The 2016 Caribbean Adventure drew to a close after nine days of fun and games. Some of the notable winners of the 104 events were pros like Bryn Kenney, Mike Watson, and Steve O’Dwyer.

Team PokerStars Pro Adrienne ‘talonchick’ Rowsome too tasted success in the Bahamas, as she claimed the biggest score of her live poker career.

34 players participated in the $2,200 Pot Limit Omaha (Hi/Lo 8-Handed Turbo) event to create a prize pool worth $65,960, of which $22,420 was scooped up by Adrienne Rowsome with a first place finish.

Thanks to her latest triumph, Rowsome now has $65,640 in live tournament earnings. These figures are impressive especially after considering the fact she is predominantly an online poker player.

Adrienne definitely enjoys playing at the PCA with five tournament cashes, including three wins, out her nine since 2011 have come at this event. That's a total payout of $46,395 at the PCA so far.

Rowsome boasts of a cool $278,022 in online winnings, playing under the screen name “talonchick”. Consistently good performances online prompted poker giant PokerStars to offer her a lucrative sponsorship deal.

An occupational therapist by profession, poker is just a hobby for this talented woman. In fact, Adrienne claims she spends most of her poker winnings on high end shopping. A BMW, jewelry, and designer handbags make up some of the items on that list.

Speaking about her lifestyle, Adrienne Rowsome explained:

“I think more people should work a real job and play poker. It definitely keeps the fun in the game and it definitely lets you make some extra money. It lets you spend without worrying. Your poker winnings don’t have to be towards your mortgage or towards your bills, your poker winning can be used for the frivolous things.”
