Annette Obrestad was yesterday beaten by Marijn Van Puffelen in the final of the €5,300 heads-up to claim the €37,830 first place prize. WSOPE winner Obrestad has had a pretty slow time on the live circuit over the last year but had a close miss at EPT London a couple of months back with a 23rd place finish for £17,500. That’s tournament poker for you.
