Selbst Bounced in Sixth

Vanessa Selbst - Out

From the hijack seat, start-of-the-day chip leader Masa Kagawa raised to 20,000. Andrew Robl flatted from the cutoff seat, then Vanessa Selbst made the call from the big blind.

The three players saw the flop come down {Q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, and Selbst checked. Kagawa bet 36,000, and Robl folded. Then, Selbst check-raised all in for 79,000.

It was at this time that Kagawa was delivered his hot chocolate from the cocktail waitress. Kagawa tipped the young lady, took a sip of his creamy drink and added a nice foam mustache to his face. Then, he called.

Selbst showed the {9-Spades}{8-Diamonds} for middle pair, and she was behind the {Q-Spades}{J-Clubs} for Kagawa.

The turn was the {7-Clubs}, and the river completed the board with the {J-Spades}. Kagawa won the pot and sent Selbst home in sixth place.

The tournament is now on the official bubble.
