Speaks With Annette Obrestad
By Staff
May 20th (London, UK) The Bluff Europe Exclusive $2,000 Freeroll is here! Players from all around the world are looking forward to taking on two of the best players in the world. Annette Obrestad, World Series of Poker Europe Main Event winner, and Sorel Mizzi will log in to Betfair Poker at 8pm to take on the Bluff Europe readers. We caught up with Miss Obrestad recently to get some tips on how we can try and outlast the pros.

The tournament has been organised exclusively by the team at and Betfair, sponsors of the two players. There’s a $1,500 prize pool up for grabs, with Annette and Sorel carrying $250 bounties on their heads, making a total kitty of $2,000.

Bluff Europe asked the 19 year-old for her advice on how to tackle big online competitions, how to bust her team mate Sorel, what life has been like since her win in London and how she feels about some who think her super-aggressive brand of poker is a step too far.

Online editor for Bluff Europe Dave Bland said of the event: “Annette is simply the hottest property in poker right now. For her to take some time out of her schedule to play in the freeroll is great, and of course we’re looking forward to taking her and Sorel on. You never know, the right card comes at the right time, and anyone could win this thing.”

If the prize money wasn’t enough, Bluff Europe will also be sending out t-shirts to each and every player who signs up for the freeroll using the BLUFF1 code. So it’s official - everyone is a winner!
