We'll have to wait a little longer for the first female winner on the World Poker Tour after Anthony Zinno defeated Vanessa Selbst heads up to take the honours at WPT Borgata.
Zinno started the final table third out of sixth in the chip counts and was largely untroubled during a fast-moving last day. Indeed the first elimination came just 15 hands in when short stack Eric Fields lost a flip with jacks against Kong Tran's ace king. Jacks weren't good enough for fifth place finisher David Randall either who looked good for a double up against Jeremy Kottler's Ah10h. An ace on the flop followed by tens on the turn and river were enough to send Randall to the rail. Kottler himself was the next to go, his pocket fives no good against Selbst's A6. Long time chip leader Cong Tran was eliminated in third, his AQ crushed by Zinno's AK. Zinno started heads up play with Selbst with a slight chip deficit but took control after doubling up with As10c against the PCA High Roller winner's Ac8c. It was all over just nine hands later when Selbst's shove with Ks10c was called by Zinno, whose Ac6d held to give him the pot, the title, a seat in the $25,000 WPT Championship and a first prize of $825,099, easily his biggest career score to date. The final table positions and payouts were as follows: 1. Anthony Zinno – $825,099 2. Vanessa Selbst – $492,569 3. Cong Pham – $301,225 4. Jeremy Kottler – $251,968 5. David Randall – $208,394 6. Eric Fields – $168,610 Image courtesy of the WPT.
