Ludovic Geilich Becomes Official Ambassador of PartyPoker

Scottish poker player Ludovic Geilich has signed on to be an official ambassador of partypoker.

The Scotsman takes his place as an ambassador with partypoker as a Pot Limit Omaha specialist. Not only will he represent partypoker in tournaments, but he also plans to help partypoker develop their PLO product. In the statement released by partypoker, he said he was looking forward to working with partypoker to help move their Pot Limit Omaha forward.

“I am really excited about joining the partypoker team. partypoker are making huge waves in the international poker scene and are constantly striving to look after the player. I am really looking forward to representing such a forward-thinking brand and working with them to increase their current online PLO offering!"

The announcement comes just before partypoker’s LIVE Caribbean Poker Party in November. The statement also seemed to imply that Geilich and other members of Team partypoker would be entering the $10 million guaranteed MILLIONS WORLD High Roller.

Geilich’s Career

Geilich’s career has seen him cash $2,202,529 in live winnings, good for third place on the all-time Scottish money list with over $1,250,000 more than the fourth-place holder. He most recently placed 259th in the main event of the World Series of Poker, winning almost $43,000.

Geilich’s biggest career live cash was back in April, where he bagged a quarter of a million euros with a first-place finish at the partypoker MILLIONS Grand Final €1,100 No-Limit Hold ‘em Open in Barcelona. According to the Global Poker Index, he is ranked 59th in the world, and #3 in the UK.

Online, Geilich has eclipsed $3,000,000 in winnings. His single largest online cash came back in 2016, winning the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker $21,000 PL Omaha $500,000 guaranteed. The win netted him $462,182. He is currently the 54th ranked UK player online according to PocketFives, reaching an all-time high in 2016 at #9.

Team partypoker at the WSOP

Geilich joins an elite team with names like Mike Sexton, Fedor Holz, and Jason Koon. Koon bagged Team partypoker’s two highest cashes outside of The Big One for One Drop, finishing 5th and 7th in the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha-High Roller ($295,606) and $100,000 No Limit Hold ‘em-High Roller ($372,894). He also bagged an additional $115,102 at the $50,000 No Limit Hold ‘em-High Roller.

Fedor Holz made headlines as well, finishing second in The Big One for One Drop to Justin Bonomo (who became the all-time winningest poker player with the win). Holz himself bagged $6 million, as well as playing the hand of the game, eliminating Byron Kaverman and Rick Salomon with a single hand.

Canadian partypoker representative Kristen Bicknell led Team partypoker with number of cashes at the World Series of Poker. By herself, she accounted for seven separate cashes:

  • Event #7: $565 No Limit Hold ‘em-Colossus (631st, $1,998)
