Selbst Stacked, Alexander on the Ascent

Shamus • Level 4: 150-300, 25 ante
Vanessa Selbst

We came upon this one on the flop. A small pot had developed involving three players -- the small blind, Vanessa Selbst sitting UTG+1, and Jason Alexander in middle position.

The flop came {7-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs}, and the player in the small blind checked. Selbst fired 1,300, then Alexander raised to 2,900. The third player stepped aside, and Selbst waited about a half-minute before declaring she was all in. A count of her chips showed the push was for 18,625 total.

Alexander paused a few seconds, then quietly said "I call." He turned over {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} for a set of deuces, at the sight of which Selbst said "I'm dead." She turned over her {7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}. Two cards later -- the {9-Spades} and the {Q-Spades} -- Selbst was out.

Alexander was enjoying a massage during that hand which has now completed. He certainly appears relaxed. And sitting behind a stack of about 105,000 at this point can only add to his comfort level.
