Concentrate on Annie Duke

Mrs. Duke may not have captured her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but she is still one of the most feared poker competitors around the cash games at The Bellagio in sin city. Annie’s longawaited World Series of Poker bracelet came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha high-low.

While players from the "younger crowd" of poker run wild after a big win at the tournament, Annie heads home to be "mom" to her 4 children. Annie was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker players. If you do not accept that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who coached her how to bet on the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has captured her cut of challenging tables, including eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They’re both competitors that have the skill to acquire the big money and do it with a smile.

Annie Duke is a tough player at any poker table due to the fact that she is a natural poker player, but it’s a little more than just being great at the game. Annie Duke is extremely intelligent and graduated from Columbia U where she took a double major in Psychology and English.

When you take a seat across from her at the poker table you know she is there to compete in the game and she begins "sizing" you up as soon as you join the poker table. If you cannot play like a camp, then don’t waste your time.

Earning over 3 million dollars in tournament competitions, Mrs. Duke branched out to become a adviser to both and actor Ben Affleck, who wished to enhance his skills and develop into a force at the poker table.

You might catch a glimpse of her at the Bellagio, you’ll notice Annie on the television and you may even play against her in a cyber poker match, but don’t expect an easy win. Except of course you are a camp-in-the-making, you’ll not beat her. Although, it’d be fun to mention you played at the same table as "The Duke".
