On Friday, the last six players of a 1,189-player field battled it out on the 2013 World Poker Tour Borgata Poker Open final table. At the end of the night, after nearly eight levels of play, Anthony Zinno stood tall as the winner after defeating Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst heads-up.

Selbst had a slight lead when the cards were in the air, but Zinno played very well and created himself a 2-1 lead over the first 20 hands. Then it didn't take long before Selbst lost her final chips to Zinno...

Zinno raised opened for 1.2 million in the first hand in Level 28 (blinds 250k/500k 50 ante) and Selbst moved all in for her remaining 7.7 million. Zinno called with AClub6Diamond and Selbst turned over KSpade10Club.

The board ran out QClub9Club7Spade5Heart4Club Zinno was crowned the champion for $825k while Selbst, who had failed to become the first ever women to win an open buy-in WPT event, received $492k for finishing runner-up .

1: Anthony Zinno - $825,099
2: Vanessa Selbst - $492,569

Don't understand her shoving it after a 1.2M raise - unlikely he's bluffing there with air and if he has a hand with an ace he's likely dumping it in as Selbst is so aggressive, still only a 43% underdog, not too bad in the circumstances, but a touch loose.

This is Selbt's second near miss at the WPT, having also come third in the WPT Five Diamond World Classic in 2011. She picked up $492,569 for her finish. Congratulations for the winner

As i said in a previous news about this event i knew Vanessa it's a really tough nut to crack on live events.

I bet that she could have won with a bit more strategy HU, i saw the last HU hands and it took some weird decisions.
