Remko Rinkema from Oude Biltzijl in Friesland, The Netherlands, has won the Media Person of The Year Award 2015.
Remko started in the industry as a poker fan almost 10 years ago when he voluntarily helped out the Dutch PokerNews team with live-reporting at the Master Classics of Poker Amsterdam. From there, he never lost his enthusiasm for the game, live-reporting, podcasts, social media and grew in every aspect of both work and life.
Remko is now recognized as one of the best in the poker media. A very well deserved award.
I'm overwhelmed with all the responses after winning the European Media Person of the Year award. Thank you all so much! It means the world.
