For many who aspire to “make it” in poker, finding a sponsorship is perhaps one of the ultimate signs that you’ve done something right in the game.
French poker player Ludovic Lacay not only did something right but the 2012 EPT Sanremo Champion spent 8 years as a part of Team Winamax. According to PokerNews, it seems that Lacay has had enough and announced that he’s leaving his sponsor in order to “turn the page and do something else.”
With over $3.2 million in lifetime earnings Lacay’s career highlight was indeed his $961K victory on the EPT but Ludovic notched a number of other high profile finishes in his career including his 2nd place WPT finish in 2007 and coming 16th in the WSOP Main Event in 2009.
So what’s next for the 29-year old Lacay?
“I have an opportunity that I can’t miss. It’s as scary and exciting as poker was at the very beginning – and that’s what I want to do.”
