Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst has been presented with a golden opportunity here in the EPT10 Sanremo Main Event. She currently sits second on the EPT10 Player of the Year Leaderboard behind Ole Schemion. The young German busted early on Day 1b, which means Selbst has a chance to add some points to her total and close the gap between her and Schemion.
In a recent hand, there was around 6,000 in the pot and a board reading when Selbst checked from the big blind and Ismail Erkenov bet 3,500 from middle position. Selbst pushed back with a check-raise to 10,500, leaving herself about 11,000 behind.
Erkenov thought for a bit before three-betting, and Selbst snap-called off her stack.
Erkenov had picked the wrong spot, and he paid the price after the blanked on the river.
