Vanessa Rousso, A Woman, Leads Stacked WPT Five Diamond Final Table

Vanessa Rousso attempts to put the final stamp on what could be the Year of the Woman(TM) in poker.

Earlier in this week we said we had a feeling this would be one of the best World Poker Tour final tables ever, and it pretty much shaped up that way. There’s not a single no-name friends and familier among the remaining six.

Vanessa Rousso, a woman, who went to Duke, where she went to Duke, leads the final table at the WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic. Rousso will attempt to do what every other woman in the entire world has failed to accomplish: win a WPT open title.

Rousso will enter the final table stacked at 5,830,000. She’s followed by 2010 WSOP Main Event runner-up John Racener with 3,235,000.

In third overall is a fresh-off-Daniel-Negreanu-controversy-at-the-Big-Game Andrew Robl with 3,210,000. In fourth overall is Kirk Morrison (2,650,000), who only plays 3 1/2 events per year and seems to run deep in all of them.

In fifth overall is one of the original WPT millionaires, Antonio Esfandiari (2,105,000), who makes his first WPT final table in six years.

The short-stack is WSOP bracelet winner Ted Lawson (the annoying Ire Ire guy) with 635,000.
