Lacay has been playing EPTs since Season 4 and has already cashed in nine Main Events, including eighth at EPT5 Warsaw for € 32,843 and 21st at the EPT6 Grand Final for €52,000.
Like many other players, the 27-year-old got into online poker after enjoying success in the video game world where he played for one of the best French “Counter Strike” teams. Known as an aggressive poker player, Lacay first came to prominence in 2007 when he was runner-up in the WPT Spanish Championship for €295,200. But his best live cash to date was 16th place in the 2009 WSOP Main Event for $500,557, a result that also put him in the spotlight outside Europe. Although he has yet to win a major title, he is considered one of the best players in France (11th in the All Time Money List) and has already accrued $2 million in live tournament winnings.
