Vanessa Selbst Wins Event #2 and Collects Third WSOP Bracelet

by Joseph Smith Sr.

I stated in the first 2014 World Series of Poker article that I believed Vanessa Selbst was well placed on  my top five poker players list.  And that's my all-time top five list.  This 29-year-old young lady has demonstrated her abilities to play and win at any level of competitive poker. She backed up my top five list pick with a win in Event #2, $25,000 buy-in Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em, of the 2014 World Series of Poker.

This was an event filled with 130 entrants from the who's who of poker.  The 4 day event saw Selbst come to the final table after overcoming a 7-1 chip deficiency.  In a long, grueling heads-up session with pro Jason Mo Vanessa Selbst again came from behind to overtake Mo's 5-1 chip lead and win it all.

She collected here third WSOP bracelet and added $871,148 first place money to her bank account.  Selbst is now tied with poker legend Barbara Enright for most bracelets won by a female.  She is also within $75,000 of overtaking Annette Obrestad as the female with the most money won in WSOP events.  In what appears to be a strong continuation of her journey through the WSOP record books she also grabbed another fist with the win, she is the first female to be in the lead in the WSOP Player of the Year race.

Vanessa Selbst is destined to win more WSOP bracelets and inscribe her name in the history of poker and the WSOP.  Will this Yale Law School graduate take more bracelets back home to New Jersey from this 2014 World Series of Poker?   That is very likely.

Our congratulations to Vanessa Selbst for her win and our thanks for her contributions to the game of poker.
