A look at Annette's blind win tourney
A forum poster recently asked how Annette could have won a 180-player online tournament without looking at her cards.
"With a Post-it Note", came the amusing and only response.
It was probably not the answer the poster was looking for and they were just marvelling in the fact Annette could win a tourney without looking at her hand in her hole cards.
She has since explained that it was an exercise in the importance of playing in position and the videos below shows how she demonstrated this as she folds KK in the first few hands.
Speaking about why she did 180-player tournament blind challenge she said. "To show just how important it is to play position and to pay attention to the players at the table. Like, if you knew that someone was weak you'd attack them."
"I've not looked before. When I used to play $30, $40, or $50 sit-and-gos I did it all the time. I dropped down to lower levels just to practice, but I didn't take it seriously enough."
"This was the first time I'd done it in a while. I really just did it for fun, and that's why I peeked on one hand; I didn't think I was going to take it seriously enough."
"But when I got deeper, I wanted to win without looking to show everyone that it was possible."
