Sam Trickett, the professional poker player who hails from Britain, is looking for a sponsor. He recently registered at Poker Royalty, which helps talented poker players to find sponsors.
Ever since Trickett’s sponsorship deal with Matchbook expired in September 2012, Trickett has been without a sponsor. Matchbook.com does not have any online or land-based poker product, but is very much interested in the lucrative poker betting activity generated by WSOP.
Trickett is the number one poker player in the United Kingdom as far as poker earnings and achievements are concerned. Having first won a cash prize in May 2007, Trickett has earned a total of $17,470,281 playing live poker tournaments and many more millions playing high-stakes cash poker games all over the globe, his favorite place for high stakes poker being Macau.
Born in Retford, Sam Trickett took part in the inaugural edition of the Multi Prize Pool poker tournament, which was held in Dusk Till Dawn Club recently. Multi Prize Pool poker is a recently invented poker tournament format, which gives players the opportunity to win multiple prize pools. Each multi prize pool poker tournament is associated with three different buy-in levels and 3 different prize pools, and the amount of money players can win depends on the amount they have spent buying into the tournament.
On the sidelines of the tournament, Trickett spoke of recently registering at Poker Royalty. He said:
Poker Royalty works with some of the biggest names in poker allowing them to create the best opportunities no other company can provide. I am very excited and honored to be working with them.
Poker Royalty has not yet uploaded Trickett’s profile on its official website. However, when it does so, Trickett will find himself in the company of some of the world’s top professional poker players. The world’s best poker players such as Phil Hellmuth, Antonio Esfandiari, Eugene Katchalov, Daniel Negreanu, Gus Hansen, Tom Dwan, and Patrik Antonius are also looking for sponsors along with Trickett.
Although the International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT) has appointed Trickett as its ambassador, it has not signed any sponsorship deal with Trickett. Currently, the online poker community is busy wondering who will ultimately sponsor Trickett. Several poker players are guessing that Full Tilt Poker, which was re-launched into the European market as a separate brand by its one-time rival and present owner PokerStars late last year, might sign a sponsorship deal with Trickett.
