Rousso makes history at NBC Heads Up Championship

Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso has just done something no other person has done before.

Rousso went to the NBC Heads Up Poker Championship in Las Vegas and faced, without question, the toughest path to the finals as any player ever. After beating the likes of Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu, and ElkY, Rousso made it deeper in the 64-player person field than any woman ever has.


Rousso's blitz through poker's legends gained her even more respect. Her seat at the final table put her in the history books. Though she couldn't take down the championship, she still proved her place in the poker world. For her efforts, she will take home $250,000.

Full results from the Team PokerStars Pro players are below. Congrats to all of them for their big finishes.

2. Vanessa Rousso -- $ 250,000
4. Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier -- $125,000
5. Daniel Negreanu -- $ 75,000
