Sam Trickett Leaves Titan PokerMonday, May 7th, 2012 by Ryan
Sam Trickett has quickly worked his way up to being one of the most well-known poker players in the game today, and it’s for a good reason. Trickett has pulled in some impressive results in recent years on both the live poker tournament circuit, as well as in the online poker game too. He had a deal set with Titan Poker over the past year that had him as one of the featured pros on the site, but it seems that the deal has officially come to an end. Trickett is a professional player from the United Kingdom, and he announced that he was parting ways, leaving the site with only one other sponsored pro in Marvin Rettenmaier. The announcement came on Trickett’s Twitter and Facebook account, as Titan Poker has yet to make a statement about it.
The exact quote that came from Trickett was as follows, “Me an Titan have decided to party ways. I have enjoyed representing them and they was a absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks again Titan…”. This means that Trickett is on the “free agent” market in the online poker game, and based on his popularity it wouldn’t surprise me one bit to see him sign on with another popular online poker site in the very near future. Trickett is probably one of the most marketable players in the game today, and a large part of his popularity comes with the fact that he plays both tournaments and cash games, and the cash games that he plays are very high stakes games as well. You can find him constantly at the Ultra High Stakes games that are played in Macau. As far as the tournaments go he typically plays Super High Roller events and the different major tournament series that are out there as well.
Trickett has brought in some serious results over the past two years, and you can bet that some of the massive online poker sites like PokerStars will definitely have some interest in Trickett. Now, it’s uncertain as to if Trickett is even going to sign with another site in the near future though, so anything from here forward is really just speculation about him. Over the past two years it was reported that Trickett has brought in over £1 million in profits while playing in Macau in each year, a number that is pretty astonishing for the live cash games that are played anywhere.
As far as some of his big time tournament scores go, he won the $100k Super High Roller event at the 2011 Aussie Millions for $1.5 million, then took second place in the $250k Super High Roller event that same year for $1.4 million. He won another nice €1 million score at the 2011 Partouche Tour when he won the Main Event. At the 2010 WSOP he took 2nd place in a No Limit Hold’em event with a $5k buy-in to win $500k, and also had a 4th place finish in the same event at the 2008 WSOP for $245k.
It’s tough to imagine that Trickett doesn’t sign with a big named site like PokerStars just before the 2012 World Series of Poker kicks off, so keep an eye on this over the next few weeks to see where the well-known poker pro ends up landing!
