Just over one year ago top tier professional poker player Vanessa Selbst emerged victorious in the 2013 PCA $25k High Roller for over $1.4 million. Now a year and a day later, the same Selbst heads into Day 3 of the same event with the chip lead and only 14 players remaining.
She’s taking, yet another, run at going back to back.
You may remember, back in the good old days, Vanessa Selbst took the top prize in both the 2010 and 2011 NAPT Main Events. Now, here in 2014, Selbst looks to make this one of the best PCAs ever had by one individual by taking 3rd in the $100k Super High Roller, 42nd place in the Main Event and now embarking on a deep run in the $25k High Roller.
A title defense is not going to be easy as a tournament with a $25 buy-in has some stiff competition and there are some big names left in the 14 person field including Daniel Negreanu, 2013 GPI Player of the Year Ole Schemion, Dan Smith, “Mad” Marvin Rettenmaier, Robert Mizrachi, Daniel Stern and 2012 World Series of Poker Main Event Champ Greg Merson.
