To Love, Honor, & Listen to Bad Beat Stories

Vanessa Rousso & Chad BrownLove is not often found in the poker community. Players are looking for money, tournament titles, and maybe a little fame. But sometimes a connection is made that just works. Enter Vanessa Rousso and Chad Brown.

They’ve been dating for awhile, and Chad proposed to Vanessa at Christmas. They made the engagement announcement for the first time yesterday on PokerRoad Radio during the EPT PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas.

Do I hear an “Awww” somewhere in Pokerati land?

Congratulations to Vanessa and Chad!

    For those of us who don’t live in Dan’s head, please explain the Henry Rollins reference.

    Fake DanM, I’m not sure if this is “Vegassy” really… I suppose they live in Vegas, but unless Dan plays cash games with Vanessa and sees the ring on her finger, I’m not sure how he would’ve known.

    He kinda looks like Henry Rollins in the pic is where Dan is going I think.

    says:

    Yes, and both men are very strong — bigger guns than are usually found in their arenas. And smart. Henry Rollins was a Rhodes Scholar.

    says:

    And a fucking psychopath.


  8. DanM
    says:

    Exactly. All of the above.

    You know, in this picture really maybe its more Henry Rollins meets Louis Skolnick (Sp.?)
