Vanessa Selbst, A Wom--, A Woma--, Ugh, A Woman, Wins First WSOP Bracelet

Vanessa Selbst wins bracelt at 2008 WSOP

Yesterday, we said it was inevitable. And while she almost blew it like that loser Big Brown, Vanessa Selbst, a woman, became the first woman poker player to ever win a WSOP bracelet ever in the history of woman at the World Series of Poker.

More or less.

Selbst took a Phil-Hellmuth-sweater's-breast-sized chip lead (in person they're bigger) to the final table, but was actually short-stacked for a time when it was down to three-handed. But Selbst, whose been steadily rising the ranks as a very respected tournament player and probably has a super hot girlfriend, buckled down and grinded out her first WSOP bracelet when she defeated Jamie Pickering heads-up.

For the win, Selbst banks $227,965. Get full payouts here.
