During a Twitter debate that raged over the weekend, Vanessa Selbst was the centre of controversy once again.
The conversation soon came around to the way she treated Marty Mathis—he called her out for being a hypocrite: “Given my memory/perception of you, I just thought it was hypocritical to call others berating your play out.”
Although she didn’t remember the incident, Selbst did apologise but went on to say that this kind of fallout played a “huge part” in why she decided to say goodbye to the poker circuit.
Selbst announced on New Year’s Eve 2017 that she way saying goodbye to the poker world instead opting for to work for a hedge fund— despite playing in the WSOP this year.
