In case you missed it, PokerStars and Vanessa Rousso recently parted ways. The world's largest poker site nor the long-time American pro have mentioned anything about the split, but many believe the break up occurred at the end of January this year and that it was yet another move by new owner Amaya Gaming to cut expenses.

Maybe she is like another member of Pokerstars that leaved in past months, the new structure and new business that been put on the room, maybe is a thing that this profissional players can be a part, and he or she see that is better improving alone, and dont see her face with a space that dont have a "friendship", maybe like casino games, or some of the tourneys, i dont know, just opinion and articles that been said.

I think pokerstars employ women more on their attractiveness rather than poker skill,the women who I see on TV representing stars are not that good compared to others but it is probably more to attract young men to the game rather than women.
Hmmm, 'parted ways' and 'about the split' and 'the break-up occurred' and 'another move' and 'to cut expenses' are expressions which a divorce lawyer would use during negotiation or in the court, not words you would expect to hear about a contract termination. Woman or no woman this article was worded in a funny way.
By the way this above states that she has over 4 million in live tourey earnings - does she play this good online too? I found it interesting that Amaya cutting expenses yet they keep up with million dollar promos like those spin&gos...
