Focus on Annie Duke

Mrs. Duke might not have captured her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but she is still one of the most powerful poker competitors around the ring games at The Bellagio in vegas. Annie’s longawaited World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "cast aside game" of Omaha hi-low.

While players from the "younger crowd" of poker go wild following a large win at the tournament, Annie goes back home and becomes "mom" to her 4 kids. She was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker competitors. If you don’t believe that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who taught her how to play the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has captured her cut of hard tables, which includes eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They are both competitors that have the skill to win the big money and do it with a grin.

Annie Duke is a strong competitor at any poker table due to the fact that she is a legitimate poker player, but it’s a bit more than just being good at the game. Annie Duke is extremely intelligent and graduated from Columbia U where she double majored in English and Psychology.

When you are seated across from her at the table you will see she is there to play the game and she begins "sizing" you up as soon as you sit down at the poker table. If you can not wager like a Champion, then do not waste your time.

Winning over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Annie Duke became a adviser to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to enhance his talents and grow into a power at the poker table.

You will likely glimpse her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely observe Annie on TV and you might even participate against her in a net poker match, but do not expect a simple win. Except of course you are a camp-in-the-making, you will not defeat her. Although, it would be fun to mention you sat at the at the table with "The Duke".
