Inaugural World Series of Poker Europe champion, Annette "Annette_15" Obrestad, has added $40,000 to her impressive resume of online and live tournament earnings after taking down Event 4 of the 2010 Aussie Millions.

The $1,100 Pot-Limit Omaha event drew 160 competitors with a first-place prize of $40,000 AUD. Annette arrived at the final table of nine third in chips, taking the chip lead shortly after play began and never looking back.
