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.
Event #17 of the World Series of Poker was the Ladies No Limit HoldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢em tournament and just over one thousand women registered to compete in the event. Several pros turned out for the event including Svetlana Gromenkova, J.J. Liu and Erica Schoenberg but it would be Lisa Hamilton who would outlast the field and take down her first WSOP win. Amazingly it was one of her first ever live tournaments.
