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!
