2010 PCA Ladies Event won by Vanessa Rousso

PokerStars Caribbean Adventure finished up recently and one of the events during the series was the $1,000 Ladies Event. This event saw 91 ladies turn out to compete over two days to try and win the first place prize. In the end it was Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso who would claim the title.

Rousso would have to get past other PokerStars Pros as well as poker pros and PokerStars qualifiers. Rousso commented on the tournament by stating: “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.”

Out of the 91 players, 16 would cash out during the tournament. Each would earn a piece of the $88,270 prize pool. Halli Pinson was one of the prize winners, who went head to head with Rousso in the end of the tournament. Pinson commented to PokerStars on the field during the competition. She commented:

“This event was a lot more serious than most ladies tournaments. I didn’t recognize that many faces, but the field seemed a lot more experienced than usual. These women had come to play, and they had come to win! Vanessa Rousso dominated the event though – she had good cards and she’s an experienced player: the combination was lethal.”
