Spanish pro Leo Margets has announced on Twitter that she is parting ways with PokerStars to pursue other projects and new adventures:
Nuevo año, nuevas aventuras! Se acabó una etapa con Stars y empieza otra con proyectos muy apetecibles. Ganas de exprimir el 2016!
— Leo Margets (@LeoMargets) January 2, 2016
Margets has been a member of Team PokerStars Pro since the spring of 2013. In February 2015 Vanessa Rousso left PokerStars, and with Margets’ departure just four of the 23 members of Team Pro are women: Vanessa Selbst, Liv Boeree, Celina Lin and Vivian Im.
At the turn of the year, Alex “Kanu7” Millar and Ike Haxton both resigned from the world’s largest poker site in protest of the recent changes to the Supernova and Supernova Elite programs. It’s not clear if Marget’s depature has anything to do with the changes to the VIP program.
Margets has $835,747 in live tournaments earnings according to the Hendon Mob. Her biggest result is a 27th place finish (last woman standing) in the 2009 WSOP Main Event for $352,832; the year Joe Cada won. In 2010 she won the Full Tilt Masters Series for $132,237, and two years later she took down the Women’s Event at EPT Grand Final in Monaco for around $20k.
Margets has appeared on the TV poker show the Shark Cage season 2 (episode 7 & 8), and participated in the Spanish version of Survivor. She’s an avid marathon runner and has a passion for writing. Maybe Margets will debut as an author in 2016? Regardless, PokerWomenNews wish Margets the best of luck in her future endeavors.
