Vanessa Selbst

Hand #17: Vanessa Selbst opened for 135,000 and Jason Mo folded.

Hand #18: Mo raised to 140,000 and Selbst called, which brought about a flop of {2-Spades}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Action went check-check, the {3-Clubs} appeared on the turn, and action repeated itself. The {K-Clubs} river saw Selbst bet 185,000 and it worked as Mo laid down his hand.

Hand #19: Selbst was first to act and limped from the button, which prompted Mo to exercise his option from the big blind by raising it up to 220,000. Selbst took her time before making the call, and the two players watched the flop come down {k-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Spades}. Mo checked, Selbst did the same, and the {9-Clubs} peeled off on the turn.

Mo checked for a second time, Selbst did the same, and the {8-Diamonds} completed the board on the river. Once again Mo checked, and Selbst thought long and hard before coming out with a bet of 335,000. Mo wasted little time in releasing his hand.

Hand #20: Mo raised to 140,000 and Selbst folded.

Hand #21: Selbst opened for 135,000, Mo called, and the flop fell {5-Spades}{a-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Selbst bet 140,000 and Mo folded.

Hand #22: Mo raised to 140,000 and Selbst folded. After winning the hand Mo's rail, which includes Doug Polk, began chanting, "Lets go, J-Mo. Lets go, J-Mo. Lets go, J-Mo."

Hand #23: Selbst opened for 135,000 and was met by a three-bet to 400,000 by Mo. Selbst folded.

Hand #24: Mo raised to 140,000, Selbst three-bet to 380,000, and Mo called to see a flop of {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{6-Spades}. Both players checked, the {7-Diamonds} appeared on the turn, and Selbst checked. Mo did the same and the {10-Clubs} completed the board on the river. Selbst checked for a third time and Mo came out firing 425,000.

Selbst took her time before check-raising to 1.46 million total. Mo double-checked his hand, swiveled back and forth in his chair, and then slid his cards to the dealer.
