Re: Whatever happened to Annette obrestad?

Just another online nerd that Phiil Hellmuth has outlasted. Phil makes a good point when he criticizes online nerds for lack of people skills.

Instead of making jealous criticisms about Hellmuth, people should learn from him. Durrr down. Obrestad down. Who's next?

Hellmuth and Negreanu still on top putting the GTO folks to shame. There is wisdom in white magic and Choice Center. When will keyboard warriors ever learn.

Re: Whatever happened to Annette obrestad?

As you mock keyboard warriors, while calling lots of people nerds with your keyboard, one suggestion I have is that you should better classify the nerds. Are they any of the following:

- Nerds as stated by Homer Simpson

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRsPheErBj8

- Nerds as stated by Fonzie

- Nerds as stated by Ogre in the 80s movies.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZVdR19E5mU


Also, keep in mind that currently nerds are on trend and are often called Hipsters. Hope that helps you with your people skills, Grandpa, and in future may all nerds/hipsters stay off of your lawn.


All the best.

Agreed she's a good kid, who ever can win a 180 entrant tourney online without looking at cards is an incredible feat. If I recall correctly. WSOPE main event title great accomplishments both online and on felt.

You might want to expand your reading to include stories about Annette defending multi-accounting and her association with Lock Poker.

Re: Whatever happened to Annette obrestad?

She must want out of the spotlight now. No twitter updates in 2015 and no updates on her fb page in 2015. She had a couple small cashes but other than that I think she is probably just laying low.

Re: Whatever happened to Annette obrestad?

As others mentioned she was at the WSOP this year. Is she still with Scott Montgomery? I sat next to him in the WPT 500 at Aria and didn't have the heart (or commitment) to ask..... Annette crushes.

Not really. How strong was the field? Was the blind structure a crapshoot? How many flips did she win? And how many tournaments did she actually play before she succeeded?

People see a Scandinavian LAG fish achieve some success and attribute it to pure skill. The truth of the matter is, for every successful Scandinavian LAG fish there are thousands of busto Scandinavian LAG fish of similar ability. It's just a matter of variance and outliers. Eventually they regress to the mean.
