"Annette_15" headed into the final table on Wednesday with the third largest chip stack, but soon found herself the dominant chip leader in the tournament. After that, the outcome was never really in doubt, as Obrestad systematically dispatched of her opponents one after the other.

The heads up "battle" between Obrestad and Billy Seri didn't last very long at all. Annette entered heads up play with a massive chip lead, and ended up needing only three hands to send Billy Seri to the rail in second place.

The final hand of the tournament came when Seri and Obrestad got all-in pre-flop holding:

Seri - Kh-8d-Jc-9h
Obrestad - Kc-Jd-Jh-2s

The board came Ac-9c-Ah-2c-10c, eliminating Seri in second place and giving Annette Obrestad yet another tournament victory.

Annette Obrestad closed out the tournament in dominating fashion, eliminating five of her eight opponents at the final table.

With her victory on Wednesday, Obrestad now has just under $2.9 million dollars in lifetime "live" tournament earnings. Her largest cash came in the 2007 WSOPE main event, which she ended up taking down for just over $2 million USD.
