Rollercoaster Ride For Obrestad

Annette Obrestad
Annette Obrestad has taken a hit before quadrupling back up the next very hand to get herself back in the game.

In the first hand Obrestad had her opponent all in on a flop of {5-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Obrestad tabled {Q-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for top two pair as her opponent flipped {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}. The turn was the {7-Spades} and river the {2-Spades} to give her opponent a running flush to take the pot.

Obrestad was left with less than 2,000 in chips, which she committed the very next hand. After finding two callers, another player re-potted once again to drive out the callers and the two showed down their holdings:

Obrestad: {Q-Spades}{J-Spades}{7-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Opponent: {K-Hearts}{K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

The flop was kind to Obrestad as it fell {J-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} to give her two pair and the lead. The turn changed things around as the {A-Hearts} completed her opponent's flush and left Obrestad in trouble.

She was calling for a six but the {J-Diamonds} landed which was just as good, to give Obrestad a full house and a quadruple up to nearly 8,000 in chips.
