Annette Obrestad is a Norwegian former professional poker player. In 2007, she won the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) Main Event for £1,000,000, aged just 18.
Over the course of her career, she amassed over $3.9 million in career earnings, good enough for second on the Norwegian all-time money list behind Felix Stephensen.
Obrestad was born in 1988. She discovered poker at a very young age, and generated her initial bankroll from winning freeroll tournaments online.
She quit school to play poker and in 2006 won the UltimateBet Aruba Poker Classic $5,000 Championship Event. She finished the tournament in 37th place taking home $12,415.
The day before her 19th birthday, she won the WSOP Europe Main Event for £1,000,000. She became the youngest person ever to become a WSOP champion.
In 2007, she finished runner-up in the EPT Dublin Main Event for €297,800.
After winning the WSOP Europe Main Event, she was sponsored by numerous poker sites and travelled around the world playing poker. She regularly played in the partypoker Premier League and on Late Night Poker during the late 2000s.
Obrestad says that around 2012, she lost her passion for poker. As a result she started playing poker less and eventually left the poker community in the late 2010s.
Since leaving poker, Obrestad has set up a successful makeup channel called 'Annette's Makeup Corner' on Youtube.
