Cailly finished in second place in the 2012 EPT Monte Carlo Grand Final to pick up the seven-figure payday, having lost out on the title to Mohsin Charania.

Cailly's Poker Journey
Cailly got her introduction to poker in the late noughties after her roommates started playing weekly Sit-and-Go tournaments in their shared living room. Perhaps indicating a natural-born gambling ability, Lucille quickly found herself booking a last-minute flight to Las Vegas to get over a breakup. Luckily, she didnt land alone in the poker capital, after meeting French professional poker player Manuel Bevand and a friend at the airport.
After this encounter, Cailly dabbled in poker journalism, live-updating EPTs and WPTs while honing her skills online. In 2010, a series of MTT successes persuaded her to jump straight in and become a full-time pro.
Cailly mainly plied her trade online, earning the respect of her French peers as a true "grinder" as well as some serious money.
