|September 21, 2007 (London, UK) Teenage poker sensation Annette Obrestad is the poker phenomenon that took the world by storm when she became the first woman and youngest poker player ever to win a Main Event at the World Series of Poker. |
Annette, whose persona has long been shrouded in mystery, has been the subject of obsessive speculation on internet poker forums for some time. This victory signifies her emergence from the shadows into the limelight. To celebrate, Bluff Europe will be releasing a series of interview outtakes over the next few weeks, in the lead up to the exclusive full post-win interview in Bluff Europe Magazine’s October Issue!
Eighteen-year-old Obrestad (who turned 19 days after the main event finished), beat off 362 runners to win £1,000,000 ($2 million) and the coveted gold bracelet. Best recognised by her online handle, Annette_15, Annette tells all in an emotionally charged interview held moments after winning the poker world’s highest honour, and its £1 million cash prize.
Interview Outtake #1 Annette on playing like a Jedi Knight:
“After you get a lot of experience you get to know when people are weak and when people are strong, and you don’t really care about your cards. I played this online sit-n-go tournament with 180 people and I stuck a Post-it Note over my cards just for fun and for practice, and I managed to win the whole thing.”
“The WSOPE was a huge success for European poker players and poker in general,” said Bluff Europe editor-in-chief Michael Caselli. “We’re loved working with Harrah’s, Betfair and The Empire Casino to make this interview possible. I thank you on behalf of Bluff Europe and our readers who will get to meet the lucky winner.”
Bluff Europe October will feature Annette_15 on its cover and will provide an overview of the WSOPE in lead-up to the interview.
