Sam Trickett just tweeted the following a bit over an hour ago.

Sam Trickett‏ Was having a great day until 6 guys did this to me.Seriously Wtf? Couldn't be more angry... ‪#cowards

The tweet had the following picture attached:

Natasha Sandhu, Trickett's girlfriend, tweeted the following about the attack

It wasn't a mugging or anything just over nothing, sam is fine..gonna spend some quality time together now :)

Trickett followed it up with this tweet:

Sam Trickett ‏@Samtrickett1

Is this what happens if ur successful? literally beat the shit out of me and spat in @NatashaSandhu face all over nothing...

When I first saw Trickett's picture, the first thing I assumed was that he got mugged by some idiots too stupid to realize that he wouldn't have $10 Million in cash with him at the club.

The good thing is that he is OK and some cuts and bruises are all that happened to him.  Getting jumped by six guys seldom turns out well but at least he has Natasha to nurse him back to health.

But to answer his question, sadly there are people out there that are going to do what they can to tear you down because you are successful and for no other reason.

They may not go to the extreme of jumping you and beating the shit out of you like they did to Trickett, but they will do whatever they can tear you down.

While there are many fantastic people in this world, there are still many scummy ones out there that make themselves feel better by trying to hurt you.

Even worse still, our game does tend to attract those types of people.

With all the above said, I do wonder if these guys would have tried the same thing if Sam had some numbers with him when he left.  Someone in his position may have been wise to either have a couple of bodyguards / escorts or even just have an entourage with him for a few days following his win.

Speedy recover to Sam, and I hope his attackers get what's coming to them in the near future.
