made three final tables in his first EPT season, Briton Julian Thew, who won EPT Baden, Team PokerStars Pro Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier from France, who won the PCA, and Hungarian Denes Kalo who came second in two EPT events including the Monte Carlo Grand Final.
The panel is made up of John Duthie, executive producer of the EPT; Lee Jones, former card room manager of PokerStars; Victoria Coren, writer, TV presenter and Team PokerStars Pro; and John Caldwell, Editor in Chief of PokerNews.
