He began playing poker in 2005 following a knee injury that ended his career as a semi-professional soccer player. Sam quickly established himself as a regular participant in poker events in Sheffield and also started playing online in $10 Sit ‘n’ Go’s. In 2008, he achieved a notable fourth-place finish in the $5,000 No-Limit event, earning $245,000, at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas.

Furthermore, he emerged victorious in the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) Luton Main Event in 2008, securing $210,000 in prize money. Sam Trickett is widely recognized as one of the top high stakes cash game players from the United Kingdom. Since March 2010, he has been sponsored by Titan Poker.

In late 2010, Trickett, along with esteemed players like Tom Dwan, John Juanda, and Phil Ivey, participated in a series of high stakes cash games in Macau, featuring wealthy Chinese businessmen. In an interview with Bluff Europe magazine in January 2011, Trickett, who is currently learning Mandarin, disclosed that he won approximately £1 million during these games.

At the start of 2011, Trickett achieved outstanding success in super high buy-in small field no-limit hold’em tournaments, cashing for over $3 million in less than a month.
