Vanessa Rousso Instructs Other Babes in Boot Camp

Poker celebrity Vanessa Rousso’s Big Slick Boot Camp is working with PokerStars on a series of Ladies Only Boot Camps. “Being a successful poker player is a combination of skill and confidence,” Rousso says.  “Since men far out-number women in the poker community, it is imperative for female players to display a strong level of confidence in their game to avoid being perceived as an easy target…this type of intimidation tactic can easily compromise optimal playing ability.” The boot camp is designed to provide women with skills and techniques to improve playing ability, as well as effective strategies to develop a level of confidence that commands respect at the poker table.

Rousso may be the top female player in the world, and 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. Of the 50 players who recently attended Rousso’s Boot Camp at the Biloxi’s Beau Rivage Casino, 8 cashed in tournaments earning over $50,000.  Last year, one of them cashed for over $40,000 from the Main Event.

The first EPT Ladies Only Boot Camp will be held April 27, in Monte Carlo (France). The 6-hour women only event will offer a 1-hour photo and autograph session followed by a 5-hour instructional boot camp.   Rousso will focus on the theory of poker and highlight specific areas that pertain to women players in a male dominated game.

The cost of the Boot Camp alone is $400, and can be purchased at

“Providing a Ladies Only Boot Camp allows me to give back to the poker community,” Rousso says. “I hope to encourage more women to become competitive players.”
