Sam Trickett Continues With Titan PokerJune 17, 2011 8:19 am
It has just been announced that Team Titan member Sam Trickett will continue representing the online poker room throughout 2011.
The 24 year-old English poker pro joined the site back in March 2010, during which time he has been representing Titan at major poker events around the world
It has also proved to be a most successful sponsorship arrangement as Sam Trickett has hardly been out of the poker limelight in all that time. Currently on $4,644,899 in live tournament earnings, Trickett has won more than $4 million of that amount since joining Titan Poker.
Trickett’s achievements during that time include a 2nd place finish at the 2010 WSOP $5k No Limit Hold’em Event for $505,725, and more recently a victory at the Aussie Millions $100k No Limit Hold’em for $1,508,258, and a 2nd place finish at the $250k Aussie Millions Super High Roller No Limit Event for $1,384,631.
Not bad results for a player who is considered a high stakes cash games specialist and even admitted prefering playing cash games more as he finds them “more challenging because decisions are often quite straight forward in tournaments.”
Alongside such players as Tom Dwan, John Juanda and Phil Ivey, Sam Trickett was active at the Macau Big Game in late 2010, where he won around £1 million playing against wealthy Chinese businessmen.
Sam Trickett’s poker career began just five years ago and he found the game after a knee injury put paid to his his chosen career as a semi-professional soccer player.
When asked what he most enjoys and dislikes about being a professional poker player, Sam Trickett replied:
“I like the life style, you don’t have to answer to anyone and you play when you want to. I also like how easy money can come and go. I hate playing badly, I would rather play good and lose and play bad and win sometimes.”
