Success off the Poker Table
Selbst was a coach and executive producer for DeucesCracked, which is an online poker training website. The site still runs today alongside other major training video sites.
Selbst is also a member of Team PokerStars Pro which will considerably add to her net worth. She is the most recognizable female poker player, which will lean towards a much higher PokerStars salary than other professional poker players.
