Sam Trickett vs. Andrew Feldman controversy
Well known high-stakes poker professional, Sam Trickett posted a message on Twitter saying “I had money stolen from me by a well known poker pro,that i thought was my friend! If he dont call me soon,I going to expose him 4 what he is.”. It has since been revealed that the person he was speaking about was Andrew Feldman.
The Twitter war between them both was quite vicious with Feldman fighting back saying “Fed up of constantly being linked to the #samtrickettscandal. Its been almost a month since he said he would out the thief,”.
The dagger from Trickett was a Tweet which read “not going 2 go in 2 detail but please nobody trust @Andrewfeldman1, the guy is a very deluded untrustworthy person.ifound out the hard way,”.
Feldman has since deleted his Twitter account.
The feud seemed to be over €25,000 which Feldman borrowed from Trickett. It is believed that Feldman ‘getting out of poker’ was used as the excuse not to repay the debt.
To add some humor to the situation Feldman appeared on the TV show ‘The Secret Millionaire’ where ‘millionaires’ take part in a swap which sees them participate in charity work. They are then revealed to be very wealthy.
