Sam Trickett Nominated for Three British Poker Awards

August 17, 2011

One of the Team Titan members from the distinguished players sponsored by Titan Poker, Sam Trickett, has been honored with not one but three nominations for the British Poker Awards.

Trickett has been nominated for “Best Tournament Player,” “Best Cash Player,” and “Best Social Media User.” Online voters will select the winners for these categories and will then be announced at a special ceremony at Hanover Square, London during the Poker in the Park on September 3rd.

This is the second year for the British Poker Awards, and last year at the first ceremony, Trickett won the title for “Best New Player.”

Since his last year win, he has demonstrated what a skillful tournament player he is, particularly for winning the Aussie Millions $100K Challenge and then for landing second place in the Aussie Millions $250K Super High Roller event. At the World Poker Tour National Series Paris, Trickett cashed in 6th place and had two cashes at the WSOP. In 2011 alone, he’s earned just under $3 million, an impressive number for any player.

He also experienced a very profitable cash game session in Macau at the high stakes, which was highly publicized. And since he’s a very avid user of both Twitter and Facebook, he’s earned the social media user nomination. He is up against some tough competition though in all categories for which he’s been nominated.

Trickett is 25 years old and has been playing poker since 2005 when he suffered a knee injury that ended his semi-pro soccer career.
