Focus Attention on Annie Duke

Annie Duke mightn’t have captured her first WSOP Bracelet until two thousand and four but she is still one of the most feared poker players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-awaited WSOP bracelet came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "young crowd" of poker go berserk after a huge win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mommy" to her 4 children. She hails from NH and was raised into a family of poker players. If you don’t accept that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught Annie the correct way to play poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small fry kind of girl and has earned her cut of challenging matches, which includes eliminating Howard along the way on numerous occasions.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a advisor to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to build up his skills to become a power player at the poker table.

You may catch Annie at the Bellagio, you’ll catch her on the tv and you may even compete with her in an online poker match, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you are a up and coming master, you will not beat her. although, it would be cool to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
