Online giant PokerStars has released another poker documentary on one of their team members. Adrienne “talonchick” Rowsome, a female Team togel Singapore professional, is the subject of their latest Youtube documentary. Their first short film focused on Randy “nanonoko” Lew, a mid-stakes super-grinder who plays millions of hands each year. While Rowsome does not quite put in as much volume, her life is certainly no less boring.
Rowsome is one of the more decorated female players in online poker history; however, poker is not her only passion. She actually uses her poker winnings as supplementary income, using the extra money to purchase jewelry, cars, and other lavish gifts. During the day, Adrienne spends her time as an occupational therapist, helping those with illnesses or disabilities through any and all issues. Because of her busy work schedule and social life, she turned to online poker to fit her passion for the game into her everyday life.
Originally from Edmonton, Canada, Adrienne is one of the more feared mixed game players in online poker. She has made a name for herself in mixed game tournaments, including the 2011 WCOOP 8-Game Championship which saw her place 4th for $13,272. Rowsome has also been quite a pioneer for PokerStars’ new Women’s Poker League, making the final table of the PokerStars Woman’s Sunday an impressive five times this year. The $55 buy-in event has a $10,000 guarantee and runs at 14:30 ET each and every Sunday. The winner’s share can approach $4,000, with players picking up an extra $50 for busting any female Team PokerStars pros in the field. Typically joining Rowsome from the Stars staff are Liv Boeree, Fatima Moreira de Melo, and Celina Lin.
This documentary comes at a great time for women at PokerStars. Their Women’s Poker League has helped once again separate themselves from the rest of the online poker world. With freerolls, microstakes buy-in tournaments, and major weekend events, the poker league is great for women of all skill levels. The league is perfect for women who are new to poker and just want to try their hand at the game. It’s ok to be nervous, even players as good as Rowsome get jitters before a session. While she might have been a bit nervous as first, Rowsome is anything but apprehensive now.
WPT Announces its 2012 Schedule
The World Poker Tour has recently announced its final nine tour stops of its incredible tenth season. Continuing the WPT’s efforts to expand globally, three of the events will be held in Europe. The WPT will be stopping in Dublin, Ireland in January, in Venice, Italy in February, and then in Vienna, Austria at the end of March.
In the U.S. we will continue to listen to Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten announce the televised final tables at the L.A. Poker Classic at the Commerce Casino, the Bay 101 Shooting Star in San Jose, the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown in Hollywood, Florida, and a new debut event as the WPT comes to the Jacksonville Poker Room in Florida for the first time.
Season X concludes once again this year at the Bellagio with the WPT’s World Championship. The Main Event is a $25,000 buy-in and following the success of last year’s super high roller event, there will once again be another $100,000 super high roller event this year as well. The player of the year race is still wide open, so expect lots of big name pros to be entering these events and giving us a good show to watch.
