Lucille Cailly

Lucille Cailly
Nationality: France


Cailly got her introduction to poker five years ago when her room-mates started playing weekly SNGs in their shared living room. Perhaps indicating a natural-born gambling ability, Lucille quickly found herself booking a last-minute flight to Las Vegas to get over a break-up. Luckily, she didn’t land alone in the poker capital, after meeting French pro Manuel Bevand and a friend at the airport. After this encounter, Cailly dabbled in poker journalism, live-updating EPTs and WPTs while honing her skills online. In 2010, a series of MTT successes persuaded her to jump straight in and become a full time pro. Since then, Cailly mainly plays online, earning the respect of her French peers as a true "grinder" as well as some serious money. Cailly’s best live result was winning a €1k event at the now-defunct Cercle Wagram club in Paris for €26,190. She has also cashed at the Deauville EPTs in 2010 and 2012. A former epistemology student, Lucille lives in La Défense, near Paris.
