Selbst's stack of 387,000 chips is nearly twice as much as the next closest competitor, Andrew Feldman (200,100).
77 players turned out for this event, which created a total prize pool of over 1.5 million GBP. The top 8 spots will pay, with the first place finisher receiving 556k GBP and the second place finisher taking home 335k GBP.
