In 2014, she won her first significant tournament, collecting a $22K score for first place at a CNP888 Valencia Main Event. It was her first taste of what it would be like to be a successful professional poker player.In 2015, Lucia moved to London to take advantage of the juicy live cash games at the Victoria Casino. After playing a few live tournaments, she won one – taking home $9K after a three-way deal. After that, the wins kept on coming, starting with a repeat Main Event title at CNP888 Alicante in 2019 for $35K. And in 2022, Lucia cashed the WSOP Main Event in Las Vegas, finishing 241st for $47,000. Currently, she is the only woman on the Spanish national poker circuit to hold two prominent titles.
