PokerStars NAPT (North American Poker Tour) Mohegan Sun Main Event was a huge success as not less than 716 players signed up for the tournament. One of these players was Vanessa Selbst, a student at Yale Law School and also a very successful poker player with some great results at the World Series. Vanessa got the the best possible start in the tournament as she won almost ever single pot in the first day. After that Day 1 was over, she had created a massive stack and also earned a lot of respect from her opponents. 

Anyhow, Vanessa never looked back after Day 1 as she remained in the top of the field all the tournament. And when she finally made it to the final table and was playing heads up against Mike Beasley, it only took her 7 hands to eliminate him as well and grab the first place prize of $750,000! A big congratulations to Vanessa Selbst!

I learnt a lot from Vanessa in her '2x6' PLO video series where she's teaching 'whitelime' (Amil from 2M2M).

She goes under the alias of 'fslexcduck' online, tough player imo.

Wow: law student and poker player at the same time? Isn't that a bit confusing? In one side: "We should end with poker game, which is a way to lead people to misery because of the gambling", and in the other hand: "This is a great game because it helps you dealing with the best theory of managment of resources". She must be bipolar. Anyhow, congratulations, leading a 700 field from the begining till the end and take the first prize is not something anyone can do!
