Vanessa Selbst Leads EPT High Roller Event Heading Into Final TablePublished on October 3rd, 2010 11:25 pm EST
Vanessa Selbst, who recently signed a deal to become a member of "Team Pokerstars Pro", is currently the chip leader of two different tournaments - the EPT London High Roller and the Partouche Poker Tour main event.
Selbst managed to hold on to her chip lead in the EPT London High Roller event on Sunday, finishing Day 2 with over 1.26 million in chips. Selbst, who also finished Day 1 as the tournament chip leader, will have about 400k more chips than her next closest competitor (Andrew "good2cu" Robl, 835k) when the final table gets underway on Monday afternoon.
All eight of the remaining players in the event are guaranteed a minimum of 45,900 GBP, with the winner set to walk away with 556k GBP (about $879k USD).
Jose "Nacho" Barbero (464k), Will "molswi47" Molson (126k) and Matt "ADZ124" Marafioti (96k) are all still alive in the event as well. Molson has finished in second place in TWO EPT High Roller events (2009 and 2010 PCA) and will be looking to get the monkey off of his back with a win in this event.
As mentioned, Selbst is also leading another tournament right now as well - the Partouche Poker Tour main event.
The Partouche Poker Tour main event is currently paused and is set to resume on November 6th. When the final table finally gets underway in November, Vanessa Selbst will have the tournament's largest chip stack (3,951,000).
At stake in this event? The winner will walk away with 1.3 million EUR, which works out to about $1.65 million USD.
It goes without saying that Vanessa Selbst has been on fire this year. Not only is Selbst the chip leader of both the EPT London High Roller and Partouche Poker Tour main event heading into both final tables, but she also took down the NAPT Mohegan Sun main event earlier this year for $750,000.
It should be obvious to everyone by now that Vanessa Selbst is a huge talent that will be winning tournaments for years to come.
