London, UK – April 25th, 2012 – Lock Poker signs Annette "Annette_15" Obrestad! LockPRO taking the world by storm!
Lock is extremely excited to announce the new addition to their LockPRO ELITE team, Annette Obrestad.
Obrestad's overall career record is something that any poker player, male or female, would envy. Her illustrious online poker career started at the tender age of fifteen, where she played freerolls to build a bankroll, and continued through the legendary task of playing an entire tournament without looking at her hole cards. Thoroughly versed in her highly aggressive game, once Obrestad turned 18 she unleashed her talents on the live tournament poker world. Visit Lock Poker Now
The phenomenon known as "Annette_15" exploded on the poker scene in 2007. After three small cashes in the European Poker Tour and Irish Poker Open preliminary events, Obrestad came to London in August to tackle the first ever venture by the World Series of Poker outside the confines of the United States. In battling her way through the 362 player field to win the £1 million first place prize, Obrestad also was able to put her mark on a record that will probably never be broken as the youngest person ever to win a WSOP bracelet (days short of her 19th birthday).
"Annette is an exceptional person and player. She takes Lock to the next level. She is fierce in her passion, extraordinary in her talent and dedicated beyond most," says Jennifer Larson CEO of Lock Poker. "Players like Annette are the eyes into the soul of the game. We intend to integrate her into all aspects of the company. Lock has taken the Poker world into a new Era where the player reigns. Partnering with our Pros is the only path to greatness!"
"I'd heard amazing things about Lock Poker from all my friends and pros who play there, and I was thrilled when I got an offer from them," says Annette. "Being part of Lock is something I'm really excited about and it will be a great beginning of a new exciting relationship. Lock is the new generation of online poker where player experience drives the company with an incredible Pro team that I can hardly wait to work with."
"Poker Royalty is delighted to announce the new relationship between Lock Poker & Annette. Lock is making another bold statement with a marquee signing like Annette as they continue to build their incredible team of pros," says Jim Erwood.
