Just hours after placing second in the 2012 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Big One for One Drop, U.K. poker pro Sam Trickett (pictured) was riding high, loving life after winning over $10 million. He Tweeted, “Thank you everyone 4 ur support, ur all legends! Time to go drink until my organs hurt."

As it unfortunately turned out, Trickett was playing the role of fortune teller that night.

When the revelry was over, Trickett was leaving a club with his longtime girlfriend, Natasha Sandhu, when six men allegedly attacked him. He seems to be no worse for wear, but sustained a number of scrapes and bruises on his face, evidenced by the picture he posted on his Twitter account that you can see at the top of this article.

Along with the picture was the message, “Was having a great day until 6 guys did this to me. Seriously. Wtf? Couldn't be more angry... #cowards.”

It does not appear that the attack had anything to do with the immense sum of money he won just a little while earlier. As he posted a short time after broadcasting the photograph, “Is this what happens if ur successful? Literally beat the **** out of me and spat in @NatashaSandhu face all over nothing.”

It is not clear what this “nothing” was, as neither Trickett nor Sandhu has divulged any details about the incident, nor can any police reports be found at this time. Sandhu Tweeted a similar message as her boyfriend: “It wasn't a mugging or anything just over nothing, Sam is fine.”

Of course, the poker community rumor mill has been churning and there has been plenty of speculation as to what the “nothing” was all about. We won’t get into the various rumors, but the most reasonable theory was that it was simply the end result of some sort of alcohol-lubricated dispute.

Feldman was going to get a $10k Mafia hit, but it turned into a $500 beating because he couldn't find anyone to lend him the money. Laugh
