This week on the show Sam Trickett joins Remko to talk about the massive ups and downs of his poker career.

Trickett gained worldwide fame when he finished runner-up in the 2012 Big One for One Drop for $10,000,000, and for the first time he tells the entire story of how this changed his life, and how the deal he had in place to play the tournament changed just days before it started.

After a few years away from the game, Trickett is now back in action and eager to crush the high stakes once again.
