Earlier in the day we posted a hand where Stacy Taylor got the best of Vanessa Selbst for a decently sized pot. Taylor was able to finish the deed here on Day 2 by taking out Selbst just before the break. We didn't catch the action but Taylor was kind enough to relay it to us.
A player opened from middle position with a raise to 1,200. Taylor called the raise before Selbst bumped it up to 4,100. Action folded around to Taylor who called.
The flop came down and Taylor check called a bet of 4,500 from Selbst. The turn was the and Taylor said that she instantly moved all in. Selbst went into the tank.
"She was asking me a bunch of questions, like 'Why would you make it so much?' and other saying some other stuff like 'so sick, so sick.'" Taylor explained. Eventually Selbst made the call.
Taylor was in great shape with the nut straight but she still needed to avoid a ten for a chop, which she did when a fell on the river. That was good enough for Taylor to lock up the pot and the knock out, sending Selbst home from the tournament.
