Selbst Crushing the Table

Posted 2012-07-01 GMT-7 by


Vanessa Selbst has gone on a rampage to hold well over two thirds of all the chips in play.

The first hand was against Michael Saltzburg and Selbst play out a hand where Selbst ended up drawing a jack-ten low, which was enough to see Saltzburg's cards into the muck. A few hands later and she would leave Chris Bjorin crippled. Here is how the hands looked.

Selbst: {x-}{x-} / {a-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} / {x-}
Bjorin: {x-}{x-} / {2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{j-Spades} / {x-}

On fourth street, Bjorin bet and Selbst called. On fifth, it was the other way around. On sixth, both players checked and it was the same on seventh. At showdown, Selbst turned over {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{a-Clubs}, with her ten-seven low good enough to leave Bjorin crippled.
