Olivier Busquet opened for 60,000 from the hijack and Vanessa Selbst looked him up from the button. The blinds both folded and it was heads-up action to the flop. Busquet wasted little time in betting 75,000, Selbst called, and the appeared on the turn. Busquet bet again, this time 100,000, and Selbst responded by moving all in for 265,000. Busquet snap-called and Selbst discovered the bad news.
Selbst had flopped top pair, but she needed more help if she was going to crack Busquet's pocket rockets. The river didn't do it and Selbst, who began her incredible year with a win in the PCA High Roller, was eliminated in seventh place for €64,500.
"Good game," she said before making her way to the payout desk.
