The 2012 British Poker Awards were held in London this week, and Sam Trickett was definitely treated well by the voters. He swept the three main awards, which were "Player of the Year," "Best Cash Player" and "Best Tournament Player." 

His second place finish and $10.1 million cash in the 2012 Big One for One Drop was no doubt a major reason for the Best Tournament Player and Player of the Year awards; the $4.6 million he earned throughout 2011 was no doubt fresh in the voters' minds too. Trickett has made millions in cash games around the world, which is the obvious qualification for his Best Cash Player honor.

There were several other poker pros who were recognized at the 2012 British Poker Awards, and you can see some of the most notable winners below.

Chris Moorman, "Best Online Player" - When it comes to online poker tournaments, nobody has had a more decorated career than Moorman. He's earned over $8.2 million through online tourneys.

Liv Boeree, "Poker Personality of the Year" - Having won the 2010 EPT San Remo title, Boeree is certainly a very good player. However, her poker award was given because of her fun and pleasant demeanor.

Vanessa Selbst, "Best International Player" - Selbst may not be British, but she was still honored with the Best International Player trophy. Selbst earned $723,005 and won her second WSOP bracelet this year.

Craig McCorkell, "Breakthrough Player of the Year" - A virtual unknown before the start of 2012, McCorkell definitely made a name for himself in the UK poker community after winning the 2012 WSOP $3k NL Hold'em Shootout ($368,593).

Dusk Till Dawn, "Best Card Room" - If you're ever looking for a good place to play poker in England, make sure to check out Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham.
