The Internet home of leading European poker magazine, BluffEurope.com, has announced its intentions to host a special freeroll competition that would see two of today’s top poker pros competing against any online poker player who is up to the challenge. On May 20, 2008, Annette Obrestad (Ã¢â‚¬ËœAnnette_15Ã¢â‚¬â„¢) and Sorel Mizzi (Ã¢â‚¬ËœImper1umÃ¢â‚¬â„¢) will put their skills to the test against the world.
Betfair.com has assisted in organizing the event and, as a sponsor of the special freeroll tournament, has added $1,500 to the prize pool. Both Annette Obrestad and Sorel Mizzi will be carrying a $250 bounty on their heads, awarded to any player who manages to send them to the rails. That brings the total prize pool up to $2,000.
Poker players who would like to take part in this extraordinary event can do so by registering at BluffEurope.com (registration link), using the code “BLUFF”. Once registered with the event’s sponsor, Betfair Poker, players will need to earn 10 Betfair Poker Points (equivalent to $1 rake). The player will then be qualified to participate, and pre-registered for the upcoming tournament.
Annette Obrestad is a phenomenal poker player who, at the age of 19, took down the first annual World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE), pocketing a cool million. With this victory, Obrestad became the youngest player to ever win the coveted Bracelet. Before her fateful WSOPE triumph, Annette gained fame among the online poker community, under her username ‘Annette_15’, for winning a poker tournament without once peaking at her hole cards.
Sorel Mizzi, at the ripe age of 21, has carved his name into the formidable list of ‘most feared opponents’ in the world of online poker. From his hometown of Toronto, Mizzi has earned himself more than $500,000 playing at the popular online poker room, PokerStars. Under his revered handle, Ã¢â‚¬ËœImper1umÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Sorel Mizzi has taken down the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up, worth $80k, along with a host of other fierce, multi-table tournaments.
