Vanessa Selbst

Vanessa Selbst and Sam Trickett just clashed in an enormous pot that moved the latter up to the final-table average while the field has only lost three players.

The action started with Selbst, who raised from the cutoff seat to 65,000. Then, Trickett three-bet from the button to 205,000. The action folded back to Selbst, and she four-bet to 520,000 and the pressure was back on Trickett.

The runner-up of the first-ever Big One for One Drop eventually five-bet to 820,000 and Selbst did not waste much time before going all in. Selbst's shove was for around 3.9 million and Trickett started talking to himself almost immediately.

"I do not see how I can ever fold this. Why did you go all in so fast?" Trickett questioned. "I've got a very big hand."

After 10 seconds, Trickett slammed a handful of lavender T250,000 chips into the pot signalling a call.

Selbst showed the {A-Clubs}{K-Spades} and Trickett tabled the {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}, and he was ahead in a big way.

The flop brought the {A-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Spades} and Trickett cried, "No!"

But on the turn, the {K-Diamonds} hit and Trickett jumped around out of joy. The river was the {3-Hearts} and Selbst was knocked out. Selbst looked devastated while Trickett was overcome with joy.

"This is the first time I've ever celebrated a hand," Trickett said, as Selbst wished everyone a good night before exiting the tournament area.

"It's over!" Scott Seiver yelled as he approached the table, "Congratulations on your second-place finish!"
