Adrienne "talonchick" Rowsome Wins 2016 PCA PLO Event

The 2016 Caribbean Adventure is now over, with a total of 104 events having been played over its nine-day schedule. Amongst this year’s winners were such pros as Bryn Kenney, Mike Watson, and Steve O’Dwyer. Team PokerStars Pro Adrienne ‘talonchick’ Rowsome also came away from the Bahamas having tasted success, whilst racking up the biggest score of her live career.
The $2,200 Pot Limit Omaha (Hi/Lo 8-Handed Turbo) event attracted 34 players to create a prize pool worth $65,960, and by the end of the day Adrienne Rowsome managed to overcome her final opponent heads-up to claim the victory, and pocket the competition’s top prize of $22,420. Rowsome now boasts $65,640 in live tournament earnings, which is not bad going considering she is predominantly an online pro, with a particular penchant for traveling to the PokerStars PCA at the start of each year to represent her sponsored site. In fact, out of her nine tournament cashes since 2011, five have been at the PCA, including three victories, for a total payout of $46,395.
Adrienne Rowsome has also racked up a further $278,022 online playing under the screen name “talonchick”, with her success eventually catching the eye of PokerStars which then offered the Canadian player a lucrative sponsorship deal. Nevertheless, poker still representsjust a hobby for Rowsome, who also spends her days working as a part time Occupational Therapist. Poker does, however, allow her the luxury of spending some of her winnings on high end shopping, with some of her past purchases including a BMW, jewelry, and designer handbags. Commenting on her lifestyle, Adrienne Rowsome explained:
“I think more people should work a real job and play poker. It definitely keeps the fun in the game and it definitely lets you make some extra money. It lets you spend without worrying. Your poker winnings don’t have to be towards your mortgage or towards your bills, your poker winning can be used for the frivolous things.”
