Grosvenor Poker has signed Ludovic Geilich as the newest member of Team Grosvenor. The Scottish poker pro secured the sponsorship deal ahead of the start of the first-ever UK Poker League (UKPL) which kicks off on January 16.
Geilich’s Love Affair with Grosvenor
Ranked 3rd on Scotland’s All-Time Money List, Geilich is an accomplished poker pro with over $3.6 million in total live earnings, some of which he won in multiple Grosvenor events over the last 17 years.
Grosvenor Poker is a key part of Geilich’s poker journey. Not only did he win his first-ever recorded live cash at the 2007 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) London, but he also made a name for himself in the live poker scene with his deep runs in various Grosvenor-sponsored events, including a victory in the £1,000 GUKPT Edinburgh Main Event in 2023 for £79,590.
He scored five more cashes at the tour last year, including a 4th-place finish in the £1,250 No Limit Hold’em – Midi Main Event which ran as part of GUKPT Grand Final London.
