ACR Pros - Vanessa Kade
Vanessa Kade joined the Americas Cardroom Pro Team in early 2021. The Kelowna, British Columbia native’s accomplishments aren’t limited to poker. The cash game queen has also worked for some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry.
While Vanessa is known for her love of cash games, she does play her share of tournaments too. In March 2021, the Canadian poker player crushed the PokerStars Sunday Million 15th Anniversary tournament to win $1,514,920. She also cashed in several 2020 WSOP online events as well as in many regional live events across Canada.
Even though Vanessa only started playing poker professionally in 2014, she’s no stranger to the world of gaming. She previously served as a producer for Disney Interactive Studios, Lucasfilm, and BioWare. Vanessa also has experience in programming and graphic design. We’re excited to have her represent Americas Cardroom.
Vanessa is a strong advocate for women. She’s not afraid to hold players accountable for the sort of misogyny and bullying that undermines the spirit of the game. Although poker is largely dominated by men, with powerful voices like Vanessa’s, the game is changing for the better.
