WSOP Main Event Still Standing:  Obrestad, JC Tran, Rettenmaier, Glazier

While the World Series of Poker Main Event was dwindling down below 100, most of those remaining are relative unknowns, but a few big name players can be found among the bunch. 

Annette Obrestad - The first ever World Series of Poker Europe winner comes to us from Norway.  She won the 2007 WSOPE at the tender age of 18.  Now over 21, she can participate in World Series of Poker events on US soil.  Obrestad was going strong among the top 40 Saturday night.  Ms. Obrestad represents Lock Poker.

Noah Schwartz - $3,388,604, 3 1st place finishes, 44 cashes,

Jackie Glazier is one of the few other female players still sitting.  She comes to us from Australia.

Yevgeniy Timoshenko – May not be a name that stands out to many of us but the Ukraine-born, Washington State transplant has won $4,627,398 and has 34 cashes to date.  He has three 1st place finishes.  He won the Five Star World Poker Classic WPT / Season 7 - WPT No Limit Hold'em Championship and took home a massive $2,149,960 in April of 2009.
