Trickett set for NBC Heads Up Championship

Trickett set for NBC Heads Up Championship

Wednesday, 2 March 2011

One of the surprise omissions from the NBC National Heads up Championship line up was Sam Trickett. Considering his exploits in the Macau cash games and his amazing performances in the high roller events at the Aussie Millions he seemed an ideal candidate for this made for TV event.

It now appears that the original oversight has been corrected with Trickett set to replace former WSOP Main Event winner Joe Cada who is unavailable for this month's contest. The Nottinghamshire youngster will join fellow Britons James Bord and Liv Boeree in the hunt for the $750,000 first prize.

Given the way 2011 has started the Bluff Europe money would be on a Trickett versus Erik Seidel final.
