Focus Attention on Annie Duke

Mrs. Duke may not have won her first WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but she is one of the most powerful poker competitors around the ring games at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s longawaited WSOP bracelet came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha hi-low.

While competitors from the "younger crowd" of poker run crazy after a big win at the tables, Annie goes home and becomes "mom" to her 4 kids. Annie was born in New Hampshire into a family of poker competitors. If you don’t accept that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to participate in the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has succeeded at her cut of hard tables, which includes knocking out Howard a few times along the way. They’re both competitors that have the ability to capture the huge $$$$$ and do it with a smile.

Annie Duke is a strong player at any table due to the fact that she is a natural poker player, but it is a little more than simply being great at the game. Mrs. Duke is very smart and graduated from Columbia University where she double majored in Psychology and English.

When you sit across from Annie at the poker table you know Annie is there to compete in the game and she begins "summing" you up as soon as you sit down at the poker table. If you can’t gamble like a Champion, then do not waste your time.

Acquiring over $3 million in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both and actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to enhance his talents and become a force at the tables.

You might just see her at the Bellagio, you will observe Annie on television and you might even play against her in a net poker match, but don’t expect an easy win. Except of course you’re a champion-in-the-making, you won’t beat her. Although, it’d be exciting to mention you played at the at the table with "The Duke".
