Gavin Smith, a professional poker player, has made the big leagues. He has recently been named the Season IV Player of the Year of the World Poker Tour. He received this honorable title during the tournament, where his play and performance shined.

With a first-place finish at the Mirage Poker Showdown, and three separate $10,000 buy-in World Poker Tour events, the world, and online casino poker fans, knew Smith was destined for greatness. Online casino poker players now have a new idol in the poker realm, and he is quickly making a name for himself and a leader in this popular pastime. Online casinos poker players everywhere will be aspiring to Smith’s level of skill and poker play.

According to Full Tilt Poker representative and professional poker player, Howard Lederer, ‘Getting to a WPT final table is an accomplishment achieved by many, but making three final tables in one season, including a win, shows that Gavin is among poker’s elite competitors.’ Smith is the third Full Tilt Poker representative to earn this special honor, following in the footsteps of set by Team Full Tilt members Howard Lederer in Season I and Erick Lindgren in Season II. It seems that online casino poker lovers have a list of pros to watch and learn from. And with the help of free play and amazingly realistic games on the Internet, online casino poker fans can become top competitors as well.

As poker becomes more popular around the world and both online casino and land-based poker become more justified and ‘legitimate’ forms of income, thanks to high skill and numerous tournaments and opportunities to show and use that skill, more and more online casino poker lovers will be trying their luck at the tables. They, too, would like to be called the next Player of the Year.
