An appearance on the Bluff Europe cover usually guarantees a small sprinkling of good karma and Sam Trickett is the latest beneficiary.
This month's cover star triumphed in the Aussie Millions $100,000 Challenge pocketing $1,525,000 (around £942,000) after beating a top class 38-runner field. Trickett outlasted a stacked final table that included David Benyamine, James Obst, David Steicke and Erik Seidel before beating fellow Briton Tony Bloom heads up.Trickett went into two-handed play holding the chip lead and extended it still further after hitting runner runner straights on back to back hands. The end came soon after with Bloom taking a stand with Qd9d. Unfortunately for the Brighton and Hove Albion chairman Trickett was holding AhKd. The board helped neither player leaving Bloom to settle for AU$925,000 (around £527k, enough to strengthen Gus Poyet's promotion chasing squad!).The final table payouts were as follows:1 Sam Trickett 1,525,000 2 Tony Bloom 975,000 3 Erik Seidel 625,000 4 David Steicke 325,000 5 James Obst 200,000 6 David Benyamine 150,000This big tournament win comes hot on the heels of massive cash game success in Macau where Trickett took home a seven figure score.Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
