However, destiny had some other plans for him. After his graduation, he worked as a CORGI registered gas engineer.  But his dream of pursuing a career as a soccer player kept ruling his mind and soul.  In 2005, Sam met with an accidental knee injury. This unfortunate incident put an end to his childhood dream.

Soon after this, Sam started playing poker. He started as a novice player in local casinos and soon became a regular player of poker events at Sheffield. In 2003, he started his career as a poker professional and started playing high stake poker games.

His favorite poker game is No Limit Texas hold’em game. Besides poker and football, the poker pro also likes to play 8-ball pool. His ambition is to get more and more sponsorship so that he can play for higher stake.
