Obrestad joins LockPro Elite

Online poker domain Lock Poker has added 2007 WSOPE champion to its squad of sponsored professionals.

Friday 27th April 2012

The winner of the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) tournament, Annette Obrestad, has joined the LockPro Elite squad of sponsored professionals from online poker site Lock Poker. After three small cashes in the European Poker Tour and Irish Poker Open preliminary events, the Norwegian burst onto the international poker scene in 2007 by besting over 360 other competitors to win the WSOPE tournament in London the day before her 19th birthday. “Annette is an exceptional person and player,” said Jennifer Larson, Chief Executive Officer for Lock Poker. “She takes Lock Poker 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 Poker has taken the poker world into a new era where the player reigns. Partnering with our pros is the only path to greatness.” Lock Poker launched its online poker room just over four years ago and recently debuted a new online casino offering. It stated that it was the first online poker site to introduce a Mac download casino, Sharkscope integration, live statistics and a custom hand re-player while 2009 saw it appoint respected professional player Eric ‘Rizen’ Lynch as Poker Room Manager. “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,” said the now 23-year-old. “Being part of Lock Poker is something I'm really excited about and it will be a great beginning of a new exciting relationship. Lock Poker 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.”
