Sam has been a member of the Titan Poker Pro Team since 2010. Currently making his home in London, when Sam is away from the poker tables he spends time with girlfriend Tash and indulges in his 2nd passion, association football. Commenting on his other favorite game, he has said, “I love football, still. It’s my biggest love apart from poker, and it breaks my heart that I’ll never get to see how good I could have been. Eventually in a few years, when I feel like I don’t have to play as much, I want to get back into sports. Maybe buy a share of a club or something like that.”
