Annette Obrestad is a professional poker player from Sandnes, Norway. Born September 18, 1988, she is the youngest person to ever win a WSOP bracelet, winning the 2007 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event one day shy of her 19th birthday.
Obrestad is known by her online screen name, “Annette_15”, a username chosen as a nod to her young age (15) when she began playing online. Annette boasts some legendary online accomplishments, claiming to have never made a deposit. Instead, she built her online bankroll purely from winning freeroll tournaments. Another tale of Obrestad’s fame comes from her winning a 180 player online tournament without seeing her hole cards.
According to Hendon Mob, Annette’s live earnings exceed $3.1 million, a number likely to soar now that she has reached aged 21 and is able to play in North American live events.
Previously with Betfair Poker, in 2010 Annette became a Full Tilt sponsored pro. Learn more about Annette Obrestad
