Focus Attention on Annie Duke

Annie Duke mightn’t have attained her first WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but she remains one of the most feared poker competitors around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Sin City. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker run wild following a huge success at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mum" to her four kids. She hails from New Hampshire and was raised into a family of card players. If you do not accept that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught her how-to compete in the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has won her share of difficult tables, which includes knocking out Howard along the way on numerous occasions.

Earning well over 3 million dollars in tournament action, Annie branched out to become a advisor to both UltimateBet and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to sharpen his skills and become a force in poker.

You might encounter her at the Bellagio, you’ll see her on television and you might just even compete with her in a web-based poker game, but don’t count on a simple win. Unless you’re a up and coming master, you won’t defeat her. although, it would be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
