Full Tilt Welcomes another Team Member


Full Tilt Poker

Annette Obrestad, a Norwegian poker pro has become the newest addition to the Full Tilt Poker Team. Full Tilt has been watching her for some time now has finally managed to secure a sponsorship agreement with Obrestad. This deal was finally reached on May 1st and Full Tilt seems to be pleased with their decision. Previously Obrestad was being sponsored by Betfair Poker. This is an online poker site which is smaller than Full Tilt and they managed to work out a deal with her after her WSOP Europe win that took place in 2007. She found herself in the position of needing to wait a few years before she was able to switch her sponsors. However, Obrestad seems to be satisfied with the change.

Obrestad feels good about her decision to go with Full Tilt

When asked about how she felt about the sponsorship Obrestad said that she was very excited about joining Full Tilt. She also said that full Tilt has been her favorite poker room for years and that she is proud to be a part of such a great group of poker players. Another amazing thing about this poker player is that she is just 21 years of age. In just two years alone she made more than 800,000 in online winnings for herself. She is known online by the username of Annette_15. This is definitely one poker player that everyone will want to keep their eye on and Full Tilt is lucky to have her as a part of their team.

Obrestad seems to have pure poker talent

This poker player is one player that seems to have a natural talent and full Tilt is no doubt excited that she has made the decision to bring that talent to their online poker site. That talent seemed to translate perfectly to live events. In 2007 she won the inaugural WSOP Europe Main Event for $1 million. Showing no signs of slowing down her total live tournament winnings today sit at well over $3 million putting her easily atop the Norway's live tournament all– time money list. Despite a number of big wins, Obrestad has been too young to compete in American version of the WSOP up until this year. She now looks forward to sporting her new Full Tilt Poker gear and taking the action to the felt. "You have no idea how long I've been waiting for the World Series of Poker. Well, pretty much three years. And I've been in Vegas every year watching my friends play, hearing about how bad the players are. It was terrible!" she said. Now the wait is over and I'm sure both she and Full Tilt Poker are very happy with their arrangement.
