Posted by Bradley, August 4, 2011

Sam Trickett carTeam Titan’s Sam Trickett is currently at home in England and as you can see in the photograph, he’s enjoying his new car. But after a short period of relaxation, Sam will be heading back to Vegas to participate in the launch of an exciting new tournament series.

Sam is one of the international poker players invited to participate in the Epic Poker League’s Season One tournaments. The first events will be taking place at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas starting tomorrow, with the Main Event kicking off on August 9.

Sam is currently ranked in 28th place on the Global Poker Index, a patent pending system that ranks the top 300 live tournament players in the world.

Sam is up for three British Poker Awards and the voting has already begun. He has been nominated in three categories, including Best Cash Player, Best Tournament Player, and Best Social Media User. The award winners will be announced on September 3rd in London. Last year, in the inaugural British Poker Awards, Sam was the winner of the New Player Award.

In an interview published yesterday with eGaming Review, Sam said he thinks that player participation in the Epic Poker League will result in sponsorships being offered by non-poker companies.

“I think it’s only a matter of time before non poker-related businesses get involved in poker, whether its energy drinks or sunglasses who start investing in sponsorships,” Sam said. “Considering how big poker’s got, with thousands of people still playing online, it’s beginning to look like a good way for people to advertise.”

At the end of August, Sam is set to play in the European Poker Tour event in Barcelona.
