Platinum Madness

Lucas Robert Raoul Pignay is a 28-year-old poker player from Berre l’étang, France who won his Platinum Pass in February via the Platinum Madness promotion.

He first learned the game when playing with friends as a teenager. Since then he’s learned enough to make poker his living, having been a full-time player the last couple of years.

His biggest win to date was for €16,000 in a Spin & Go-type game.

When it comes to big achievements, Pignay lists having become confident enough to make a living playing poker as a big one. He also says he has a lot of respect for all the online players who have been able to grind their way up in stakes to be successful.

We’ll see if Pignay can find some success himself in Barcelona when he sits down at the 2020 PokerStars Players Championship.
