EPT9 Deauville: Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso and Ilan Boujenah go degen
Vanessa Rousso is pretty good at this poker thing: $3,496,294 in live winnings and won some $700,000 finishing runner-up in the WCOOP Main Event back in 2007. She's also pretty calm at the table - it must be all that game theory stuff keeping her in check. Ilan Boujenah is pretty far from calm, but equally seems to know what he's doing. He is an absolute firecracker who plays with his heart on his sleeve. He's quite brilliant in most respects, but that doesn't automatically gift you chips (he's now out).
Keep an eye open for Rousso's cheeky wink at the end. That must have been rehearsed.
