Selbst Spikes Straight on the Turn to Double

Action folded to a short-stacked Vanessa Selbst in the hijack and she moved all in for 315,000. The cutoff and button both folded, and Scott Anderson thought for a few moments before making the call from the small blind.

Showdown

Selbst{J-Hearts}{9-Spades}
Anderson{A-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Selbst was playing from behind for her tournament life, and the {2-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop would leave her wanting, though it did give her a gut-shot straight draw. Wouldn't you know it, the said straight got there when the dealer burned and turned the {10-Spades}. Anderson was drawing dead headed into the {6-Clubs} river, and Selbst received a much-needed double.
