Focus Attention on Annie Duke

[ English ]

Annie Duke may not have won her first WSOP Bracelet until two thousand and four but Annie is one of the most feared poker competitors around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-awaited WSOP win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker run amok after a big win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her 4 children. She was born in New Hampshire and grew up in a family of poker players. If you do not accept that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, who taught her the correct way to compete in poker.

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

Earning over 3 million dollars in tournament action, Annie branched out to become a advisor to both and actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to build up his abilities to become a power player in poker.

You might just observe her at the Bellagio, you will catch her on television and you might even play with her in a net poker game, but don’t count on a simple win. Unless you’re a up and coming master, you’ll not beat her. although, it would be cool to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
