Selbst Makes The Right Call

[user217945] • Nivå 6: 250-500, 50 ante
Vanessa Selbst from Day 1c.

We caught up with Vanessa Selbst in a pot of about 8,000 with another player who was in the big blind.

With the board reading {K-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Spades}{J-Diamonds} the player in the big blind led with a bet of 6,000. After a few seconds in the tank, Selbst called the bet.

The river was the {K-Spades} and the player checked after thinking about it for a few seconds. Selbst thought about it as well for a few seconds but eventually decided to check.

The player in the big blind showed {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs} for a busted straight draw and ace high, but Selbst turned over her {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} for just a pair of threes to go with the pair of kings on the board. Selbst made a good call on the turn with her underpair and because of that, she was able to scoop the decently sized pot.
