Selbst Cracks Aces to Cross 300K


Vanessa Selbst and an opponent were involved in a preflop raising war culminating with Selbst five-bet shoving with {8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}. Her opponent called instantly with {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} and the defending champ was on the verge of elimination.

However, the flop was great for Selbst as it came down {J-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{5-Spades}, giving her flush outs and an inside straight draw. The {5-Clubs} turn was no help, but the river brought the {7-Spades} to make an eight-high straight for Selbst.
