Speaking to Jaime, Trickett explained how playing poker is different from playing football. This is what he said:
«There is a difference between football and poker. It’s quite difficult. When you are in a team, you want to do everything for everyone (all team). When you are at a poker table, you’re trying to get the other guys’ money, and it’s a bit weird».
Sam also shared information on how he had behaved at the poker table at the beginning of his career:
«When I was climbing the poker ladder, I was obsessed with trying to get to the top of the game. I wanted to be the best in the world, that’s why I was constantly battling with all the pros».
