Trickett Looking For A Personal Trainer

Posted on 15 April 2013 by "T".

Sam Trickett, 26, was a very promising football player as young and had a bright future envisaged, but a knee injury crushed his dreams of becoming a football pro and instead he started playing poker in 2005. Today he's considered one of the best poker players in the world and he has almost $20,000,000 in live tournament winnings. Besides poker, he's still trying to stay in shape - not on the football pitch but by frequently visiting the gym.

However, it seems like he's not fully satisfied with the results, because last week he tweeted that he was looking for a personal trainer to travel with him to Macau, Monte Carlo and Las Vegas for the next 2-3 months. If you got what it takes, you can send him a message on twitter. Good luck!

On Friday, the world's largest poker site announced that Brazilian football legend Ronaldo Nazario had joined Rafael Nadal, Fatima Moreira (one of Holland's best known field hockey players), Marcus Hellner (cross-country skier from Sweden) and Boris Becker on its Team PokerStars SportStar. Ronaldo retired after a long and successful football career in 2011 at the age of 34. He will play under the alias "Ronaldo" on PokerStars, but he will also play live tournaments in Brazil. It will be interesting to see if he's as good at poker as football!

"Whenever I try to deliver my best in everything, in football and in life. Poker is another challenge that excites me: read the game and opponents and choose the best way to win. For some time I have been discovering the game of poker and PokerStars chosen because they meet a community passionate about the sport. Moreover, it has a great team of players," said Ronaldo in a statement.

PartyPoker has just announced that they have signed the football player Francesco Totti. The fact that Totti is a living legend and one of Italy's most successful strikers ever, will for sure help PartyPoker get many, many new Italian football lovers to sign up and play poker at their site. Lets hope that Totti will play at least in a few major poker tournaments this year, so we get to know if he's as good at poker as he's at football.

"I have faced many challenges in my career and I always apply myself with skill, intelligence, loyalty and passion. You need all these abilities for poker and it is also a game that excites me and is a lot of fun. Thanks to PartyPoker, I am able to combine my passion for sport and the challenge of poker." said Totti

"He is one of the greatest football players of his generation - the question is now will he be one of the greatest poker players of his generation too? What Totti strives for he normally succeeds in achieving! He is a huge signing." said PartyPoker spokesman
