Vanessa Selbst dropped part of her first day at World Series of Poker’s event battling for social justice that – along with a belligerent playing manner, has come to determine her career. Two days ago, on Twitter, Selbst said: “First break: constant flow of men in women’s bathroom, and they don’t even have the decency to close the stall doors,” reminding the Las Vegas event organizers to quickly add security.
Selbst, who would be thirty tomorrow, sharpened her poker skills when she was attending Yale University, finally playing full time after she graduated in the year 2005 with political science degree. When she was a bity worried regarding wasting her potential, Selbst came back to New Haven in Connecticut, school and got a law degree in the year 2012.
Since that time, she concentrated on a foundation to back figures which dispute social difference. She returned to poker and became the most successful female poker player in history with over US$ 10.5 million in registered tournament earnings.
According to reports, a leading website reported that recently Selbst stated that she tried to not be a poker player. She thought that she was just going to be a lawyer and then she went on to win a few tournaments and figured maybe she could make this work. Last month, she tied with Barbara Enright as the only poker player to win 3 World Series championship bracelets.
