UK 3-Bet: Trickett Proposal, Romanello Near Miss, Trigg Rise

Sam Trickett
Year starts well for Trickett.

The weekly PokerListings UK 3-Bet is a three-set whitewash on centre court while your next-round opponent goes five sets on the outer surfaces with an anonymous Albanian qualifier.

Any suggestions for a future 3-Bet, feel free to drop a note in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find golden boy Sam Trickett giving fans even more reason to be envious, Roberto Romanello alsmot winning his own tournament and Rick "The Claimeer" Trigg having a Sunday session to be proud of.

1) Sam Trickett Proposes to Girlfriend Natasha Sandhu

One man who was missing from the PCA High Roller events but who will definitely be making an appearance at the Aussie Millions is the golden boy of UK poker, Sam Trickett.

These days, when kids are asked what they want to be when they grow up they say, “Sam Trickett”.

The ISPT Ambassador only cashed three times in 2012 and yet still managed to finish second on the 2012 Money List and overtake Devilfish #1 n the GB & Ireland All Time Money List.

Just when it seems that Trickett’s life can’t get any better, 2013 starts with a bang.

He joined forces with Poker Royalty and immediately after had his wedding proposal accepted by the stunning Natasha Sandhu.

2) Romanello Nearly Wins His Own Tournament

Romanello: Almost claims own tourney.
 

The UK number one ranked live tournament player on the GPI, Roberto Romanello, very nearly won his very own tournament after his creation, Multi Prize Pool (MPP) poker, was revealed to the world at the Dusk till Dawn (DTD) Poker & Casino in Nottingham.

The inaugural MPP event attracted a field of 177 entrants that included the likes of Sam Trickett, Ben Vinson, Simon Deadman and Romanello himself.

Of the 177 entrants, 64 were eligible for the £100 prizepool, 111 for the £50 prizepool and all 177 for the £25 prizepool; the total prizepool of £10,400 smashed the £5,000 guarantee.

Incredibly, Romanello nearly went and won the thing after finishing runner-up to Brian Sheppard. Sheppard bought for £100 so took down all three prizepools for £3,040.31.

3) Rick Trigg Rises to Top of UK Rankings

Rick “TheClaimeer” Trigg has risen to the top of the UK & Ireland online poker rankings for the first time after a Sunday session he should be rather proud of.

The self-confessed punter won the Sunday Brawl, the $109 1R1A on Stars and the $60k guaranteed rebuy on Full Tilt.

To top it off he had a fifth-place finish in the $215 Second Chance and a sixth-place finish in the Sunday 500 for a rather splendid showing.

The online crusher from Sheffield now has well over $3 million in online profits and is sixth overall in the world online rankings.

Live Trigg has "just" $360k in live tournament cashes including four WSOP cashes and a $91k win this past summer in Vegas in a $1k Deep Stack event.

In between bashing up people in the virtual world, Trigg has also been trying desperately to sweep all before him in Snooker, Darts, Horse Racing, Soccer, Ludo and Tiddlywinks.
