Vanessa Rousso has slipped back to short-stack status of late. Just now we picked up a hand in which she was trying to turn things around.

Rousso had opened with a UTG raise and got one caller in the big blind. The flop came {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{7-Spades}, and Rousso's opponent check-called her continuation bet of 2,000. Both then checked the {5-Clubs} turn.

The river brought the {2-Spades} and a bet of 4,000 from Rousso's opponent. Rousso thought about it, then called, tabling {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}. But opponent had {Q-Diamonds}{9-Spades} for trip nines, and thus claimed the pot.

Rousso now sits with 9,100.
