Vanessa Rousso Captures 2010 PCA Ladies Events

Vanessa Rousso (27) has just got her 2010 season off to a good start, after winning the $1,000 buy-in PCA Ladies Events, where she dominated a field of 91 players over two days to capture the title, and $24,725 first prize.
In an ironic twist, up to a third of Rousso’s opponents in the competition had qualified for the event through PokerStars, and had been taught by her at a the on site High Heels Poker Academy. Still, it was a clear demonstration of her credentials as a tutor, and Rousso insisted winning the tournament was no walk in the park. She commented:
“There were a couple of pros who played. J.J. Lui was in there, Annette Obrestad. There was a bunch of good players. Obviously you have to run well in any tournament you play in. But I didn’t make any mistakes that I know of, I played well and I’m happy with the way I played. Starting the year off with a victory is really cool.”
Other tough opponents Vanessa had to make her way past on the road to victory, included a whole host of Team PokerStars Pros, such as Sandra Naujoks, Maria Mayrinck, Veronica Dabul and Katja Thater.
Vanessa Rousso,  is also a member of Team PokerStars, and last year continued to show the depth of her poker talents after earning $1,350,000 in tournament winnings throughout 2009. Vanessa, known as ‘Lady Maverick,’ now has career earnings of over $3.5 million, and following her latest victory in the Caribbean, commented:
“Now that I’m at the point in my career where I have $3.5 million in earnings, if you count my results live and online, I think my results are beginning to speak for themselves. I’ve only been playing for four and a half years, and I just hope over the next six years or so, my results will continue to speak for themselves. Then, after a solid performance of ten years in professional poker, you can establish yourself.”
