November Niner Sylvain Loosli Joins Winamax

November Niner Sylvain Loosli Joins WinamaxWith just a couple of months left before the 2013 WSOP Main Event final table gets underway, it has now been announced that Frenchman Sylvain Loosli has been signed to top French site Winamax.
Although poker in France has declined recently due to high taxes levied by the state, Winamax remains the most popular site in the country and a win by Sylvain Loosli will surely help give the industry a much-needed boost, much like Jonathan Duhamel’s victory at the 2010 WSOP Main Event helped set off a poker boom in Canada.
The 26 year old Frenchman from Toulon is an online poker cash game specialist with over €1m in online earnings and when the Main Event resumes come November will be aiming to become his country’s first ever WSOP ME winner. Loosli may be starting in 6th place overall, but his 19.6 million (49bb) stack will give him plenty of ammo to give it his best shot. In addition, joining Team Winamax has other added benefits, and as Sylvain Loosli explains:
“It was on Winamax that I began to play poker in 2006 and it’s also on Winamax that I learned to play poker. Joining the Team gives me the best possible chance of becoming world champion. With help from the rest of the team, I will be fully prepared and have the best possible chance at the final table.”
The other members of Team Winamax which Loosli will be joining includes French rapper turned poker pro Bruno “Kool Shen” Lopes, Gaëlle Baumann who finished 10th at last year’s WSOP Main Event, Triple Crown winner Davidi Kitai, and Ludovic Lacay.
For their part, Winamax has high hopes for its latest addition, with CEO Canel Frichet commenting: “When we see his results online at the Winamax tables, we realise that reaching the final table of the world championships is not down to chance. We will all be completely behind him this November in Las Vegas.”
