Annette Obrestad wins PokerStars Sunday 500

Tuesday, 25 May 2010

The PokerStars Sunday Majors enjoyed a week free of the Spring Championship of Online Poker before the WSOP kicks off. The latter must have been an influence on those wanting to practise their tournament game as all their Sunday tournaments saw a huge turnout.

The Sunday Warm-Up, for example, got a prize pool of over $800,000; way beyond the half a million guarantee. The only event in which the guarantee was not met was the Sunday 500, which fell just three players short of making up the cool $500k guarantee.

Didn’t bother Annette Obrestad, though, who beat the tough field to take a $87,400 victory. Obrestad, who turned 21 late last year, will be competing in the WSOP for the first time since her historic win at the inaugural WSOPE in 2007.

The full list of final table placings and payouts for the PokerStars Sunday 500 is as follows:

1. Annette "Annette_15" Obrestad - $87,400
2. Christian "charder30" Harder - $63,500
3. Joe "floes" Serock - $47,500
4. Martin "AABenjaminAA" Hruby - $35,500
5. Jason "jdtjpoker" Wheeler - $25,000
6. Brent "greener_tree" Belser - $20,000
7. seghei007 - $15,000
8. Harrison "gibler321" Gimbel - $10,000
9. Paul "PremiumStud" Dewald - $5,750
