Renowned British poker professional Sam Trickett is going after more silverware at the upcoming British Poker Awards.
Sam Trickett was the talk of the poker nation at 2012 British Poker Awards, scooping not one, but three prestigious trophies including the most coveted Player of the Year award. It looks like the poker pro from Retford is back for more this year when the 2013 awards will be given out at one of the most beautiful British poker rooms at London’s Hippodrome Casino.
Trickett is everyone’s favorite to receive yet another prestigious piece of silverware – the Live Tournament Player of the Year, at the 2013 British Poker Awards scheduled to take place on March 3rd, 2014, and is certainly the event every poker player competing under British gambling laws, is dreaming to be invited to.
Why Sam Trickett is favored and what about the others?
The 27-year-old poker pro started the 2013 year on a high note taking the $250,000 event at the Aussie Millions, and went on to close out the year with almost $2.5 million in live tournament profits. This achievement has kept him top of the British list of all-time poker money winners.
Other big names in contention for the 2013 Awards are Matt Perrins and Matt Ashton, both sharing a 2013 WSOP bracelet wins on top of first names. Perrins cashed almost $800,000 winning the $5K NLHE event, while Ashton took home over $1.75 million and the bracelet for Poker Player’s Championship.
Stephen Chidwich, David Vamplew, and Toby Lewis are also there at the top of contenders’ list. Each of them boasts a six-figure earning report for 2013.
