Vanessa Kade has had quite a year. Back in March, she signed with Americas Cardroom as a sponsored pro. Just days later, Kade picked up the biggest score of her poker career, winning the PokerStars Sunday Million 15th Anniversary Event for $1,514,920. Kade has been playing plenty of poker since her big win in March, and gave her fans a peak into her setup on Sunday, August 29 when she settled in to play a handful of tournaments on ACR.

In an 11-second video posted to her Twitter and Instagram pages, Kade casually showed off her impressive multi-tabling setup for Sunday’s Americas Cardroom multi-table tournament slate. The ACR pro had 11 poker tables up across an extra wide LG screen and an ASUS screen. Among her many tables running was the $2,650 BOSS Main Event that featured a $1 million guaranteed prize pool.

After grinding out tournaments for 18 hours, Kade had picked up a handful of cashes and had played her way into day two of four different tournaments. She final-table bubbled the $630 BOSS #37 event for a $3,432 score, and finished runner-up in an $88 buy-in $50K guaranteed event for $6,837.

But best of all, Kade finished in second place out of 2,292 runners in the $215 BOSS #41 event. That deep run earned Kade her biggest cash of the day with a win of $55,540.

Kade has continued to crush since her $1.5 million win

Seeing Vanessa Kade pulling down these big wins on Sunday won’t come as any surprise to those that have been keeping track of her success this year. Back in July, Kade was down to under one big blind before making an incredible comeback in a $55 buy-in $125K guaranteed event on ACR, winning the tournament for $29,628.

Kade also had some strong showings in the U.S. Poker Open, in the PokerGO Tour in Las Vegas back in June. She finished in fourth place in the $10,000 buy-in Event #9 for $94,050 and followed that up two days later with a fifth place finish in the $25,000 buy-in Event #11 for a $138,000 payday.

The Canadian poker pro has made a name for herself in recent years by being a great player on the felt and a great ambassador for the game off of it. She will definitely be one of the poker stars to watch this fall when live poker returns in full force for the 2021 World Series of Poker.
