I think her results speak for themselves.
being a great MTT player and a great cash game player take pretty different skill sets. there are a number of different dynamics, and different people excel at different aspects of poker. experience is also obviously a factor, and annette's experience (like, say, chris ferguson) has primarily come in tournaments.
that being said, i think annette could win at the big cash games, if not now, then with experience, just because she's so fundamentally good at poker and she knows how to make adjustments. it's just not her preference and likely not as good a fit for her as MTTs, given the skill set she excels at
she did get quite lucky to win the WSOPE, but who doesn't get lucky to win a tournament? one highlight very late in the tournament: she had QJ vs JJ, all in for her tournament life, rivered a Q.
