    Vanessa Selbst melts down in Main Event Day 1, bluffs off all chips with J8 no draw, tilts on Twitter after people criticized it

    Remember when Vanessa Selbst announced to the world that she was retiring from poker, in a move only to massage her own ego with praise from her fans, and then played in an event a short time later?

    Well, "retired" Selbst is at it again. And look at this expert play on Day 1 in the deepest, slowest-moving tournament in the world (by a wide margin):



    So she barrels super hard on a super-dry board, which I guess is a reasonable idea if you think your opponent missed, but once he calls your large raise, it's time to realize he actually has a good piece of it, and shut down, right? Especially because you have absolutely no hand and are drawing dead against top pair on the turn, right?

    Wrong. She committed all of her chips, was called, and she was out.

    She's actually done this once before in the Main, and even had a big stack at the time. That was a number of years ago.

    But let's focus on today.


    Not surprisingly, people on Twitter were criticizing her play.

    Why?

    Several reasons.

    - She's been known to have a temper and berate people at the table.

    - She is very outspoken on Twitter about her left-wing, SJW political views, but will block anyone who even slightly disagrees with her (even if done respectfully).

    - She's extremely arrogant and rubs a lot of people the wrong way.

    - She has zero self-awareness, and blames any negativity aimed at her on misogyny, homophobia, or jealousy.

    - She is a prominent poker pro (former poker pro?), and played a hand really, really badly.


    So this tweet from "Wretchy" (Dan Martin) apparently really got Vanessa hot under the collar:

    Of course, when nearly everyone on your own Twitter is telling you how wrong you are, the smartest thing to do is make another tweet, insulting the crowd criticizing you:

    A guy named Ryan Franklin showed up and was yet another person to point out that Vanessa is a huge hypocrite for complaining about people criticizing her play:

    I try not to root for people to die but this world would be much better off without that cunt. What a miserable human being. If anyone is bored, call Bridgewater Associates and ask H.R. to look at her lovely tweets and ask them if Vanessa is the type of person they want working for them.
