As a self-taught coder, Vanessa Kade started her career in the video game industry. She discovered poker at the office, where her co-workers would regularly play a quick sit-and-go during lunch.  After years of grinding live games, Vanessa switched to online in order to give Twitch streaming a try. It was then that she realized she could no longer coast on intelligence alone and needed to put in serious work if she was going to be successful in the game.  After a “simulation-like” run that saw her speaking out against misogyny in the poker world and getting an ACR contract, Vanessa capped it off by taking down the PokerStars Sunday Million Anniversary Special for $1,514,920.  In this episode, Vanessa joins Elliot Roe to discuss the emotional roller coaster that played out like a fairy tale and culminated in the biggest score of Vanessa’s career.
