Vanessa Rousso winnings Even though Vanessa Rousso is still young (who would disagree with that?), she already has a tournament prize list that places her at the top of her generation of poker players.

It is an understatement to say that looks can be deceiving at times. And as deception is the tool of the trade for poker players, it is clear that Vanessa knows how to use her image to her advantage.

Her first poker profits came from playing in live ten-seated sit and go tournaments at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, profits that she used to pay for the $1,500 entry fee at a Atlantic City tournament which brought her a prize of $17,500

A good start as she was only 21, the legal age required to be able to step in Casinos in the United States. From there started her meteoric rise.

Vanessa Rousso obtained her first professional tournament success in 2005. In June of that year, Vanessa won an event at the Las Vegas No-Limit Hold'em Summer Series and then finished 45th at the WSOP $1,000 Ladies No-Limit Texas Holdem event.

In February 2006 she finished 5th at a $1,500 NLHE WSOP Circuit Event. In April 2006, she ended 7th at the $25k WPT season four event, earning $263k. Then on September 2006 she won the $5,000 NLHE event at the 4th Borgata Open, cashing $285k. And she had three money finishes at the 2006 WSOP. What a good year!

Vanessa Rousso is no stranger to online poker as a proud member of team PokerStars, where she is often seen going deep in their largest regular tournament, the PokerStars Sunday Million.

But it is in their other famous event, the World Championship of Online Poker that she shone in 2007 with a second place from a field of 2,998 players, winning a cool $700k in the process.

In 2008 Vanessa repeated her prowess of getting 3 money finishes at the WSOP. Likewise in 2009 she got four prizes at the WSOP.

In 2009 she had the best performance ever of a female player at the National Heads-Up Poker Championship tournament, finishing second and getting $250,000.

Finally in May 2009 she won the E25,000 EPT High Roller Championship earning her largest prize to date, $749k.

Bravo, Lady Maverick.
