Norwegian-born Annette Obrestad’s story is one that has all of the key components to make her a poker sensation. Not only did she build her huge bankroll having never deposited a single krone (she started out playing freeroll tournaments), but she had already won millions of dollars in online and live tournaments before turning 19.
Obrestad has proven her mettle by consistently sitting high atop the online poker tournament leader boards. She has even won a 180-person sit-and-go without looking at her cards (she admits looking once, before she decided to take the idea of winning the tournament without looking seriously). Known as “Annette_15,” she is already an online poker legend.
