Annette Obrestad, JC Tran in final two Event #39 tables

Wednesday, 23 June 2010

Despite what many have claimed to be a disappointing WSOP for Annette “Annette_15” Obrestad, the recently-turned-21-year-old WSOPE champion is making up ground with a deep run in Event #39, the $1,500 NL Shootout.

Obrestad, who dominated online tournaments for years before becoming a household poker name with her hyper-aggressive win over the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe in 2007, is guaranteed $6,940 for her efforts thus far but will be looking ahead to the first prize of $381,922 and her second WSOP bracelet.

Also joining her in the final two seven-handed tables is JC Tran, hand reader extraordinaire. Each player at both tables will begin tomorrow’s play with 450,000 in chips while each player who makes the final table will be guaranteed at least $40,887 with the top four spots being paid out over $100,000.

Check back here at this time tomorrow to see if Annette or JC Tran can claim another WSOP bracelet or if another amateur player clinches the glitter.
