The Public voting weekend was a big succes for Pokahnights and for Days of Poker. Both our project won the public voting. This means that already 30% of both awards is secured. We truly hope that also the jury can appreciate our projects as we are totally ready to welcome the Hattrick Award for Pokahnights and the Maiden Trip Award for the Days of Poker project. We are excited!
The Belgian Poker Awards have grown to a yearly tradition where Belgian poker players, organisers and supporters are celebrated. The 2019 edition is coming up! This year the festivities will be held from Thursday 10 until Sunday 14 April at the Casino of Spa.
On Saturday, April 13, the awardshow will be held and the Super Star Championship with a buy-in of 1.100 euro will start. The guaranteed prizepool for the Championship is no less than 50.000 euro! Are you thinking: “All right, sign me up!”, well then, Pokahnights and Days of Poker have news for you. Together we will organise 8 Qualifiers in these upcoming weeks with a lot of tickets for the Belgian Poker Awards.
Pokahnights does the hattrick?
In the 2017 and 2018 edition, Pokahnights was able to snatch the award for Best Pokerclub/Organisation of the Year. Of course, we're over the moon with those awards. This year, we hope to make the hattrick and win for the third time in a row. Last year, our chairman, Kristof De Deken, was awarded an award for the Contribution to the Growth of Poker in our country. Proud!
Will you help us to obtain this third award? Thanks!
Belgian Poker Awards
The Belgian Poker Awards were organised in 2017 for the first time. It is an initiative from Belgian players and organisers to put the most important players from the Belgian pokerscene in the spotlights. This year a jury consisting of 40-or-so people that all have something to do with poker in Belgium will be deciding which nominees are eligible for an award. After that, there will be a public voting. The best players from Belgium will attend the VIP reception and awardshow at 7pm. The Super Star Championship will start at 5pm that day.
Jérôme Sgorrano, Gary Hasson and Bernard De Breyne have already confirmed their attendance. Without a doubt there will be a lot more famous (Belgian) pokerplayers that will participate in the prestigious tournament. If you’ve always wanted to sit among the “big ones”, then you better grasp the opportunity.
Of course a buy-in of 1.100 euro is not that simple to put on the table, that’s exactly the reason why we’re organising qualifiers for the Super Star Championship Phase 1!
You have no less than 8 chances to qualify for the Phase 1: 4 times live at Pokahroom Antwerpen, and 4 times online at the Days of Poker freeroll events! All qualified players will receive an entry ticket for the Phase 1 tournament. Apart from that they can also attend the VIP reception with award show and enjoy the walking dinner.
4 Live Qualifiers
The live qualifiers in Pokahroom Antwerpen will be hosted every Saturday, starting March 16 until April 6. The events are played with a structure of 10 minute blinds and 25.000 chips. Registration is possible from 10pm until 11:30pm. You can participate in the Pokahnights events for 20 euro! One out of every 8 players will qualify.
Dates: March 16, March 23, March 30, April 6

In every qualifier there are 1, 2 or 4 tickets up for grabs, depending on the amount of subscribed players. Less than 64 participants: 1 ticket, between 64 and 128: 2 tickets and over 128 participants: 4 tickets. Let’s break that record together!

We’ll be reserving the seats for the qualified players on Saturday, April 13 for the Turbo Phase 1 starting at 1pm. You’ll start with a stack of 25.000 chips and the blind levels will go up every 15 minutes.
The stack that you’ve gathered at the end of Phase 1, will be your starting stack for the Super Star Championship.
