Sam Trickett won millions last summer, literally. From Macau to Vegas, the lad from Retford hoovered up the dosh. In fact, when we spoke to him, as he attempted to recover from a horrendous hangover, he confirmed that he’d won $800K in the same week, playing online PLO.
And to cap it all, he wins British Poker Player of the Year at the British Poker Awards, presented by Bluff Europe – surely the finest achievement of his career – ahem. Bluff meets a man at the height of his powers.
