We stumbled upon some action over at Table 451 and it seemed as Vanessa Selbst had limped under the gun and Phil Ivey, who was to her direct left, put in a raise to 3,000. The player on the button called and Selbst also invested the extra chips.
The flop came down and Selbst checked to Ivey who bet and got called by only the button. The turn was the and the button called another bet. On the river the popped up and Ivey silently tossed in another 3,000. His opponent gave it some thought, but couldn't make the call giving Ivey another pot.
We walked back to our desk to write up this hand but forgot to get a count of Vanessa Selbst's stack. We jumped back onto the floor and just missed the end of a chopped pot between the North American Poker Tour, World Series of Poker and Partouch Poker Tour winner and Raymond Davis. Davis already has a final table at this years WSOP finishing eight in the $1,500 Omaha hi/lo tournament cashing $24,111.
"I got excited when I saw that club," Selbst said to Davis after they both got their money back.
"I got excited when you raised, I got a woody," Davis replied instantly.
Phil Ivey started laughing and said, "What's wrong with you," after which the whole table failed to keep a straight face.
We almost forgot to count Selbst's stack with all this fun going on, but she and Ivey are right around the same stack. For all you poker fans out there, this table is right on the rail in the blue section of the Amazon Room. Make sure to come check it out!
