Jake Cody Wins Best UK Tournament Poker Player Award

The results are out for the 2011 British Poker Awards, and scooping the prize for this year’s ‘Best Tournament Player,’ as well as ‘Player of the Year’ is  Jake Cody.
Despite only playing for a short few years, Cody has already achieved a Triple Crown in the game, having won an EPT, WPT and a WSOP title, a remarkable feat not lost on the British public who voted for him.
Starting out on his road to poker celebrity, the prodigious poker pro first burst onto the scene in January, 2010, at the €5k EPT Deauville Main Event after overcoming a field of 768 players for a massive €857,000 ($1,215,034) pay day.
After a few smaller wins, in August the same year Cody then took down the £5k WPT London event for £273,783 ($445,901), before capping off his Triple Crown Achievement with a win this year at the WSOP $25k Heads-Up Poker Championship for  $851,192.
In total, the young player from Rochdale, England, has now won an impressive $2,670,443 from live tournaments, including $1,712,947 in 2010, and $950,791 in 2011 so far.
In addition to his live tournament results, Jake ‘neverbluff67’ Cody, has won a further $671,985 playing online at Full Tilt.
Congratulations to Jake Cody on scooping a deserved two awards at this year’s British Poker Awards ceremony, which was voted upon by the British poker public. As to what makes him such a formidable poker player, Cody explained:
“My strengths are definitely my aggression and fearlessness and my knowledge of stack sizes and raise calling ranges. I’m becoming so much better at reading game flow… My biggest weakness is probably that I have a tendency to be over aggressive and try to force things too much, especially in smaller tournaments.”
