Sam Grafton has joined the Team PokerStars Pro community, and he is excited as PokerStars has always meant a lot to him. ‘The online environment PokerStars have provided is where I’ve made much of my living and it’s at their live events such as the UKIPT and EPT stops that I’ve made some of my greatest friends.’
Sam started his interest in the game thanks to his two younger brothers. He used to join them at a £10 buy-in at a local snooker hall. From there, he developed his skills and was able to join a dedicated poker club in London, before discovering the world of online poker. It was in his hometown of London where he achieved his ‘poker highlight’ which was winning the GUKPT event. This was his first live title and to do it in front of friends and family made it extra special.
Away from the tables, Sam loves literature and is always reading. A passion that led him to be a bookseller before his adventure into becoming a professional poker player.
You can find Sam on the tables under the name SamSquid.
