Annette Obrestad can do no wrong, at least for now.
We walked by just as Obrestad scooped a small pot after value-betting with aces. In the very next hand, Obrestad raised to 300 from under-the-gun and was called by both the blinds. The flop came and everyone checked. Everyone checked again when another hit the turn. However, when the river came a , the big blind led out for a near pot-sized bet. Obrestad thought for a bit, but made the call. Her opponent tabled ace-high and Obrestad revealed an for top pair, which was good enough to scoop the pot.
Obrestad currently sits just above 14,000.
