Doyle Brunson vs. Annette Obrestad: T Rex vs. Teenage Prodigy
Sep 26 2008 - 10:41pm
In one corner is one of the oldest living professional poker players and a true legend, Doyle Brunson. In the other - a young teenage poker prodigy and the first person to win the World Series of Poker Europe.
Poker legend Doyle Brunson and Scandinavian sensation Annette Obrestad will battle each other Sept. 26 in a best-of-three No-Limit Hold'em heads-up match that World Series of Poker organizers are billing as "King vs. Queen", according to Poker Listings.
Obrestad is the youngest person to ever win a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet and in 2007 was considered to be one of the best online multi-table tournament players in the world.
Annette Obrestad started her poker career online when she was only fifteen years old using the online screen-name "Annette_15". She claims she never had to deposit money on any online poker site. Instead she made her initial online bankroll by winning freeroll poker tournaments from which she went on to amass several hundred thousand dollars in winnings. Between September 2006 and February 2007, she won over $500,000 on Pokerstars, $200,000 on UltimateBet, and $136,000 on Full Tilt Poker. As of February 2008, Pocketfives.com, a site that tracks online poker, ranks her number 51. She also has been the site's top-ranked player in the past.
Brunson in his life time has won $5,300,000 in total live tournaments, keeping in mind that at the start of his long career a dollar could buy a full tank of gas.
