Following last nights Scandinavian Poker Awards, the teen sensation, Annette Obrestad managed to take home a trio of awards for the Norwegian Golden Hand, Best Female Poker Player and Best Performance of The Year (WSOPE 2007) award.
Obrestad made history in September 2007, after winning the first ever WSOPE Main Event with 361 runners. She also became the youngest ever winner of a WSOP Main Event, as well as being the only ever female to have won a Main Event. Obrestad came close to winning another major live title in November 2007, where she came second to Reuben Peters at the EPT in Dublin.
Despite her very young age, she is currently Norway’s second most successfull player in the all-time money list for live tournament cashes with over $2.4 million.
Amazingly, because of her age, Obrestad will have to wait until 2010 to be able to play in the U.S and more importantly, the WSOP in Las Vegas. A frightening prospect, considering that she is already currently considered a major figure in world poker, so who knows what she’ll be like in 2010 after 2 more years experience!
