Lock is ecstatic to announce the new addition to their LockPRO ELITE team. Leo Margets is a perfect fit for Lock Poker. Determined and passionate about the game and last but not least an excellent poker player. 

Leo Margets started playing poker in 2008 and it would not take long before her young poker career would reach astounding heights. In her first trip to the World Series of Poker, Leo would make an extraordinary run in the $10,000 World Championship No-Limit Hold’em Main Event, where she would eventually finish in 27th place. Along with $352,000 in cash, Margets received the coveted “Last Woman Standing Cup” for being the last female left in the Main Event field; an accomplishment that few women can claim on their poker resume.

Leo’s continued success has proven that she is no one-hit-wonder at the poker table. She captured a 3rd place finish in the Aussie Millions No Limit Hold’em Six-Handed event in 2010, adding another $54k to her bankroll, and would finish 2010 with a huge 1st place victory in the Full Tilt Masters Series No Limit Hold’em event, taking home $132K. All totaled, Leo has already amassed over $640,000 in tournament winnings, and has already made her way to 26th on the Women’s all-time money list.

Ranking 6th on Spain’s all-time money list for live poker events, Margets influence in the game defies gender classifications however she is regarded as one of the leading ladies in poker certainly in Europe and is respected across the poker globe.
