Everest Poker made a splash today by announcing the signing of UK poker pro Sam Trickett to be their new brand ambassador. Easily considered one of biggest unsigned names in poker, Trickett boasts a resume that includes two Aussie Million High Roller titles, a Partouche Poker Tour title and, of course, nearly $20 million in career earning thanks to his 2nd place finish in the inaugural World Series of Poker Big One for One Drop in 2012.
Now, the big time Brit is headed to Team Everest Poker and they have a big time promotion to go along with that. Trickett and Everest are giving away the chance to win 10% of Trickett’s 2014 WSOP campaign (minus the 2014 One Drop) which, according to Des Duffy in the Everest Poker marketing department, is expected to be between 20-30 events.
“I’m very excited to be joining Everest Poker and I’m looking forward to interacting with our players online and at Everest Poker Live events, where I’ll be playing and coaching. Everest is a great poker brand and I will be doing everything I can to make it one of the most recognized in the world.” Trickett said in the press release. “It’ll make the Vegas grind a lot easier to know I have a lot of players following my progress this year. I’ve promised my mum a bracelet and will be doing my very best to score big for everyone who’ll own a share in me.”
