Annette Obrestad to Full Tilt Poker
Norwegian poker phenomenon Annette Obrestad, who famously won the inaugural WSOPE, has been drafted to Full Tilt Poker. With Annette turning 21 last autumn, she can now finally participate in the WSOP for the first time this June.
“We are really proud that Annette has chosen Full Tilt Poker as her new partner. To have her representing us in her WSOP debut and in the years to follow is huge” says the representative from Full Tilt Poker.

Obrestad started to learn the game at the age of 15, when she began playing poker for play money under the nickname, “Annette_15”. After some training, Annette eventually became extremely profitable with real money culminating in her online work rank of #1 in tournaments.

The day before her 19th birthday, she had her international breakthrough in live poker by winning the WSOPE 2007 in London, and with that came a first prize of £1million. After this victory, Annette has continued her impressive live poker career by finishing 2nd in the EPT Dublin in 2007 2 weeks later, a 1st place in Aussie Millions A$ 1,000 Pot Limit Omaha Event and the 7th place in the Aussie Millions Main Event in 2010 to name a few. As well as on the live poker scene, Annette has also made a huge name for herself online, and once notably won a tournament against 128 other participants without looking at her hole cards.

Annette is extremely happy and proud to be part of Full Tilt Poker’s impressive team:
I am thrilled to be able to join Full Tilt Poker! I have always held it as my favorite poker room, and now I am going to play there even more. I am also honored to be playing amongst so many other fantastic pros and I will do my part to continue the domination from the Full Tilt Poker pros!

Up to date, the young Norwegian has won more than 3 million USD in live tournament winnings, as well as 2 million USD online.

As always it’s been a joy to negotiate with Full Tilt Poker, and I have never seen a player happier than Annette was when we finalized the deal. It was very obvious that this has been high on Annette’s wish list!”, - says Per Hagen, Poker Icons CEO.
