It was around 2006 when Sam Trickett started earning minimum wages as a plumber.
He was just a teenager who wanted to pursue his career as a professional football player.
He used to play around the fruit machines.
They went to Retford in Nottinghamshire so as to earn money from pubs.
It was a friend who encouraged him to go down and play a game of cards.
Guess what? Sam is now 33 and married.
Till now, this man has earned around $20 million by playing the card game and has converted to be professional poker player. Isn’t it so impressive?
Sam also stated that he didn’t know a single rule when he went down to play for the very first time.
He just determined to do his best in all cases.
He also realized that as time passed, he improved his skills in the game.
He also found out that others were not that good and got motivated to play even more.
He mentioned about a tournament that he played after a long time.
Surprisingly, the tournament happened to be a defining moment in his life.
His ex-girlfriend helped him by lending him some money.
In return, Sam promised to pay her back as soon as possible.
Fortunately, Sam won the tournament and paid her back the money on the same day.
It was the injury that stopped Sam from becoming a football player.
As a backup, Sam started to learn about gas engineering.
He also spent two years just to learn poker and bring perfection in the game.
During the two years, he was also working while training himself.
At the age of 20, Sam was known to be a professional poker player.
He had to roam around the world to compete and challenge some of the biggest poker tournaments.
He never felt good when he got the second position.
He explained that it never felt like a triumph when he did not win the first position. He felt way bitter about it.
He also told that he was left alone when his girlfriend broke up with him.
He said he did not have money and before he knew he was broke, the girlfriend left.
He had found out his financial situation when his bank card did not work.
He wanted to get trained by trainers but it was impossible at that moment.
Thankfully, he was provided with an opportunity to teach people to play poker.
The job came out as a miracle. It was in Cape Town, South Africa where he was invited so as to help people learn poker.
This was the moment for Sam that changed his life completely.
He started managing his life more wisely and in a better way.
He made sure that each and every bit of his struggle is worth it in the future.
This incident led him to earn so much money and become famous.
