Partypoker Signs Sam Trickett as an Ambassador
Partypoker has pulled off a major coup by signing a deal with Sam Trickett, the No. 1 player on the United Kingdom’s all-time money list, and making him a brand ambassador.
Trickett has won more than $20.5 million from live poker tournaments since bursting onto the scene in 2007. The Nottingham based pro won a £110 buy in tournament in May 2007 for £3,610 and it was the catalyst for great things.
In 2008, Trickett finished fourth in a $5,000 no-limit hold’em event at the World Series of Poker for $245,927 and followed up that impressive result with a victory in the £1,060 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Luton Main Event for £109,050 only a couple of months later.
Two years later, Trickett went on a major heater that has shown no signs of slowing down. Since 2010, Trickett has enjoyed results such as:
- Second place in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em Event at the 2010 WSOP for $505,725
- Fourth place in the €5,300 EPT Vilamoura Main Event for €139,681
- First place in the $10,000 partypoker World Open for $200,000
- First place in the A$100,500 High Roller at the 2011 Aussie Millions for A$1,525,000
- Second place in the A$250,000 Super High Roller at the 2011 Aussie Millions for A$1,400,000
- First place in the €8,500 Partouche Poker Tour for €1,000,000
- Seventh place in the HK$258,000 Super High Roller in Macau for HK$7,750,000
- First place in the A$250,000 Challenge at the 2013 Aussie Millions for A$2,000,000
- Second place in the $125,000 partypoker Premier League for $254,000
- Fifth place in the €50,000 Super High Roller at the 2014 EPT Barcelona for €288,400
Trickett is currently in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic where he is competing at the Caribbean Poker Party. As part of his duties as a partypoker ambassador, Trickett will represent partypoker at global events throughout 2017 and will host the soon-to-be launched ‘Trickett’s Cash Games’ online at partypoker.
These cash games will be for high-stakes players, are invite-only and will give partypoker players the chance to win a seat on one of these tables, rubbing shoulders with the United Kingdom’s most successful poker player.
“I am proud to be joining the expanding partypoker team and represent the brand globally," Trickett said in a press release. "partypoker was always my first site and I am excited about the direction the company is taking, with the players and a fun feel at the forefront of their minds. I am going to bring monthly high-stakes games online, which my friends and partypoker players can enjoy. Over the coming weeks I will plan my live events schedule for 2017 and look forward to getting back on the tournament circuit wearing the partypoker patch.”
Group Head of partypoker, Tom Waters, shared Trickett's excitement and said it has shown how far partypoker has come.
“It is testament to the recent success of partypoker that such a renowned player like Sam was eager to join the team," Waters said. "Sam will be a great addition to partypoker, hosting new and exciting high-stakes cash games on the site that I’m sure will make great viewing for the players.”
