Annette Obrestad Wins a 230,000 Pot Against Danny Schiff
Level 9: 600-1,200, 200 ante
Danny Schiff raises from the button to 3,000, Annette Obrestad reraises from the small blind to 10,000, and Schiff calls. The flop comes Q99, Obrestad bets 13,500, Schiff raises to 32,000, and Obrestad reraises to 68,500. Schiff calls, and there is already about 160,000 in the pot.
The turn card is the 7, and both players check. The river card is the 6, Obrestad checks, Schiff bets 35,000, and Obrestad calls. Schiff shows AJ for ace high with a missed flush draw, and Obrestad shows AQ to win the pot with two pair (queens and nines).
Obrestad was already chipleader, and this pot just moved her into an even more dominant position.
Annette Obrestad - 461,000 (384 bb)
Danny Schiff - 24,000 (20 bb)
After that hand, their table broke, with Annette Obrestad taking the seat to the immediate left of Mark Newhouse, who has been on a little hot streak of his own recently.
