Fix Attention on Annie Duke

Annie Duke mightn’t have earned her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but she is still one of the most feared poker players around the cash games at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s longawaited World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "cast aside game" of Omaha high-low.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker go wild after a big win at the tables, Annie goes back home and becomes "mom" to her four kids. Annie grew up in New Hampshire into a family of card competitors. If you do not accept that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to compete in the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has succeeded at her share of challenging tables, including eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They’re both competitors that have the ability to win the large cash and do so with a smile.

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

When you sit across from her at the poker table you’ll see Annie is there to compete in the game and she starts "summing" you up from the time you sit down at the table. If you cannot wager like a Champion, then don’t waste your time.

Winning over 3 million dollars in tournament competitions, Mrs. Duke became a consultant to both and actor Ben Affleck, who was looking to enhance his skills and develop into a force at the tables.

You will likely see her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely notice her on TV and you might even play against her in a web-based poker game, but do not anticipate an easy win. Except of course you are a champion-in-the-making, you won’t beat her. However, it would be exciting to mention you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
