Selbst Big, Not Bigger

[user127999] • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst was looking to bag huge, but she might have to settle for just bagging big, after doubling up Joseph Mouawad with the clock getting short in the day's final level.

He shoved close to 90,000 and she pushed in to isolate with the {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}. Selbst was shaking her head the whole way as the board rolled out {6-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Diamonds} to the turn, giving Mouawad's {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds} multiple ways to win.

The {8-Diamonds} was one of them, with Mouawad making a straight to double up.
