Sam Trickett Departs Everest Poker

Sam Trickett Departs Everest Poker In March 2014, the UK’s number one tournament earner Sam Trickett was signed as Everest Poker’s brand ambassador, but a little over one year later and the 28 year old pro has now parted ways with the site. Following his departure, the Everest Poker Campaigns manager commented:
“We’d like to thank him for his contribution to Everest Poker in the past 12 months and we’re really looking forward to a summer with some exciting news just around the corner.”
During Trickett’s tenure with Everest the Brit managed to amass $679,757 in winnings, including in his first month finishing runner-up at the WPT Venice €3,000 Main Event for €65,888 ($91,418). However, Trickett biggest score came a few months later in August 2014 at the €50,000 Super High Roller in Barcelona, where he eventually finished in 5th place for a €288,400 ($386,346) payday.
Nevertheless, it was at the 2014 WSOP where Sam Trickett was expected to have made his biggest splash, and at the time a special promotion was organized in which Everest players stood to win as much as 10% of his WSOP earnings. In the end, however, Trickett cashed in just two tournaments for a combined $69,136, which would have been a great disappointment for the players and the site alike. As an Everest Poker statement explains:
“Sam’s time as the sponsored pro with Everest Poker was one which saw some real highs for us, both as an online poker room and fans of the game. Our players had a really unique way of enjoying Sam’s progress at the World Series of Poker last year through our “Share 10% of Sam,” and Sam has been an exemplary ambassador for our brand.”
Despite a recent lack of cashes on the live tournament scene, Sam Trickett still remains number 6 on the ‘All Time Money List’ with $20,566,809 in winnings, $10,112,001 of which comes courtesy of his runner-up finish at the 2012 WSOP The Big One for One Drop in Las Vegas. In addition, Trickett is also a prolific cash game player and as he recently tweeted:
“Been so busy in the cash games this year.I am starting to miss not playing the WSOP events.”
