Selbst Can't Call River Bet

• Level 10: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Vanessa Selbst was involved in yet another big hand just moments ago. With the board reading {j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{j-Spades}, the action checked to her in the hijack seat and she bet 3,300. Matt Waxman called from the small blind, and Jesus Sanchez check-raised to 9,100 from the big blind. Selbst tank-called, and Waxman mucked.

The river was the {10-Clubs}, and Sanchez led for 17,500.

"Why so much?" Selbst asked him.

Sanchez removed his head phones. "What?"

"Why so much?"

He didn't understand the question.

"¿Por qué tanto?" Selbst asked in Spanish.

He shrugged, then sat back in his seat. Selbst tanked for a little longer, then eventually mucked her hand.
