Sam Trickett, a young poker pro and member of the Titan Poker Team, was just given the Best New Player Award at the inaugural British Poker Awards Ceremony. The event was held at the Kensington Hotel last September 13 and Trickett was one of those who truly impressed the seasoned pros with his most recent feats at the EPT and the World Open.
Trickett’s Accomplishments in Europe
If you’ve been following the results of the biggest poker tournaments in Europe, then you’ll probably have heard Trickett’s name before. This young man managed to nab so many wins this past few months that one could even consider him unstoppable. He won the first prize of $200,000 at the PartyPoker World Open just earlier this month. That event was held at the Palm Beach Casino in London. Mike Sexton, famous commentator and Hall of Famer, gave a comment about Trickett’s amazing performance at the World Open and reiterated that we’ll probably seeing a lot of this guy. Then, as if one amazing feat for the month wasn’t enough, he went on to play at the EPT Vilamoura in Portugal, where he managed to make it into the final table. Unfortunately, he fell at fourth place and didn’t make it to the top. If he did, the win would have simply been phenomenal. Then again, he did manage to nab €139,680 for that fourth place finish, so it wasn’t exactly what you’d call a loss.
The only reason he got butted out of that one, though, was because he fell into terrible luck at the middle part of the final table. The EPT Vilamoura is the biggest tournament in Portugal, so he got quite a bit of publicity for that one, especially since he was the one who dominated the whole thing before things took an unfortunate turn.
Trickett’s Accomplishments in America
However, Trickett’s accomplishments aren’t limited to his home continent. He also joined the WSOP 2010 and managed to get in the money in several of the events that he joined. The biggest of them was in the $5,000 NL Hold’em Event, where he just barely made it to first place. He finished second, so he wasn’t able to get a bracelet, but he did win a whopping $505,725, so that’s got to count for something. All in all, he won a total of $683,827 in the WSOP this year.
All these accomplishments have earned him the title of “Best New Player”, bringing much honor to the very popular European poker site, Titan Poker.
