PokerStars Bonus Cut – Selbst v Quoss Hand (vid)

Opposing heads recently uploaded its latest Bonus Cut video with this one concentrating on one hand between PokerStars Team Pro Vanessa Selbst and highly respected pro Fabian Quoss during the 2014 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Super High Roller event.

Vanessa Selbst is widely regarded as the best female poker player of all time and up there with the very best players in the world of any sex right now. She has more than $10 million in career earnings and a wealth of titles to her name.

She has three World Series of Poker bracelets, (one won just a few weeks back) and an EPT PCA High Roller title under her belt and looks certain to cement herself as one of the best players of all time throughout her career. Along with the titles she has been very consistent throughout her career, making many final tables and good scores despite not winning the events.

Fabian Quoss himself has over $5 million in live tournament career earnings and went on to win this event. He has posted consistent results ever since 2009 and is held in high regard on the poker circuit. He has not quite had the success of his opponent in this particular hand but is undoubtedly able to mix it with the very best of them.

Both squared up in this hand, a hand that has hand people talking about how each player played it.

The Hand

The field had been whittled down to the final three players at this point with Dan Shak on this occasion being the spectator. Selbst used her trademark aggression to try and get her opponent of the hand on a number of occasions but seemed to accept defeat come the river.

Quoss on the other hand was playing it cool, knowing that he had top pair but obviously a little worried about an overpair or a better kicker, which has to be why he did not raise.

Did Quoss know what she was up to? Was this the wrong spot for Selbst to try and bluff? Do you think a river bet from Selbst would have got her opponent off the hand?

Take a look at the video and come to your own conclusions.
