Annette_15 – Wins WSOPE and £2,000,000!

September 16, 2007

Wow!  Already an online multi-table-tournament (mtt) legend, Annette Obrestad has just proven herself on a global stage, winning the 2007 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event.

This event was a £10k entry, with first place receiving £2m!  That’ll certainly help her online bankroll…

From Poker News – the final hand played out like this:

John Tabatabai has the button. He calls, Obrestad raises to 100,000 and Tabatabai calls. The flop is {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Obrestad bets 250,000, Tabatabai raises to 750,000, Obrestad moves all in and Tabatabai calls. Tabatabai shows {5-Spades}{6-Diamonds} for two pair, but Obrestad has top set with {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}. The turn is the {2-Clubs}, and Tabatabai is drawing dead. The river is the {Q-Hearts}. Jack Effel pauses play to count down the stacks to see if Tabatabai is covered by Obrestad. She does, and Annette Obrestad wins the 2007 WSOPE Main Event, earning £ 1,000,000! John Tabatabai is our runner-up and will take home £ 570,150.
