Can she possibly do it again?
Can Annette "Annette_15" Obrestad, the teenaged poker phenom from Norway, take down another major poker event?
First she dominated the online poker world, pulling down over a million in online cashes.
Then, she decided to play live poker and she took down the World Series of Poker Europe main event.
And now, she is chipleader at the EPT Dublin, and has a great chance at winning the entire event.
Annette is currently sitting with a stack of 788k heading into the final day of play, which is good enough to be chipleader.
There are six Pokerstars qualifiers playing at the final table, so you would have to imagine that Annette plans on punishing these players, who are likely going to be focused on moving up the pay ladder as much as possible. Look for Annette to abuse these players with her big stack.
With Andy Black going out in tenth place, there are no real well-known players at the table besides Obrestad, so you would have to say that she is the clear favorite to win the event.
Considering she just turned 19 years old, it is scary to think about how much damage Obrestad will do over a long tournament poker career, especially when she is old enough to play in the World Series of Poker events.
