Annette Obrestad blogging at Betfair

Annette Obrestad

Now that Annette Obrestad has joined the ranks of Betfair Poker's other sponsored players, she will have a regular blog on the poker site.

Obrestad, better known online as Annette_15, became the youngest-ever winner of a World Series of Poker bracelet in September when she took down the inaugural WSOP Europe Main Event in London. For the win, she pocketed £1 million.

She also recently came in second at a European Poker Tour event in Dublin where she added another €287,800 to that.

In some of her recent blogs, Obrestad talks about her experience at the EPT Dublin and some of the hands she got involved with.

Also blogging on the site are sponsored pros Thomas "Buzzer" Bihl and Ben "Milybarkid" Grundy.

Bihl and Grundy also have their own events. During the Beat the Buzzer events, Bihl will be multi-tabling on Betfair Poker between 7 and 9 p.m. with a bounty on his head for any player who knocks him out.

He'll be playing around 40 sit-and-go's each fortnight at stakes ranging from $2.50 to $400. The dates the Beat the Buzzer will take place are:

  • Nov. 14 and 28
  • Dec. 12 and 26
  • Jan. 9 and 23
  • Feb. 6 and 20

The start date isn't set yet, but soon players will get a chance to play in a $5,000 guaranteed Pot-Limit Omaha multi-table tournament hosted by Grundy. "Time to Milk the Kid" will take place on a weekly basis with a buy-in of $50 with re-buys.
