Annette Obrestad Signs with Full Tilt Poker
02 May 2010
Though it is hard to consider someone a living legend at the ripe age of 21, Annette Obrestad is just that to the online poker world. If you play online it is very likely you have heard of the poker name “Annette_15″.
She is what online poker dreams are made of. Starting with nothing and playing freerolls, she eventually won one for $9 and never looked back. She moved up as her backroll grew and eventually turned that $9 into millions. Now when she rolls into Vegas for her first American WSOP, she will be playing under the Full Tilt Poker banner.
This successful online poker poker player signed with Full Tilt this week. She has a WSOP Europe bracelet already winning the inaugural main event in 2007 securing her place as one of pokers best as well as the youngest ever to win a bracelet and the largest payday for a female poker player ever.
She has played well in other live poker events also with a second at the ’07 EPT Dublin, a 13th at the ‘09 EPT Grand Final and at the ’10 Aussie Millions she made the final table in the main event and won the Pot Limit Omaha event.
Now her sites are on the 2010 World Series of Poker in Vegas. Don’t think the bright lights of Vegas will trip her up either. She has already been on Poker After Dark and almost made it the quarter finals in the NBC Heads-Up Poker Championship.
Congrats to her new Full Tilt Poker sponsor and Good Luck in Vegas!

05 May 2010Big Money Swing for Patrik Antonius of Full Tilt Poker
Let’s just do the math and see where it leads us. If you were to manage to save $50,000 a year (not counting interest) and never touched it, it would take 72 years to do what Patrik Antonius did in merely 3 months. Antonius however did it in reverse. From January 1 to March 15 of 2010, the poker tables at Full Tilt were not kind to Patrik to say the least. He dropped a whopping $3.6 million!
