"What was I supposed to do? He was three-betting me every hand", said Vanessa Selbst as she walked across the tournament floor on her way to the exit.
She was talking about Max Silver, who took all her chips. We asked him to fill us in on the details of the hand. Terrence Chan agreed that he had three-bet her nearly every hand and he did so again on this hand.
She called to see an flop where she called a c-bet from Silver. The turn brought another and Silver led again. Call. The river came an and the Brit set Selbst all-in for her remaining chips. She called but mucked upon seeing Silver's for quads. The American claimed she had pocket kings.
Silver has more than twice the chips on Chan now.
