Event 12: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em

Selbst Sinks, but not Sunk

• Taso 32: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante
Vanessa Selbst

We don't know how the betting went, but when we got to the table Vanessa Selbst had her opponent, Jeffery Kester, all in. Kester flipped over {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} and Selbst countered with {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. Selbst seemed slightly disgusted that her opponent's hand was so strong.

A {6-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{j-Diamonds} flop didn't bring anything special, but a {Q-Clubs} turn gave Selbst a handful of outs going to the river. Any king or ten would put Selbst's in front. The {6-Clubs} came on the river and Selbst was forced to forfeit the pot.
