Annette Obrestad Name Reverberates in the Casinos

In the world of gambling, women have not been vibrant, thus, the few who get a fighting chance to win are trendsetters. The list of top women poker players includes Annette Obrestad whose record is impeccable like her male counterparts. She has participated in world poker tournaments and walked away with highly coveted accolades and whopping sums of cash. Her moves are only described as tactical and strategic. She is hails from Norway and was the youngest woman to win a bracelet at the World Series of Poker. In this vein, a glimpse at some of her commendable wins will shed light on why her legacy in the casinos is epoch-making.

Her rise to glory was as a result of winning the WSOPE 2007 bracelet. Nevertheless, before this triumph, she was vibrant online where she has won $500,000 at the PokerStars.Net, $200,000 at UltimateBet.com and $136,000 on the FullTiltPoker.Net. Pokerfives.com which tracks online casinos ranked her #51 as of 2008, before she was #1. She won the WSOPE and walked away with $2 million first prize, becoming the first woman to win a single tournament payout. In 2009, she was eligible to participate in the WSOP, since then she has made more than $3.9 million on live events.  Although her absence at the global poker games is lengthy since her win in 2007, her performance is indelible in the poker regime.

Obrestad was second in the major live event, she took $431,184 at the 2007 EPT Season 4 PokerStars.Net in Dublin, and she was the chip leader throughout to the final table. Her performance is formidable and fabulous. However, if she returns to the live tournaments one can admit she will emerge triumphant. Suffice to say, her online poker game scores evidently indicate she has great potential to make final tables and eventually win. But this is up to her when she throws her hat in the tournaments in future.
