Winamax Poker has added to its pro team ranks by signing up World Series of Poker Main Event November Niner Sylvain Loosli.
The Frenchamn joins a Team Winamax line up that includes triple crown winner Davidi Kitai and 2012 WSOP Main Event final table bubble girl Gaelle Baumann and has combined career earnings of in excess of $15m. "It was on Winamax that I began to play poker in 2006 and it’s also on Winamax that I learned to play poker," said Loosli. "Joining the Team gives me the best possible chance of becoming world champion. With help from the rest of the team, I will be fully prepared and have the best possible chance at the final table." The former business studies student is something of a novice in the live arena but has online earnings of over €1m. He'll be sharpening his live skills prior to the Main Event with appearances at the forthcoming EPT events in Barcelona and London and the Winamax Open in Dublin. "I am confident. I have two months to fully prepare and to put things into perspective, I just need to remind myself that I only need to beat 8 out of the original 6,352!" Loosli added. He'll return to the Rio on 4 November in sixth place with a stack of 19,600,000 giving him 49 big blinds. Join Loosli at the Winamax tables with a first deposit bonus of up to €500.
