UPDATE: After fallin third in chips, Vanessa Selbst has just won a monster pot rivering a straight - now holds a 2 to 1 chip lead on nearest opponnent, Ibrahim Raouf now crippled

Vanessa Selbst is looking for her second PTPR Premier Event title in the past 6 months. After winning NAPT Mohegan Sun in April, Vanessa now is the chip leader at the Final Table of France's version of the November Nine at the Partouche Poker Tour Grand Final in Cannes.

Vanessa holds a slight chip lead over Raphael Kroll. We're already down to five player left at the final table. Fabrice Soulier is sitting fourth in chips. A win by Vanessa would place her in the Top 5 of the PTPR Player of the Year Race. With a now guaranteed "worst case" 5th place finish, Selbst is assured of 37 points, and will be the 26th player to hit the 200+ point mark for the season.

The Nine were cut to eight a few hours before the start of the final table - Ali Tekintamgac, who was to enter final day play 4th in chips, was disqualified after officials discovered he formulated a plan to cheat - placing friends in "repoter" and "blogger" roles and allowing them to reveal to him what his opponents hole cards were.

Here's a look at the final 9 participants prior to the start of final table play...

1. Vanessa Selbst - 3,951,000 (USA)
2. Fabrice Soulier - 3,652,000 (France)
