The Competitive Edge
As a young man, Sam enjoyed as much sport as he could handle, and football was his game of choice as a child. He would ultimately become a professional footballer with the Hartlepool United team, but a knee injury in 2005 ended his career and sent him on the path to becoming a professional poker player. Sam Trickett has enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top of the poker hierarchy and is now one of the leading high stakes cash & tournament players in the world.

Recognition first came to Trickett in 2010 when he cashed in six WSOP events in Las Vegas. One of those was a second place finish in a $5K NLHE event for $505,725, and another was the final table bubble of the $25K NLHE 6-handed event for $141,168. Back in Europe, he final tabled the European Poker Tour Vilamoura Main Event for €139,681, then won the World Open VI in London for $200K.
In 2011, he won the Aussie Millions Poker Championship A$100K High Roller event for A$1,525,000, and he finished second in the A$250K Super High Roller there for A$1.4 million. Later that year, he won the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event in Cannes for €1 million.

10 Million Dollar Man
In July of 2012, Sam would make history with a second place finish in the 2012 WSOP Big One for One Drop $1 million buy-in event for $10,112,001.
Trickett was recognized for his poker skills in 2010 when he won the Best New Player award at the British Poker Awards. In 2011, he won the Best Cash Player award for his prolific play in some of the biggest games in the world, and is known as one of the best players in tournaments and cash games because of his aggression and lack of fear at the tables. His focus allows him to read fellow players with solid intuition and adds to his reputation as one of the best players in the world, especially among the newer generation of young players.

High Stakes Cash Game Specialist
Along the way, Trickett has discovered that high limit tournaments and cash games are where he shines best, so he spends time regularly in Macau with players like Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey, playing cash games with a group of Asian businessmen for millions of dollars. He has enjoyed that so much that he is learning Mandarin.
