One of the winningest tournament players of all time, helped by his $10m runner-up score at the 2012 Big One for One Drop, Trickett will begin representing Everest Poker as brand ambassador and sponsored pro today at WPT Venice.
“I’m very excited to be joining Everest Poker and I’m looking forward to interacting with our players online and at Everest Poker Live events, where I’ll be playing and coaching" Trickett said in a statement.
“Everest is a great poker brand and I will be doing everything I can to make it one of the most recognised in the world.”
10% of WSOP Earnings Shared with Everest Players
Big One profits unfortunately not included.
Along with video blogs from this summer's WSOP, Trickett is also offering a cut of his profits, excluding the $1m Big One for One Drop.
Everest Poker players can earn a share of 10% of Trickett's haul this summer from a 20-30 tournament schedule.
“It’ll make the Vegas grind a lot easier to know I have a lot of players following my progress this year," Trickett said.
“I’ve promised my mum a bracelet and will be doing my very best to score big for everyone who’ll own a share in me.”
"We want to encourage players to get behind Sam’s quest for a first bracelet this summer," Des Duffy, director for Everest Poker, added.
"With Sam’s consistent record of cashing at high profile tournaments there could be a huge amount of value on the table.”
