Lucia Navarro is a professional poker player who has achieved notable success in both live and online poker tournaments. She was born in Novelda, Alicante, Spain, and started playing poker in 2007-2008.

According to her reports, Lucia Navarro had a keen interest in playing card games since childhood. She would often pester her family members to play all kinds of card games with her. As time passed, Navarro’s interest in card games became more focused on poker, and she began playing professionally in 2013.

Navarro was particularly skilled at online cash games but would occasionally visit her local casino to play more cash games and the occasional tournament. Her first significant win came in the form of a $22,000 payout after winning a CNP Valencia Main Event. In 2015, Navarro moved to London and began frequenting the Victoria Casino, where she kept winning.

Her success continued, and in 2019 she won the CNP Alicante Main Event and took home the grand prize of $35,000. Navarro is the first female player to win two CNP titles.

Navarro also recorded two cash prizes at the 2022 World Series of Poker, earning $2,638 after finishing 66th in the Ladies Championship and $46,800 for finishing in 241st place in the WSOP Main Event.
