Vanessa Rousso takes down the PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo €25,000 High Roller event.

Following a three-way money chop at the top, Vanessa Rousso went on to win the PokerStars EPT Monte Carlo €25,000 High Roller event Sunday.

"As long as I got my money in good I thought I had a chance," she told Tony G's queens.

A double elimination came after that as Dorfman made a spade flush to bounce both Eldar and Thorson.

Play then went three-handed when Rousso eliminated Langmann and his unconnected ace-king.

Rousso, Dorfman and Guoga traded the lead back and forth before deciding on a chop that left €150k for first.

Soon after, Guoga pushed with a weak ace and got out-turned by Dorfman's Q 9.

Rousso started heads-up behind, but doubled up making two pair. She gave away the lead, but eventually doubled again when Dorfman shoved into her trip aces drawing dead.

In the end, Rousso made a straight against Dorfman's two pair to book the €570,000 win.

"I have given 110% over the last three days," the Team PokerStars Pro said.

"A few weeks ago I finished second in the NBC Heads-Up Championships and I was happy, but at the end of the day second places are no good. You want to win."
