Three $1,000,000+ Cashes for Trickett in 2011Published on November 14th, 2011 12:26 pm EST
In 2011, the poker world has been intensely focused on the ridiculous runs of Erik Seidel and Ben Lamb. Both players have been on fire this year, and both players deserve all of the attention that they have been getting.
Another player has been quietly putting together a year for the ages in 2011, and that player is Sam Trickett.
This past weekend, Sam Trickett overcame a 2-1 chip deficit during heads-up play to take down the Partouche Poker Tour main event. The win was worth 1 million Euros to Trickett, which works out to about $1.36 million USD.
Amazingly enough, this is Trickett's third $1,000,000+ score of the year. Trickett got his year off to a great start by taking down the $100k event at the Aussie Millions for $1,508,258, and then followed this up with a second place finish in the Aussie Millions $250k Super High Roller for $1,384,631.
As if those three scores weren't enough, Trickett also managed to rake in two additional six-figure scores - 7th place in the 20k Pound High Roller event at the EPT/UK + Ireland Poker Tour event for $107,534, and a 4th place finish in the 5k EUR PLO event at the 2011 World Series of Poker Europe for $103,719.
All told, Trickett managed to cash for approximately $4.7 million USD in 2011, making him one of the biggest winners of the year.
Thanks to his phenomenal 2011, Trickett is now at the top of the England All Time Money List, having passed both Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott and Roland de Wolfe.
