According to exclusive information acquired by the Poker Beat’s John Caldwell, one of poker’s favorite and most talented couples, Chad Brown and Vanessa Rousso, recently eloped in Florida while en route to the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo.
Both Brown and Rousso are Team PokerStars Pros, making them the first married couple to be featured on the same major online poker team.
As the couple eloped with little fanfare, they are reportedly planning a commemorative marriage celebration sometime this summer.
Rousso, who was already having an amazing year which included being featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, getting sponsored by GoDaddy.com, and coming in second in the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, put an exclamation mark on the marriage and the trip, by winning the EPT High Rollers event a few weeks later for €720,000 (about $963,000)- the biggest cash of her career.
Apparently married life agrees with Vanessa.
