Stuck at a limit that you just can’t break? Tearing your hair out as you struggle to move up to higher stakes isn’t what you signed up for. Neither is having to replace all the laptops you break when your A-game loses to suck-outs. Or maybe you’re sick of the climb and ready to get a lift towards the top of Mount Robusto.
Save time, money, and tilt with one-on-one guidance from someone who’s scaled this pitch. They know the way – what you need, and how they’d do it differently the second time around.

Vanessa “fslexcduck” Selbst
Vanessa (AKA fslexcduck) has been playing poker for over 10 years. She became serious about the game in 2004, starting out in online and live NLHE and PLO cash games. She can usually be found playing limits between 25-50 and 50-100, but will play up to 200-400 when the mood arises. From 2007-2008, she hopped onto the live tournament scene, winning a WSOP bracelet and amassing hundreds of thousands in earnings along the way. She took a hiatus to complete her first two years of Yale Law School, only playing events local to Connecticut. During that “hiatus” she managed to win an NAPT main event title and two World Poker Finals preliminary events, bringing her live tournament winnings to over $1.6 million. She is now back in full swing on the tournament scene.
My introduction to poker was, like many here, born out of a mix of friendly competition and a ruthless desire to dominate everyone around me while participating in it. I was working as a computer geek at the University of Washington, and our new roommate introduced our entire household to the game -- a variant I had never seen before but quickly became enamored with: No Limit Hold'em. Between a hypertilty girlfriend, a budding statistician, a young-but-experienced-businessman/poker player hybrid, and myself, we had a great mix for shorthanded hold'em games. Usually a few other friends joined and we'd play hours and hours each week. I wasn't the best player at the table, but I wasn't the worst, and I liked all of the elements of the game: the math, the psychology, and, of course, the money. I was hooked.
I started playing poker in college dorm games with friends in 2002. I immediately found Texas Hold'em fascinating and turned to the Internet for easy access to games and strategy advice. I began playing for play chips on Ultimate Bet, turned a freeroll into a bankroll for penny limit games, and never looked back. Early on in my poker career I found the 2+2 books and strategy forums where I have learned much of what I know about poker, and made lifelong friends.I often get bored of one poker game and learned to branch out so I could still have some fun while logging hands. I was lucky enough to learn 2-7 Triple Draw when it first was introduced on UB many years ago, and now consider it to be my best game. I also play Badugi and other draw games that aren't available online, and consider myself competent at most limit mixed games. I consider my regular game to be 30/60 Triple Draw or LHE online and 100/200 live, but have played as high as 400/800 LHE and mix.
My earliest poker memories involved 7 card stud and a bag of M&M;'s (which we used for chips) on a family vacation in a hotel whose pool was clearly not enough to subdue the gambler in me. From underage trips to Atlantic City to 3 big MTT wins in one week, the earlier years of my poker career are a less-than-graceful waltz of missteps and suckouts that I'm convinced everyone has gone through. I found 2+2 the same summer KRANTZ and I found out we were the only people in town and watched that Gatti-Mayweather fight (as KRANTZ showed me the finer points of stacking Party regulars). At the optimistic age of 23 I thank that site for what it did to me, and am convinced I won't be looking back any time soon. I'm currently a "mid-limit regular" when somebody isn't nagging me to do something else. I do love me some heads-up limit and balance it pretty well with play anywhere from 3 to 10 handed. Do I plan on playing the biggest game some day? Sure. But more than that, I strive to understand the game of poker on a higher level--something I work to accomplish each and every day.
