Annette Obrestad Does it Again

Annette stepped into the poker scene without even having to make any initial deposit, and since then, she has been making huge waves. From being the youngest player to win a WSOP bracelet to having her Betfair Poker advertisements banned by the ASA for exhibiting underage gambling, Annette is surely a character that you won’t forget. Now, she just made the newest addition to her already outstanding resume by winning an event at the Aussie Millions.

All in a Day’s Work for a Poker Prodigy

If a non-poker fan sees Annette on the streets, he would think that she’s just like any average girl. But underneath the ‘average girl’ persona is one of the biggest and most feared poker sharks. Some people actually quake in terror when she smiles sweetly at them from across the felt. This reputation is well-deserved, mostly because Annette has been making records since she was a wee 15 year old girl. At 18, she was the youngest ever WSOP bracelet holder, having won the WSOPE just before her 19th birthday. She also nabbed the record for the biggest single payout to a female player when she beat Annie Duke’s record by a hair’s breadth. Now, Annette does it again by being the first female Aussie Millions title holder, having won the fourth event in the 2010 series, the $1100 Pot Limit Omaha Tournament.

An Outstanding Run

The tournament entered its final day with only 9 players left. Of these 9, Annette sat comfortable in 3rd place. The first casualty was Michael Sampieri, who fell when he clashed with Billy Seri. Mere minutes later, Tony Bloom followed, brought down by Obrestad. Then, Paul Taylor came next, followed by Emad Tatouh, also eliminated by Annette. Then, Con Angelakis had to make his exit. After this, Annet struck again, knocking out Oliver Gill in fourth place. By this time, she was practically swimming in chips. But that was hardly enough for Obrestad, as she also took out Ryan Gutch. Finally, it was just her and Billy Seri left. It must certainly have been intimidating for Seri, since Annette practically eliminated majority of the competition. Indeed, she made one more elimination that day, and ended up in first place when her K-J-J-2 clashed against Seri’s K-8-J-9. The board came up as A-9-A-2-10, and Obrestad’s pair of Jacks was at an advantage. She took home $40,000 AUD as the first place prize, as well as the prestigious title.
