Apparently the high-stakes profile Sam Trickett was robbed at the 2012 WSOP on Wednesday this week. Now you might think that he was pickpocked by a stranger on the street or something like that, but that is not the case. Sam Trickett twittered the following about the incident.

There are already some people speculating about the identity of the "well-known pro". However, we won't post any of that here as it might drag an innocent man or women's identity through the mud. In other words, we will wait and see if Trickett writes it himself.

According to Scott Montgomery's twitter, he was robbed at Bellagio in Las Vegas the other day. It all occurred in a bathroom during a tournament break. A person corned Montgomery and demand all his money or else he would be shot/stabbed. At first, he refused to give up his money, but when the man started to unwrap something in his hand, Montomery decided to hand over the $2k he had in his pocket.

Montgomery called for the security straight away but it took about 15 minutes before they showed up, and of course, the robber was long gone by that time. Scott Montgomery is very angry and disappointed with how the casino handled his case.

Joe Cada, 22, wrote poker history last year when he became the youngest player ever to win the WSOP Main Event. For the win he received nothing less than $8.5 million, however, he only got to keep half of his winnings because he was staked by some friends. 

According to many interviews with Joe Cada after the win, he has been very careful with the remaining part of the winnings and it also seems like he has tried to live an ordinary life, even though he's rich and famous. Sometimes, however, it doesn't seem enough to keep a very low profile, at least if we should believe what Joe Cada wrote on his Facebook a while ago.
