Obrestad Ousting the Competition

Annette Obrestad can do no wrong, at least for now.

We walked by just as Obrestad scooped a small pot after value-betting with aces. In the very next hand, Obrestad raised to 300 from under-the-gun and was called by both the blinds. The flop came {Q-}{10-}{6-} and everyone checked. Everyone checked again when another {6-} hit the turn. However, when the river came a {K-}, the big blind led out for a near pot-sized bet. Obrestad thought for a bit, but made the call. Her opponent tabled ace-high and Obrestad revealed an {A-}{K-} for top pair, which was good enough to scoop the pot.

Obrestad currently sits just above 14,000.
