We’ve already testified big turnarounds at huge games between very well-known pros, but this time Sam Trickett didn’t give a chance to Tobias Reinkemeier to dream with the first place. And with a 5-1 difference when starting the final HU, I bet Reinkemeier didn’t even tried to make a deal.

Good day everyone Smile
Well thats a nice cash for sam trickett !! he is very good tournament player and he has proved his mettle in this event again ...i think the entries to this event is very less i mean i thought it could bring out big pros and rich flounders but it was measly 18 people ... whatever that itself created a good prizepool ... congrats to him Smile

Good luck at the tables Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

It looks like it is going to be another seven-figure year for Sam Trickett, as he has just had his third cash worth over a million dollars at the Aussie Millions, and his 5th overall.
