Annette Obrestad: Youngest Player To Win A WSOP Bracelet!

by Nitya Jain Posted on 15 Jun, 2020

For the love of poker, fanatics can push themselves beyond their limit to grasp and learn the game of skills! Well, freeroll poker tournaments are exciting for the low stakes players but taking an advantage to build a bankroll of nearly $500,000 would still be a dream. But they say miracles happen every day, so Annette Obrestad believed in the phrase and started grinding online at the age of 15 under the username ‘Annette_15’.

After three years of intense hard work and dedication, Obrestad became the youngest player ever to win a WSOP gold bracelet. Rewinding a little bit, between September 2006 and February 2007 she won $500K on PokerStars and $200K on UltimateBet and $136K on Full Tilt Poker. Drawing inspiration from her father who taught her poker variants like five card draw and seven card stud.

But of course, the kicker was she had to wait until she was 18 to withdraw any of the money from her account. Ever since she was old enough to start entering live tours, she grabbed every opportunity she could get her hands on. During the early morning hours of 17 September, Obrestad won the very first 2007 WSOP Europe £10,000 No Limit Hold’Em Event to the delight of a cheering audience!

She will always be remembered as a Norwegian teenager who at 18 years and 364 days made a WSOP history, the youngest world champion tying a gold bracelet around her wrist. She dominated a field of 362 entrants to win a 7-digit score of £1 million ($2.1 million). “I really thought it would come down to a coin flip situation or something like that. When I hit a set on the flop I thought I might get some action because there were so many draws on the board. When he raised I was already thinking, Oh! I’m going to win the World Series of Poker!”

Obrestad may have just changed the game of poker and one’s perception of it forever. She is only 32 now and a terrifying player with a total tally of live earnings over $3.94 million! For more updates on, keep reading GutshotMagazine.com and stay tuned!
