Vanessa Rousso“I have given 110% over the last three days. A few weeks ago I finished second in the NBC Heads Up Championships and I was happy, but at the end of the day second places are no good. You want to win.”

Well, she did just do that. She and 78 players paid up €25,000.00 to enter and after three days, it was Vanessa Rousso who took the title and the €720,000 first prize. Yes, that’s nearly a million USD! The field she outlasted was impressive, to say the least. Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey, Gus Hansen, Chris Ferguson, Eric Seidel, Barry Greenstein, Peter Eastgate were among the field.
Randy Dorfman lost heads-up, while Tony G was eliminated in 3rd place.
The killer blow came on a 3-9-8-5-K board, when Dorfman’s K-5 for two pair ran into Rousso’s 6-7 for the nut straight.
Good times for Vanessa Rousso, who plays online at Pokerstars
