Vanessa Selbst, 28 from the United States, enters the final table fourth in chips. In 2010, Selbst finished fourth in the £20,000 High Roller event at EPT London, which is one of twelve six-figure scores on her résumé. Selbst of course won both NAPT Main Events held at Mohegan Sun in 2010 and 2011, earning a total of $1.2 million, and she took down the 2010 Partouche Poker Tour Main Event, pocketing $1,823,430.
With a fifth-place finish or higher, Selbst will take first in the all-time money list for female players, passing Kathy Liebert by a few thousand dollars. If she finishes third or higher, she will become the first female to earn $5 million in live tournaments.
