Earlier we told you of the guy who folded on a multi-million pot while holding four-of-a-kind (eights). If that doesn’t sound like something from the movies, this will: the eventual runner-up in that tournament, who won $10.1 million, was beaten up by six assailants as he and his girlfriend left the casino in Las Vegas.
British poker pro Sam Trickett, who came in second in the World Series Of Poker Big One For One Drop on Sunday, was assaulted by six people, the cause of which is shrouded in mystery. No money was taken, apparently.
Trickett, who received $10.1 million for coming so close to victory in poker’s historic event, tweeted, “Was having a great day until 6 guys did this to me.Seriously Wtf? Couldn’t be more angry… #cowards” He also attached the picture to the left, which shows the injuries to his face.
An hour later, he wrote, “Is this what happens if ur successful? literally beat the shit out of me and spat in @NatashaSandhu face all over nothing…”
Anyway, Trickett should take comfort in the fact that he still has $10.1 million, and those six guys are sharing the special at Denny’s.
