Seat 5 - Ludovic Geilich, United Kingdom, PokerStars Qualifier - 1,063,000

Ludovic Geilich

Ludovic Geilich, 27, burst on to the UK live poker scene last year after a couple of cashes pre-2009, taking the UKIPT – and EPT – by surprise with his uniquely aggressive style of play. His biggest results came in the Estrellas/UKIPT Main Event last year, where he won €130,000 for taking the event down, and at EPT London where he made the final of the Main Event, bagging £193,340. A chant of “Lu-do” became commonplace at the Connaught Rooms in London last year, as the half-German, half-Scottish player progressed with a rail as enthusiastic as he is.

Day 3 of the UKIPT Isle of Man Main Event saw Geilich climb from second-shortest stack to near-even with the other four chip-millionaires on the final table, and will be a tough contender for a second title tomorrow.
