Vanessa Selbst

Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst hasn't played much poker in 2016, with only one small result to speak of.

However, poker's all-time leading money winner among female players, with a substantial $11,728,256 in career tournament earnings, is always a threat to run deep.

Having turned up to play in Monaco today, Selbst got off to a hot start, building her stack up into the 75,000-chip range. Moments ago, she joined two opponents in checking an {8-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop, but when one checked the {k-Spades} turned, she led for 900.

Just one player called in position and when Selbst led the {j-Clubs} river for 2,200, he raised to 6,750 total. Selbst made the call, but mucked, moving a bit below her peak point of the day so far when he showed {k-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} for two pair.
