Team PokerStars Pro, Vanessa Rousso, is headed to Upstate New York to share her winning strategies with local poker enthusiasts at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona. On August 13, Rousso will be hosting her highly acclaimed Big Slick Boot Camp-- an instructional experience for players who want to optimize their playing skill, and take their game to the next level.
Rousso first gained recognition in 2006 when she became the youngest woman to cash at a final table at a WSOP circuit event. Since then she has rocked the poker world with her playing prowess raking in more than $3 million. Last year she made history once again defeating some of the biggest names in poker and becoming the first woman to make it to a final table at the highly renowned 2009 NBC Heads-Up event. Rousso captured international stardom in April, when she won first place in the European Poker Tour High Roller Event in Monte Carlo, adding $940,000 to her earnings. Her most recent cash happened just a few days ago at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, when she played her way to the final table in the 10K Heads-Up event adding $92K to her career earnings.
Rousso is not only regarded as one of the top players in the world, but has become one of the most sought after poker instructors. Her ability to teach the game is evidenced by numerous accolades from students who attribute their increased earnings to what they learned at her Big Slick Boot Camp. In fact, of the 50 players who recently attended Rousso’s Boot Camp at the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi 8 cashed in tournaments raking in over $50,000. Last year, one of her student’s took home 40K from the Main Event.
Rousso’s expertise in poker instruction recently expanded to the virtual arena. Players can now buy the young poker phenom’s new iPhone app, 1 on 1 With Vanessa Rousso. The new poker app, now available in Apple's App Store, focuses on heads-up play (with varying degrees of difficulty) with ‘Virtual Vanessa.’
Players in Upstate New York now have the opportunity to attend Rousso’s Big Slick Boot Camp. The instructional seminar reflects a poker curriculum that allows participants to learn high-level poker strategy and game theory in an interactive learning environment, that incorporates hands-on simulations and educational sessions. “My biggest passion outside of playing poker is in teaching
poker strategy. It is very rewarding when students learn something new at my camp that has a significant impact on their game.” said Vanessa. “Its so exciting when their confidence level improves as a result of implementing what they have learned.”
The 6-hour poker boot camp at Turning Stone Resort and Casino is open to all players. Rousso plans to share her cutting-edge approach to poker instruction offering specific playing strategies geared toward improving tournament earnings. Boot camp participants will receive an official Big Slick Boot Camp T-shirt and have the opportunity for photos and autographs with one of the top poker pros in the world.
Rousso is thrilled to welcome players to her boot camp and invites them to sign up on her website www.bigslickbootcamp.com or call 1-888-33-SLICK for more information.
