Annette Obrestad Attacks Doyle Brunson And Women Poker Players

Annette Obrestad Attacks Doyle Brunson And Women Poker PlayersOutspoken young Norweigan pro Annette Obrestad has been busy this week letting her views known on a whole range of subjects, with Doyle Brunson and women poker players firmly in her line of fire.
The 21 year-old, known as “Annette_15” online, was appearing in an interview for ESPN, when the subject of women in poker inevitably came up. Far from trying to encourage her fellow females in their poker pursuits or draw attention to the truly great women players in the game, Annette instead took the opportunity to take a swipe at them while ‘bigging’ herself up.
“It’s easy money… I’ve always said that girls suck at poker.” She said. “I say that because they do. Maybe they just aren’t as competitive and don’t try to learn from their mistakes.”
Obrestad obviously wasn’t familiar with such players as Vanessa Rousso, Jennifer Harman, Annie Duke, Isabelle Mercier and Clonie Gowen. Not to mention WSOP bracelet winner Kathy Liebert, who with more than $5,600,000 in live tournament cashes is the most successful female player in history.
One player she has heard of, though, is 10 times WSOP bracelet winner and poker legend Doyle Brunson. The ‘Poker Hall of Fame’ inductee, with two poker hands named after him,  has written many influential books on poker strategies over the decades and been instrumental in inspiring countless generations of poker fans.
Obrestad decided to brush all that aside and instead aired her view that the 76 year old Doyle would now not be able to hold a torch to the new breed of online players. As she explains:
“Online players process information so much faster and don’t let their egos get in the way of becoming a better player. No disrespect to Doyle, but I’d rather play him.”
Despite being older and now able to play in her first US World Series of Poker event this year, Annette Obrestad has demonstrated she has still far to go and is clearly lacking the dignity, maturity and respect that are the hallmarks of a true champion of the game.
