The news of Trickett leaving Team Titan came via a Twitter message by Trickett. Titan Poker is yet to declare this latest development officially. This is the second pro player who has announced leaving the company. The first one was Marvin Rettenmaier who had departed with the company over the weekend.

It is assumed that the decision to quit was purely on business grounds and they have departed their ways on good terms.
