Vanessa Selbst continues to add to her impressive poker resume.

Last week she took down the Super High Roller Celebrity Shootout and won $1 million.

Meanwhile, ESPN has released the television schedule for the 2015 World Series of Poker.

Vanessa Selbst Wins Super High Roller Celebrity Shootout for $1 Million

This past Wednesday the finals for the Super High Roller Celebrity Shootout were aired on NBC SN.

A week earlier the first half of the shootout was aired and Kevin Pollack defeated Hank Azaria, Don Cheadle, Norm McDonald and Brad Garrett to make the finals.

In the first two episodes that aired on Wednesday Vanessa Selbst defeated Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth and Antonio Esfandiari en route to her showdown with Pollack in the finals.

The last episode featured the heads-up match between the two which was supposed to be a best-of-three match. While Pollack played solidly early on it wasn't enough to hold off Selbst and he lost in consecutive matches.

As the tournament was a "winner takes all" format Selbst walked away the winner of $1 million.

This is the third time in Selbst's career that she has won seven figures. She now has over $11.64 million in poker tournament earnings, further solidifying her spot on the top of the Women's All-Time Money List.
