Selbst Doubles Into the Chip Lead

Vanessa Selbst

Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst looked down at the {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts} in early position and made it 50,000 to go. Action folded around to Ole Schemion and he defended from the big blind with the {A-Hearts}{8-Spades}. Both players then checked the {K-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{6-Hearts} flop, and Schemion led out for 67,000 on the {10-Clubs} turn. Selbst, who held a full house, thought long and hard before raising to 141,000, and Schemion called after thinking about it for about 40 seconds.

Schemion was drawing dead headed to the river, which came the {2-Diamonds}. Schemion slowed down with a check, and Selbst took her time before betting 465,000. Schemion then moved all in and Selbst snap-called off for 1.204 million. Selbst’s fiancé smiled big on the rail while her girl took over the chip lead; meanwhile, a solemn-looking Schemion dropped to 1.5 million.
