Annette Obrestad Signs With Full Tilt

Annette Obrestad

Online poker icon Annette Obrestad has inked a deal to represent Full Tilt Poker.

Better known as Annette_15, the online poker phenom is one of the most successful players in the history of the virtual game and has already won more than $3 million in live tournaments as well.

The one-time Betfair sponsored pro's status as an online poker legend was cemented when she once played blind in a $4 online tournament and booked a win.

But having turned a $9 freeroll win into a million-dollar bankroll, Obrestad is now considered one of the top tournament players on the planet.

Her win in the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe main event three years ago, just the fourth live event she'd ever played, made her the youngest WSOP bracelet winner in history and earned her the biggest score for a woman in the history of the game.

Already this year, the 21-year-old has a final-table appearance at the 2010 Aussie Millions main event and she will be looking for big results in her first WSOP in Las Vegas beginning at the end of May.

The announcement was made over the weekend and Obrestad's first role as a Full Tilt Pro was to host the FTOPS XVI Main Event Sunday.
