Partypoker sign a new deal with the legendary Sam Trickett. Trickett began working as a plumber for friend before training to become a gas fitter. During this time he found his love for online poker and now finds himself at the Number 1 player spot on the UK’s all-time money list.
He did not know that he would become a professional poker player at the time he began winning tournaments, instead he saw it as an easy way to make an extra income. Trickett was also forced to quit his dreams of becoming a professional football player due to injury at a young age. He needed to find something to fill the gap and poker was the way forward from there.
Trickett has now taken home winnings of more than $20.5 million (around £16.5 million) from live poker tournaments since smashing online poker since 2007.
Trickett said in a press release “I am proud to be joining the expanding Partypoker team and represent the brand globally, Partypoker was always my first site and I am excited about the direction the company is taking, with the players and a fun feel at the forefront of their minds. I am going to bring monthly high-stakes games online, which my friends and partypoker players can enjoy. Over the coming weeks I will plan my live events schedule for 2017 and look forward to getting back on the tournament circuit wearing the partypoker patch.”
Sam Trickett has also tweeted:
