Sam Trickett has been named the “Best Cash Player in Poker” in the United Kingdom for 2011.  He follows last year’s award for “Best New Player”.   He received this year’s honor at the British Poker Awards. 

Trickett, a sponsored pro at Titan Poker, only began playing online poker in 2008. 

“If I didn’t play cash games I would have been struggling [last] year. I lost £100,000 in tournaments but my cash games pulled me through. I probably won £10,000 overall. All the best players are good at cash games. There are only a few players in the world who only play tournaments [and still do well]. Phil Hellmuth is one.”

Trickett’s earnings keep increasing dramatically with each passing year.  In 2010 he won just over $1 million.  This year, Trickett has taken in over $3 million.  He has now amassed $4.7 million in his very short live tournament career.
