Focus on Annie Duke

Annie Duke might not have captured her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but she remains one of the most feared poker players around the ring games at The Bellagio in Vegas. Annie’s long-overdue World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy after a big success at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her 4 kids. She hails from NH and was raised into a family of poker players. If you don’t believe that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, in action, Howard taught Annie the best method to play poker.

However, Annie Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has won her share of difficult games, including eliminating Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Winning well over three million dollars in tournament action, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both UltimateBet and actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to hone his skills to become a big player at the poker table.

You might just catch her at the Bellagio, you’ll catch her on TV and you might just even play with her in an online poker game, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you’re a up and coming master, you won’t beat her. However, it would be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
