2014 WSOP Day 4 – Selbst Wins 3rd Bracelet

Win in gold letters

An action packed Day 4 of the World Series of Poker saw five events being played simultaneously, with one of those revealing our latest WSOP bracelet winner. That player was PokerStars Team Pro Vanessa Selbst who now has three bracelets to her name.

Check out all of the action below:

Event #2 – $25k mixed Max NLHE Day 4 – Selbst Claims 3rd Bracelet

Did anyone ever really see any other result than this one after PokerStars Team Pro Vanessa Selbst made that stunning come back in the semi-finals from a 7-1 chip disadvantage? She actually came into the final day with the chip disadvantage to as she was at one point down 5-1 in chips.

This all changed after a 20 minute break and she won a massive pot on hand 63 to put herself back in the driving seat. The event did not last too long after that and she was instilled as the second female poker player to amass three WSOP bracelets. Yet, she really has to be a strong bet to add another this year with the form she has been in the last couple of years.

She took home $871,147 for this win and now has more than $10 million in career tournament earnings.
