Ludovic Lacay Quits Winamax

Wednesday, 28 January 2015

Grabbing an increasingly elusive pro sponsorship deals is one of the cherries on the cake of a poker career. One player is calling it quits though after nine years sporting a patch.

Frenchman Ludovic Lacay has departed the pro team at Winamax Poker, confirming the news via a blog post earlier this week.

“For several months now I’ve been losing my motivation and I wasn’t sure what the best decision to take would be,” Lacay wrote. “I’ve played poker for nine years, travelling from one tournament to the next and country to country for eight of those. It’s time for me to turn the page and move onto other things.”

Lacay is best known for winning the EPT Sanremo Main Event in 2012. He also went close to WSOP glory in 2013 but eventually busted in second place in the PLO Mixed Max event. The 29-year-old also shared his knowledge to Bluff Europe readers in a series of strategy columns.

So what's next on the horizon for Lacay? He's not revealed exactly what he has in store but wrote, “I know how to spot an opportunity I can’t pass up. It’s scary and exciting, just like poker at first, and that’s what I want to do.”

We wish him well.
