Sam Trickett is a 25-year-old professional poker player from East Retford, England, is well-positioned with a second-place chip count of 37,000,000.
Arriving at the final table second in chips, Sam Trickett is without doubt one of the best players in the world and one of the favorites at this final table.
In 2010, Trickett had one of the best years of any player as he collected six World Series of Poker cashes including two final tables in a $5,000 No-Limit Holdem and the $25,000 No-Limit Holdem Six-Handed. A fourth place in the European Poker Tour Vilamoura Main Event saw Trickett close out the year with over $1 million in earnings.
In 2011, things got even better for him, if you can believe that. Trickett earned over $4.5 million and grabbed not one, not two, but three million-dollar scores. He started of the year winning the Aussie Millions A$100,000 Challenge for A$1.525 million. He then finished runner-up in the Aussie Millions A$250,000 Super High Roller for A$1.4 million. Both of those were in the month of January in Melbourne. Later that year, Trickett scored first in the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event for a smooth €1 million. He also final tabled the €5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event at the WSOP Europe in October of 2011 for another €77,642.
