Championship Day 1B: Bazeley Doubles Through Selbst

$3,500 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Championship
Level 9: 400/800/100 Ante

We got to the table with approximately 7,000 already in the pot and the board showing QhJd6d. Vanessa Selbst was first to act and made a bet of 5,300. Jacob Bazeley called.

The turn was the Ah and Selbst thought for about 30 seconds before quietly announcing “all in.” Bazeley immediately said “call” and turned over AdQd for flopped top pair with the nut flush draw that turned top two pair. Selbst shook her head as she tabled AsKs. She would need a non-diamond king or ten to eliminate Bazeley.

The river was the 2h and Selbst, muttering to herself, had to send 26,600 over to Bazeley.
