Everyone's favorite poker babe and one of this year's Sports Illustrated swimsuit models, Vanessa Rousso, filmed a commercial for the online poker room, PokerStars.com.

"(I am) filming a scandalous commercial for PokerStars," Rousso revealed over the weekend.  "Let's just say bathtub and bubbles are involved."

And not much else we here at Gambling911.com suspect.  Hmmmm

Ms. Rousso had time to shoot the commercial in between her play at this year's World Series of Poker, where she's manage to cash in a cool $80,000.

I had an opportunity to catch up to Vanessa several weeks back prior to the World Series of Poker where she informed me that her game of choice is No Limit Hold ‘Em.

"It's not only my game of choice but it's pretty much my specialty," Rousso said.  "I just turned 26 but I've been only at it for three years on the pro circuit and so I'm still learning a lot about No Limit Hold'em tournaments.  But I think I'm at the point where pretty much in the next year I'll be ready to start focusing on other things.  I've already started to work on Razz; that's probably my next best game.  I also want to extend to the spread games.  I really like those.  I think I have an edge in those because I'm very math oriented.  There's a lot of math in those and I have a good memory for cards at the table."

Vanessa won the most money thus far at Event #2 - WSOP No Limit Hold'em 40th Annual.

Coming into the 2009 WSOP, Rousso was on a hot streak, having come in second at the 2009 NBC Head's Up Championship and first at the EPT World Poker Tour Monte Carlo Grand Final.  The later event yielded her just over a million dollars.
