WSOP Big One for One Drop runner up Sam Trickett and betting exchange Mathcbook.com have mutually agreed to end their sponsorship agreement.
"We have long believed that Sam is one of the best poker players in the world, and his success over the last two years is well deserved,” said a spokesman for Mathcbook.com. “We have been honoured to have Sam as the face of the Matchbook Poker team in which his results were nothing short of phenomenal. Sam is a huge asset for any brand, and we fully expect him to secure a sponsorship deal with one of the biggest dedicated poker sites around.”The highlight of the partnership was when Trickett took second place in the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop - the biggest prize pool in poker history, wearing the Matchbook badge. In doing so the Nottingham-born pro won over $10 million and became Europe's biggest all-time money winner in the process. "I'm extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to compete in the biggest tournament in this history of poker and it was an experience that will live for me forever." Trickett said.Matchbook.com has also been involved in the production of a documentary on Trickett, centred on his involvement in the One Drop tournament and exploring his rise to becoming one of the the world's best poker players."It's been a lot of fun filming this and I'm looking forward to seeing the outcome myself," said Sam. The documentary will be shown first on national TV in the UK later this year, with an online version released soon after.These days, Sam has started to play more at PokerStars, under the nickname "tricky7". On Wednesday night he had his most successful online session ever, winning $289k playing between $25/$50 and $200/$400 PLO.
