Queen of Spanish poker Leo Margets has now signed a sponsorship deal to become the latest member of the LockPRO ELITE team.
Located on the Merge Poker Network, Lock Poker has continued to expand its operation since the U.S. online poker shutdown, and the addition of Leo Margets to its stable of pros will help further enhance the name of the up and coming poker room.
The Spanish pro now adds her name to those members of the LockPRO ELITE team, which already includes such players as Chris “Moorman1” Moorman, Eric Lynch, Casey Jarzabek, Michael Drummond, Matt Stout and Bryan Pellegrino. Commenting on their latest signing, CEO of Lock Poker Jennifer Larson said:
“Leo is a dream come true for Lock! She is brilliant, driven, incredibly talented and represents the brand perfectly. Having Leo join the team is just another step towards truly becoming the best online poker brand in the world.”

Leo Margets career highlights so far include being the last woman standing at her first entry into the $10k WSOP Main Event in 2008, where she finished in 27th place for a $352,000 payout.
The 28 year-olds other achievements include winning the 2010 Full Tilt Masters event for $132,237 and finishing 3rd at a 2010 Aussie Millions side event for $54,270.
