Sam Trickett Wins Aussie Millions $100k
It’s the biggest buy-in tournament anywhere in the world and this year the UK’s Sam Trickett took the honours. Having seized the chip lead early on Day 1 by knocking out the first player, Trickett never looked back, crushing all in his path. The stacked field offered the young pro one of his toughest tests but he came through with flying colours.
Indeed, once the final table reached the last two players the title was guaranteed to be heading to England as Tony Bloom was to be Sam’s opponent. After battling back-and-forth it was Sam who eventually capitalised on a good run of cards to put a stranglehold on the match. With the bit between his teeth it wasn’t long before Trickett forced Bloom all in with Qd 9d.
Trickett made the quick call with Ah Kd and paced anxiously as the dealer laid out the flop, turn and river. With no queen or 9 forthcoming, the rail erupted as Trickett’s supporters rushed to the stage to congratulate him on the biggest win of his career.
