An Orbit with Vanessa Selbst

Paul_Oresteen • Level 5: 100-200, 0 ante
We tried to catch an orbit with Vanessa Selbst but we may have coolered her.

The daily grind of tournament poker can be a mind-numbing grind that leaves players looking for other entertainment options. To give an inside look for our readers we spent an orbit with Vanessa Selbst.

Hand 1 - Seated in the cutoff she folded preflop. She picked up her iPhone and played a round of Scramble With Friends. She scored 1,004 in a second round match.

Hand 2 - Selbst limps for 200 along with four other players then the big blind moved all in for 900. All other players folded but Selbst called.

Selbst: {J-Spades} {10-Clubs} {9-Spades} {3-Spades}
Opponent: {K-Clubs} {K-Diamonds} {5-Hearts} {3-Clubs}

The board ran {J-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} {7-Clubs} {4-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} and Selbst flopped a straight and rivered a queen-high straight ending her opponent's day.

Hand 3 - She folded preflop and went back to her phone. She started a new game of Scramble With Friends.

Hand 4 - Selbst paused her game to fold preflop and watch some of the action. She made some small talk with her neighbor to her left.

Hand 5 - From Under the Gun she folded preflop and went back to her paused game of Scramble With Friends. She finished the round with a score of 1,115.

Hand 6 - From the big blind Selbst checked when one player and the small blind limped preflop. The flop came {4-Spades} {2-Clubs} {K-Diamonds}, the small blind checked, Selbst bet 300 and both opponents folded.

Hand 7 - The player on the button opened to 450, Selbst called from small blind and the big blind re-raised to 1,800. The button folded and Selbst thought for a minute and then said, "Okay, let's gamble," and tossed in the call.

The flop came {5-Clubs} {10-Hearts} {4-Spades}, Selbst checked, the big blind moved all in and Selbst called.

Selbst: {K-Hearts} {J-Hearts} {10-Diamonds} {8-Spades}
Opponent: {7-Clubs} {6-Hearts} {5-Diamonds} {4-Clubs}

Her opponent's straight draw hit on the turn when it fell {3-Spades} and was drawing dead when the river came {Q-Hearts}. Selbst busted from the tournament, packed up her things and left the Brasilia Room without even a sigh.
