At last year's PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, Vanessa Selbst won the $25,000 High Roller event which earned her the title of winningest female poker player of all time. Now, one year later, Selbst is back at the PCA felt and primed to add another victory to her already stellar resume.
Selbst holds an incredible 16 six-figure scores to her name and two seven-figure scores. All of these winnings amount to over $8.24 million in live tournament winnings. Selbst famously won back-to-back NAPT Mohegan Sun Main Events in 2010 and 2011 (the latter of which actually saw her defeat table chip leader Dan Shak heads up). Her largest score to date occurred back in 2010 when she won the Partouche Poker Tour Main Event in Cannes for $1.823 million. Selbst is also the proud owner of two World Series of Poker bracelets which she won in 2008 ($1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha) and 2012 ($2,500 10-Game Six-Handed). In September of 2013, Selbst had a spectacular showing at the World Poker Tour Borgata Poker open, where she ultimately finished runner-up in the $3,500 Main Event. Selbst added $492,569 to her pockets for that impressive showing.
Selbst not only has one of the most impressive tournament records at this table, but also of anyone to play the game. Coming in as second in chips, Selbst will certainly be a force to be reckoned with at this final table.
