    Vanessa Selbst melts down in Main Event Day 1, bluffs off all chips with J8 no draw, tilts on Twitter after people criticized it

    Remember when Vanessa Selbst announced to the world that she was retiring from poker, in a move only to massage her own ego with praise from her fans, and then played in an event a short time later?

    Well, "retired" Selbst is at it again. And look at this expert play on Day 1 in the deepest, slowest-moving tournament in the world (by a wide margin):



    So she barrels super hard on a super-dry board, which I guess is a reasonable idea if you think your opponent missed, but once he calls your large raise, it's time to realize he actually has a good piece of it, and shut down, right? Especially because you have absolutely no hand and are drawing dead against top pair on the turn, right?

    Wrong. She committed all of her chips, was called, and she was out.

    She's actually done this once before in the Main, and even had a big stack at the time. That was a number of years ago.

    But let's focus on today.


    Not surprisingly, people on Twitter were criticizing her play.

    Why?

    Several reasons.

    - She's been known to have a temper and berate people at the table.

    - She is very outspoken on Twitter about her left-wing, SJW political views, but will block anyone who even slightly disagrees with her (even if done respectfully).

    - She's extremely arrogant and rubs a lot of people the wrong way.

    - She has zero self-awareness, and blames any negativity aimed at her on misogyny, homophobia, or jealousy.

    - She is a prominent poker pro (former poker pro?), and played a hand really, really badly.


    So this tweet from "Wretchy" (Dan Martin) apparently really got Vanessa hot under the collar:

    Of course, when nearly everyone on your own Twitter is telling you how wrong you are, the smartest thing to do is make another tweet, insulting the crowd criticizing you:

    A guy named Ryan Franklin showed up and was yet another person to point out that Vanessa is a huge hypocrite for complaining about people criticizing her play:

    I try not to root for people to die but this world would be much better off without that cunt. What a miserable human being. If anyone is bored, call Bridgewater Associates and ask H.R. to look at her lovely tweets and ask them if Vanessa is the type of person they want working for them.

    While I think your death wish is a bit on the harsh side, there's no point to call her work because they already know.

    Remember, she got in trouble because she went all drunk SJW on someone at a company party, and she got reported to HR.

    We know this because she stupidly tweeted about it after-the-fact, but claimed that everyone is okay with everything now.

    I can only imagine what the people at work think of her.

    But the better question is how her wife tolerates living with someone like that. I would dump the hottest chick in the world if she had a personality like Vanessa's.

    MAD ANGRY LESBIAN

    I'm sure Vanessa Selbst misses the money she used to make and other girls she used to fuck being a professional poker player and getting free money from a company like PokerStars.

    Now she's mad angry lesbian on tilt.
    Her bluffs no longer work.
    She can't adjust or change up her game.
    She berates other players all the time.
    It's good that she retired from playing poker.

    Being a fag is not a lifestyle choice.

    It is a chromosome anomaly OR
    a mental illness OR
    A sexual fetish OR
    lack of success or confidence with the opposite sex OR
    You were sexually abused as a child OR
    You were a product in the global Democrats pedophile ring.

    When she said plz stop the respectable thing to do would be to stand down and hope she doesn't do anything to harm herself and gets some help. Sadly the "help" might be the problem, she may be the victim of one of these pill pushing profiteers pretending to be mental health professionals. It's a somewhat new phenomenon but it's an epidemic and we have to be on the look out for these victims of corruption and greed. For gods sake don't try to push em over the edge.

    Any antagonizing posts beyond the plz stop point, not cool.

    Sorry Sparten, gays are here to stay, looks like you were about to roll out a final solution. I'd argue don't be a lemming, the right uses gays as a strawman to mask their treasonous policies, typical right wing wedge issue.

    Dumb article.

    Reads much more like a puff piece for Vanessa, aside from the mentions near the end that she is often "defensive", which is the understatement of the century.

    No mention of the incident at the Christmas Party where she was reported to HR for going off on someone (regarding some political/social matter). Keep in mind she publicly announced the situation on Twitter, so it was definitely fair game for the New York Times.

    I'd still like to know what exactly she is bringing to the table at Bridgewater.

    I did like how the article mentioned her recent Twitter meltdown related to the Main Event. Too bad they didn't link this thread (they linked some video instead), as this thread is the most comprehensive and easy to follow account of the situation.

    I doubt that Vanessa is bringing very much to the table at Bridgewater.

    If she was to invest her company's money buying into businesses that are only "social good" they would go broke.

    Vanessa Selbst has gotten fat since she "retired" from being a "professional poker player".

    Never thought she was good at anything. Hoping the master at bridge water is the 2nd coming of Bernie Madoff.

    Sick of hearing about this broad and her retirement . It's a fucking game. How the fuck do you retire from a game? She retires yet shows up at series to play?

    Fuck off Selbst you attention seeking gas bag. Nobody fucking cares . If you weren't a man trapped in a woman's body nobody would fucking care about you. Only reason you get any press is the sympathy gay article sells.

    It's the NY Times, not the Daily News.
