Selbst Shoves On Peters While Polk Hypes His "Big Stack"

donpeters • Level 13: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante
Doug Polk

Just before the last break...

From under the gun, David Peters raised to 26,000. Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst called from the cutoff seat, and the two of them saw the flop come down {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Hearts}. Peters led with a bet of 41,000, and Selbst called.

The turn was the {9-Diamonds}, and Peters went into the tank for a little bit. While he was thinking, Remko Rinkema tapped table mate Doug Polk on the shoulder to request an interview at the upcoming break a few minutes say. Polk agreed, but said he wanted to go to the bathroom first.

"I'm gonna need like five minutes," said Polk to Rinkema.

"Yeah, sure, no problem," responded Rinkema. "I'll be waiting right here."

As Peters slid forward a bet of 73,000 and Selbst made the call, Scott Seiver piped up and said, "No, make him do it right now! Don't give him a choice," as a joke. Everyone at the table — minus Selbst and Peters who were focused on the hand they were playing — got a good laugh from Seiver's comment.

"Yeah, I'll just follow you into the bathroom with a GoPro," joked Rinkema to Polk.

"Then we'll see who has the big stack!" said Polk without missing a beat and with a big smile on his face, causing the table to burst out in laughter.

While the rest of the table finished the fun, Peters checked the {7-Hearts} river card. Selbst announced that she was all in, putting Peters to the test for his last 220,000. Peters gave it up, and Selbst won the pot.

This led the players into the break, and Polk did return to give PokerNews and Rinkema the interview. It's an interview you won't want to miss, either, because in it Polk challenges Daniel Negreanu in online cash games. Be sure to check that out when it becomes live shortly.
