The Mainstream Celebrity

Published on Oct 23rd, 2007

This week's Podcast featured interviews with Annette "Annette_15" Obrestad and Andy "BKiCe" Seth.

The inaugural World Series of Poker Europe Main Event took place in London in September of this year, with professional and amateurs from around the world competing for a first place prize of over $2 million US Dollars. When the dust had settled, online superstar Annette Obrestad had captured the title... not bad for a teenager!

Annette has a professional poker player's schedule that rivals that of today's household names. With interviews, photo shoots, autograph signings (and yes, quite a bit of poker too), stardom is an enormous responsibility that requires sacrifices if a player truly wants to win over the hearts of millions of poker players. Annette just might have what it takes to be a successful tournament player AND a successful celebrity!

Andy "BKiCe" Seth is a Senior at the University of Illinois majoring in Finance. He was removed from regular grade school at the age of 12 and placed into the University Laboratory High School for gifted kids, and has flourished ever since. In his interview, "BKiCe" talks about his plans from now until graduation in May 2008, along with his plans to spend time in Vegas afterwards.
