He has always been a big name in the UK but this week Sam Trickett has established himself as one of the big names in world poker at the Aussie Millions. It started earlier this month with stories of Trickett winning a $1 million pot in Macau and was swiftly followed by him taking down the $100,000 high rollers event on Saturday for $1,525,000.
Now he has just come second in the biggest ever buy-in tournament in history, the $250,000 Super High Roller Event. He was defeated by Eric Seidel but still took home a further $1,400,000. Add to that reports he did pretty well in the big cash game in Melbourne and it’s safe to say Sam Trickett is probably the winningest player so far in 2011.
He has already won just under $3 million in tournament earnings this month which puts him up to $4.5 million career earnings overall, just behind the Devilfish and Roland De Wolfe on the England all-time money list – the way he is running you wouldn’t put it past him to claim the number one spot before the year is out.
