Full Tilt Poker has announced a huge signing a couple months before the World Series of Poker, Annette Obrestad, who made a name for herself in the online poker world under the screen-name Annette15. Obrestad was a poker superstar before her 18th birthday, and the now 21 year-old is finally able to participate in tournaments in the United States.

Obrestad will make her official Full Tilt Poker debut as she hosts the $640 FTOPS XVI main event on May 2nd. And of course she’ll be wearing the Full Tilt patch at her first WSOP tournament this summer.

In addition to her online poker accomplishments, Obrestad won £1,000,000 (over $2,000,000) by winning the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event. She was able to capture the title a day before she turned 19, becoming the youngest person in history to hold a WSOP bracelet.

The signing by Full Tilt Poker comes as no surprise, with over $3,000,000 in career tournament earnings at the age of 21 it’s likely you’ll be hearing a lot from Annette in the coming years, considering she can compete in the lucrative tournaments at the World Series of Poker and across the United States.
