Bluff Europe hits newstands

1 October 2007
LONDON, England -- (PRESS RELEASE) -– October's issue of Bluff Europe hits UK newsstands today featuring an exclusive interview with cover star, teenage poker sensation Annette Obrestad.

Baby Face assassin Annette Obrestad is the poker phenomenon that took the world by storm when she became the first woman and youngest poker player ever to win a Main Event at the World Series of Poker.

The Norwegian player fought off some of the best players in the world who'd congregated in London for the £10,000 buy-in, 6-day tournament. To celebrate, Bluff Europe has a series of interview outtakes which it is releasing in the lead up to the exclusive full post-win interview in Bluff Europe Magazine's October Issue.

Eighteen-year-old Obrestad (who turned 19 two days after the main event finished), beat 362 runners to win £1,000,000 ($2 million) and the coveted WSOPE gold bracelet. Best recognised by her online handle, Annette_15, Annette tells all in an emotionally charged interview held moments after winning the poker world's highest honour, and its £1 million cash prize.

As well as the exclusive with Annette Obrestad, October's issue of Bluff Europe features an in-depth review of the WSOPE plus a look at the 1st event on the PokerStars.com EPT calendar in Barcelona. Plus there are interviews with the Brunson family who travelled en mass to England for the World Series festivities and we run down the ten greatest bluffs of all time. And of course there's the usual top-quality news, reviews and features including regular columns from Jennifer Tilly and Phil Laak.

"We're proud to have this exclusive front cover with Annette," said Bluff Europe editor-in-chief Michael Caselli. "At 18, she is certain to set the poker world alight in the years to come. We hope our readers enjoy our in-depth interview with her."

Interview Outtake #4 - Annette on her maths skills:

"I suck at maths! It's not that big a part of the game really."

Interview Outtake #5 – Annette on winning the WSOPE:

"I don't think I've realised just how big it really is. It's huge! Winning this has broken so many records, and I don't think anyone will ever beat them."
