Businessman, entrepreneur, politician, basketball manager and poker pro. Antonas "Tony G" Gouga has many irons in the fire to say the least. Last week he could cross off another thing on his "bucket list" as he got married to his girlfriend of two years, Aiste Slapokaite.
The British poker pro Sam Trickett, 26, is soon a married man. On Monday, Trickett, who has won millions of dollars live and online, announced via twitter that he proposed to his girlfriend, Natasha Sandhu, on New Year's Eve.
Trickett asked Natasha whilst celebrating with friends at Whisky Mist, one of London's trendiest nightclubs, and she said yes. He and his future wife have received lots of congratulatory messages on twitter since breaking the news.
Sam Trickett won more than 11 million dollars in live tournaments last year. Most probably he won't win that much this year, but what does it matter when you're in love?
According to the BBC, Mitchell, an award winning comedian best known for his role on the TV series Peep Show, placed an ad in the Birth, Marriages and Deaths column of The Times newspaper to announce that he and Vicky Coren, Team PokerStars Pro, TV host and highly regarded writer, are engaged.
