Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Annette Flips a Coin, Heads Out

• Nível 13: 1,200-2,400, 300 ante
Annette Obrestad

In late position, Annette Obrestad opened the pot with a raise, and Russell Thomas shoved in enough chips to cover her from the big blind. Obrestad had around 60,000, and she called all in with {A-Diamonds} {J-Hearts}. Thomas tabled {10-Clubs} {10-Spades}, and his two black tens were racing for the knockout.

They'd get it. The board rolled out {K-Spades} {5-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} {3-Diamonds} {5-Clubs}, and the pair holds to send Obrestad packing. The Norwegian starlet has one Main Event title under her belt already, but a second shot at that title one will have to wait until the Series heads to Cannes for the European leg this fall.

With the knockout, Thomas climbs to within smelling distance of a half-million chips, sitting with 497,000 by our count.
