Player Of The Month And Young Gun Of The Month Awards

PokerNetwork features the largest archive of land-based poker tournament results in Australia and New Zealand dating back to 2001. Our poker results archive forms the basis for the PokerNetwork Australasian Rankings (PAR) system which provides a comprehensive ranking of Australian and New Zealand players, with previous "Player of the Year" winners including Sam Korman, Michael Guttman, Leo Boxell, Lee Nelson and Jozef Berec.

Each month PokerNetwork recognizes the achievements of Australian players with the Player of the Month and Young Gun of the Month, awarded for success in both online and live tournaments around the world.

Player of the Month (POM) and Young Gun of the Month (YGOM) will be selected based on a player's performance in the month/s leading up to the award date. While live tournament results form the primary basis of these awards, if any player has a significant result online, or in cash games, we will endeavour to recognise it. The Calendar Year for selection is 1 Jan to 31 Dec and no nominee may win more than once in the same category in this period of time.

Player of the month will normally be a senior well-performed player over a period of time.
Young Gun of the Month will normally be under 30 (circa) and/or a relative newcomer to poker.

Nominations for both POM and YGOM are always welcome. Players may mail their suggestions to .
