Annette Ascends to 2.65 Million

Annette Obrestad

Sergio Castelluccio min-raised to 40,000 from middle position, Annette Obrestad three-bet to 110,000 from late position, and Castelluccio called to see a flop of {K-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. Castelluccio checked, Obrestad bet 130,000, and Castelluccio called. He checked again on the {4-Diamonds} turn, and Obrestad meticulously cut out 275,00 from her stack and placed it in the pot. Castelluccio stared her down for a couple minutes before matching her bet, and suddenly there was more than a million in the pot.

The river was the {Q-Diamonds} and once again Castelluccio checked. Obrestad pushed out a stack of green T25,000 chips from her stack, totaling 500,000. Castelluccio sat in the tank for another two minutes, and this time gave it up. Obrestad now sits at 2.65 million and has climbed back into the top 10.
