She's baaaaack!  The world's greatest female poker player has announced she is coming out of retirement.

Selbst tweeted last week:

I’m heading out to #WSOP for this weekend and then the main. In honor of the monsters in our gov’t, I will do a matching campaign for 50% of my WSOP profits to groups that support immigrant communities like @MaketheRoadNY. Pls join in pledging what you can at this critical time.

Selbst announced back in December she would be leaving the tables (that didn't last).

She tweeted out at that time:

I'm parting ways with PokerStars and moving on from poker in general

Her total live earnings amount to $11,851,384.
