When it came to WSOP sports cars hitting the news and trending on Twitter, the news that Sam Trickett crashed his £275,000 Ferrari F458 Spider in 2015 definitely took off. Although it may only be worth one win in a poker tournament for him, the loss of his beloved Ferrari F458 Spider must have hurt, having only bought it three years prior to the crash. However, the international poker star who banked more than £20 million after quitting his job as a gas fitter shouldn’t have had much trouble replacing it.
