Obrestad Under Immediate Pressure

Anatoly Gurtovoy raised to 7,600 in the cutoff and Annette Obrestad defended her small blind. The flop was {6-Diamonds} {5-Spades} {2-Diamonds} and the action went very quickly. Obrestad checked, Gurtovoy bet 15,000 and Obrestad called. On the turn we saw the {4-Clubs} and again it was a quick tempo as Obrestad tapped the felt before Gurtovoy immediately bet 30,000. For the first time,Obrestad slowed the pace right down, and pondered her decision before calling. Finally we saw the {J-Clubs} and it was a case of dejavu. Obrestad quickly tapped the felt and Gurtovoy immediately announced, "all-in". If Obrestad called and was wrong - she was out. She thought for a very long time before eventually folding her hand.
