Concentrate on Annie Duke

Annie Duke mightn’t have captured her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but she is still one of the most powerful poker competitors at the ring matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP bracelet came with success at the "buried game" of Omaha high-low.

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker go wild after a large win at the tournament, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her 4 kids. She was born in New Hampshire into a family of poker players. If you do not accept that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to gamble on the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has won her share of difficult tables, which includes eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They’re both competitors that have the capability to win the big money and do so with a grin.

Annie Duke is a tough player at any poker table because she is a genuine poker player, but it’s a bit more than just being skilled at the game. Annie Duke is incredibly intelligent and graduated from Columbia U where she took a double major in English and Psychology.

When you take a seat across from Annie at the poker table you’ll see Annie is there to play the game and she starts "sizing" you up from the time you approach the game table. If you can not gamble like a winner, then don’t waste your time.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie Duke became a consultant to both and actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to sharpen his talents and become a power at the tables.

You might glimpse her at the Bellagio, you’ll notice her on TV and you may even compete against her in a web poker game, but don’t count on an easy win. Except of course you’re a camp-in-the-making, you’ll not defeat her. Although, it’d be exciting to mention you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
