UK-born Sam only narrowly missed out on a promising career in football after a devastating knee injury, but as one door closed another opened – and what a journey he’s been on since. Sam is ranked number 1 in the England all-time money list and is also in the top 10 live tournament earners of all time. He famously finished runner-up to Antonio Esfandiari in 2012’s inaugural Big One for One Drop for more than $10 million. Not too shabby for second place.

Incredibly, that jaw-dropping win accounts for less than half of Sam’s overall live cashes, with his impressive CV of live tournament wins listing over $20 million in cashes (and counting). His achievements were recognised at the UK’s famous Dusk Till Dawn poker club in 2013 with the unveiling of Trickett Room, a special high-stakes area of the Nottingham venue reserved exclusively for high stakes poker players.

In spite of all his success Sam has not once read a poker strategy book, proving that there’s simply no substitute for natural ability.
