Bio: Vanessa Rousso graduated from Duke University and was in law school when she found poker. Her first big score in came at the 2006 WPT Championship when she bubbled the television final table and finished in 7th place for $263K. One other notable high finish includes the PokerStars WCOOP Main Event where she finished second for a little over $700K. She has shown a knack for finishing high in preliminary events at the major tournament stops as well.
Rousso is married to fellow Team PokerStars Pro Chad Brown. The self-described adrenaline junkie likes to skydive and bungee jump during her off time, as can be seen on a PokerStars television commercial.
Playing Style: LadyMaverick applies a tight and ultra aggressive tournament style, willing to make big laydowns at times.
