Selbst Backs Down

As we expected, Vanessa Selbst has been extremely active today. Everytime we walk by her table, she has cards in front of her and chips in the pot. We just caught her involved in this hand.

The flop had come down {a-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts} before we got to the table, and David Weinstein had bet out 1,500. Selbst made the call, and the turn brought the {10-Clubs}. Weinstein led out again for 3,100, and after about 45 seconds of thought, Selbst tossed in the call. The river was the {a-Diamonds}, and Weinstein didn't slow down, firing out 5,500. It only took Selbst about 20 seconds to fold her hand, giving the pot to Weinstein.

Despite that loss, Selbst is still sitting on 172,000.
