So blue, are they saying that Hellmuth sent 6 thugs to beat Trickett up? Or do you reckon it was just "fans" of Hellmuth that didn't like seeing him get bested in the tournament? Still just a sad situation. Disrespected him? That is a total gang attitude and mentality. I was riveted on that final table and I only saw everyone getting along and having a very good time.
I wonder if it might have had anything to do with the following?:
Well-known Poker Pro
Robs English Player Sam Trickett
By Renee | June 8, 2012
Sam Trickett, the English professional poker
player, fully approves of Daniel Negreanu
’s suggestion that “shady people” in the poker gaming world must be chucked out. The poker pro recently expressed his frustration by posting a tweet, in which he stated that a well-known poker player had stolen some money from him and that he would expose the player if he fails to repay him.
Trickett has not yet revealed the name of the culprit, but has threatened to expose him completely if the matter is not immediately resolved in his favor. In the meantime, the poker gaming community is doing everything in its power to guess the name of the player who has annoyed Trickett so much.
Yesterday, Trickett tweeted, “I had money stolen from me by a well-known poker pro, that I thought was my friend! If he don’t call me soon, I’m going to expose him 4 what he is.”
Usually, poker players are kind and understanding toward bad debtors as they are in the habit of borrowing and lending from one another. In other words, borrowing and lending funds is part of life in the live poker world, and if anybody is publicly exposed as a bad debtor, it would be very difficult for him/her to conduct his/her daily business.
But poker pro Negreanu had disagreed with this policy. Calling it an “old school philosophy,” he had urged players to change their attitude. He said, “If you have shady people in your community, you should speak up. I don’t like this “don’t snitch” culture.”
Now, the online poker media is closely watching Trickett’s Twitter page, hoping that he will reveal a name. However, Trickett appears to have posted that tweet owing to temporary annoyance. Right now, the poker pro appears more interested in his performance in the World Series of Poker
(WSOP) 2012 and is understandably eager to grab his first WSOP bracelet ever. Poker News says that it tried contacting Trickett to find out if he is willing to reveal more information about the poker pro who robbed him, but could not get any information.
Fans of Sam Trickett might remember that someone had tried hacking into his bank account
last year not once, but twice. He had even posted an angry tweet about it. The mystery had remained unsolved last year, and this year, the poker community hopes that the name of the scammer will be revealed to the public.
