Vanessa Selbst Wins Second Career WSOP Bracelet
Joins Jennifer Harman As Only Women To Have Two Open-Event Wins
Vanessa Selbst became a two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner late Sunday evening. The professional player accumulated all the chips after three days of play in the $2,500 buy-in shorthanded ten-game mix.
Selbst outlasted a field of 421 to capture the $244,259 first-place prize. She dominated the final table, eliminating all but one of her competitors.
Her first bracelet in 2008 marked the last time a woman won an open buy-in event at the summer poker festival. The 27-year-old also became the second female player to have two titles in such events at the Series. Jennifer Harman is the other.
Selbst said she’s “honored” to be considered among the best female players of all-time.
Her historic win was the result of recent work on her all-around poker game.
“I felt like that was something that was lacking in my repertoire,” the hold’em specialist said.
Selbst said snagging her second bracelet was “getting over a hump” since the last one came about four years ago. “Now that I have my second we can start to plan the future bracelets.”
While the 2012 WSOP was profitable for her prior to Sunday’s win, Selbst wasn’t satisfied.
“Making a couple deep runs and not getting a bracelet would have been really disappointing,” she said. Her performance this summer has put her 16th in the Player of the Year race.
Here are the final results:
