That battered face above belongs to 26-year old professional poker player Sam Trickett, who claims on his Twitter account to be the most winning poker player in the history of Great Britain and Ireland. While that certainly seems to be a pretty bold statement, it helps that just three days ago he pocketed $10,112,001 for finishing second in the Big One for One Drop at the World Series of Poker. I assume that it must be pretty awesome to win $10 million by playing cards.
However, I also assume it is not awesome to get beat up by six men at one time. That’s the story that Trickett Tweeted just hours after he’d gone out to make his “organs hurt” in celebration.
According to Poker News Daily, this was apparently a random attack, as the men may have been disrespecting Trickett’s girlfriend, Natasha Sandhu. What kind of disrespecting might they have been doing? Well, I think they might have been hitting on her, because she’s kind of slightly attractive…
But PND also points out that there’s always a possibility that random attacks like these aren’t always random. One Twitter dickhead, though, believes that he knows the reason why Trickett was attacked – because “kharma”
and Greg punished him for making fun of Phil Hellmuth.
Haha, it’s funny because a guy could have been killed for simply defending his girlfriend! It’s worth noting that this dude claims to be a former marine who now backs players in high stake tournaments. Mostly, he’s just a poster boy for why Twitter is a horrible place.
(Side note: I left something open to be made fun of. See if you can guess what it is.)
