Annette Obrestad Joins Lock Poker

Norwegian poker pro Annette Obrestad has become the latest member of Lock Poker‘s “Elite” stable of stars, joining the likes of Chris Moorman, Matt Stout, Kevin Vandersmissen and Melanie Weisner. The 23 year old has spoken of her excitement at the new deal with the player friendly poker site.

Obrestad said, “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.”

“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,” continued the 23 year old Norwegian.

Annette Obrestad is undoubtedly a significant addition to the Lock Poker stable of professionals, which already boasts the likes of 2012 Irish Open winner Kevin Vandersmissen, Chris Moorman and Matt Stout. Obrestad became the youngest ever winner of a World Series of Poker tournament when she landed the £1 million prize in the Main Event of the 2007 WSOP Europe just days before her 19th birthday, and she has already banked more than $3.7 million from live poker tournament play.

Lock Poker CEO Jennifer Larson had the following to say about their latest coup: “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. 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!”

All new Lock Poker players qualify for a welcome bonus of 150% up to $750, as well as an exclusive new depositor freeroll tournament.

Obrestad had formerly been employed by Full Tilt Poker, who look set to be bought by old rivals PokerStars.
