Leonor “Leo” Margets, a native of Spain, straight out of Barcelona, has won this years title of the last women standing in the WSOP Main Event, she beat over 99% of the field and finished in 27th place earning her $352,832 in the process, her biggest win to date.

She’s only been playing poker for 3 years and this was her first Major tournament (10k or more).

She now joins the ranks of Tiffany Michelle, Susie Isaacs, Barbara Enright, Marsha Waggoner, Annie Duke.

Originally coming to Las Vegas just to play preliminary events, Margets went home and was then able to convince her sponsor 888.com to bring her back to Vegas to play the Main Event. A decision that 888 would not go on to regret.

The Media spin has been huge for her since her incredible effort and 888.com has reaped the rewards.

A bubbly personality with the looks to boot. Let’s hope we see more of Leo Margets again in the future.
