Personal Life

Annette was born on September 18, 1988 in Norway. Her youth was spent with a heavy concentration on education, but her fondness for competition led her to study bowling. But as she watched bowling on television, she saw an advertisement for an online poker site, where she started in free money games, won a freeroll tournament for real money, and therefore began her poker career at a very young age.

Tournaments

Between September 2006 and February 2007, she won over $500,000 on Pokerstars.com, $200,000 on UltimateBet.com, and $136,000 on FullTiltPoker.com. On September 17, 2007 Annette won the inaugural World Series of Poker Europe Main Event the day before her 19th birthday by winning the one million-pound sterling (US$2.01 million at the time of the event) first prize. As of February 2008, Pocketfives.com, a site that tracks online poker, ranks her number 51. She also has been the site's top-ranked player in the past. In July 2007, Annette won a $4 buy-in 180 person online Sit n Go. On June 8, 2008, she won first place and $35,000 in the Betfair Sunday $125k Guaranteed Event. In December 2008, she won first place in the Ultimate Bet $100k GTD tournament. In May 2010, she won the Sunday 500 for $87,400.With over $3 million accumulated in live events to date, Annette signed with Full Tilt Poker in early 2010 as one of the members of its elite top-tier team, just months before preparing to play her first WSOP in Las Vegas since turning 21.

Terms of Use

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
