Lauren Tapie and Proper Mesquelier's International Stadium Poker Tour's inaugural online and live tournament next year has received another credibility boost with the appointment of UK poker ace Sam Trickett (26) as ambassador for the event.
 
Trickett joins Mike Mizrachi in promoting the massive 30,000 player epic, scheduled for Wembley Stadium near London.
 
A professional footballer until injury turned his interests elsewhere, Trickett is an accomplished and respected online and live tournament poker professional with a string of major tournament wins to his credit, starting in 2008 with the main event of Grosvenor UK Poker Tour.
 
He has at least four World Series of Poker final tables to his credit, won the Partouche Poker Tour in 2011, and in 2012, finished second during the Big One for One Drop competition, winning $10,112,001.
 
Commenting on his appointment, Trickett said: “As a poker player, I have to be associated with such an enormous event. Being part of this tournament means being part of the history of poker.“
