Another Team PokerStars Pro has just hit the rail and this time it was Vanessa Rousso. She got the last of her money in on the {K-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Spades} flop holding the {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. Unfortunately for her, she was out-kicked by the {K-Hearts}{Q-Clubs} of Shaun Deeb. The turn brought the {9-Clubs} and river the {10-Hearts} to eliminate Rousso from play.

Perkins Gets Involved with Mortensen


From middle position, Carlos Mortensen raised to 4,600. Bill Perkins called out of the cutoff seat and the flop came down {7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Mortensen fired a continuation bet of 6,800, but he was met with resistance in the form of a raise from Perkins to 21,000. Mortensen thought for a little bit and then folded his hand, allowing Perkins to take down this pot.
