It's been an amazing year — on and off the felt — for Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst. For the second straight stop on the European Poker Tour, Selbst has arrived early and taken down a major tournament before the start of the Main Event. At EPT London in October, Selbst won the UKIPT High Roller for €67,499 after defeating a field of 177 players, including UKIPT Dublin champion Max Silver heads-up.
Early this morning in Prague, she claimed victory in the €5,000 EPT10 PLO Championship for €100,700 after defeating a 71-strong field that included opponents such as Fabrice Soulier and fellow Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden.
Very few players have performed as well as Selbst in 2013 — which has proven to be her second-best year with more than $2.5 million in winnings.
Her outstanding year began all the way back in January when she proposed to her girlfriend, Miranda, and then went on to win the $25,000 High Roller at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) for over $1.4 million, becoming the all-time female money winner in poker tournaments.
She followed that up with a fourth-place finish in the EPT Grand Final €25,000 High Roller for $380,656 in May, and a runner-up result in the World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open in September.
