Vanessa Goes to (Value) Town

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship

On the river on a King-high board, Vanessa Selbst makes a value bet.  After a little thought, her opponent calls to see Vanessa's AK (top pair/top kicker).  He mucks his hand and Vanessa collects another pot. 

Vanessa's table is mostly full of folks that I don't recognize, but on her immediate right is Walter Harris, who went deep in the $2k No Limit event just a couple of days ago.  He finished 18th for $4,056.

'Lucky Lee' Kirsch already got lucky once today...sort not going broke with a full house.  On a board of K 9 5 x K, Lee had a full house with his K5, but Nashaat Antonious on his right had K9 for the bigger boat.  "I've still got chips" he said, which sure makes him Lucky Lee today.
