$25,000 High Roller

Vladimir Troyanovsky Eliminated in 2nd Place ($792,180)

Vladimir Troyanovskiy - 2nd Place

Vladimir Troyanovskiy raised to 125,000 on the button with two kings, Vanessa Selbst three-bet to 290,000 with {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}, and Troyanovskiy tanked for the better part of a minute before four-betting to 550,000. Selbst moved all in for effectively 1.735 million, and Troyanovskiy snapped it off.

Selbst's rail cheered for an ace, but the {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} flop changed nothing.

The final table area became quiet as the {10-Diamonds} turned, and Selbst, who had stood up to sweat the hand, sat back down to start cutting out chips.

Selbst shot back up out of her chair when the {a-Clubs} spiked on the river however, making her the winner of the $25,000 High Roller.

"I'll take it," she said with a shocked look on her face. "I'd rather be lucky than good."

Troyanovskiy was still smiling in defeat, and for good reason - he's earned over one million dollars at the 2013 PCA.
