Trickett signs on with ISPT

Sam Trickett is the latest big name to sign on with the International Stadiums Poker Tour which will be hosting a potentially huge outdoor event at Wembley next year.

The WSOP $1m One Drop runner up tweeted “I just want to announce that I will be an @ispt_poker official ambassador. Will be one of the Biggest tournaments ever held May 31, 2013”. The high stakes pro also said, “As a poker player, I have to be associated with such an enormous event. Being part of this tournament means being part of the history of poker.”

Trickett joins Michael Mizrachi in an ambassadorial role for the Wembley showpiece after the Grinder signed on with ISPT last month.

Next May's event received the green light last week after local authority Brent Council awarded Wembley a Temporary Use Notice allowing it to be used for poker. Organisers of the tournament also confirmed details of a new partnership agreement with the Amateur Poker Association and Tour.

The massive Wembley event is scheduled to take place from 31 May 2013 when organisers hope up to 30,000 players will compete using their own laptops. The final 3,000 will then take to the Wembley turf to battle it out for a prize pool estimated to reach €20m.

The initial buy-in is €600 but organisers are also offering a €1,200 option with a rebuy or add on and a €6,000 option for players wanting to buy directly into the live element of the contest.
