Focus Attention on Annie Duke

[ English ]

Annie Duke may not have came away with her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 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 competitors from the "young crowd" of poker go berserk after a big win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her 4 kids. She was born in NH and was raised into a family of poker players. If you do not believe that, have a look at her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught Annie the correct way to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small fry kind of girl and has captured her cut of hard tables, which includes eliminating Howard a few times on several occasions.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament play, Annie became a advisor to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his skills to become a big player at the poker table.

You might just notice Annie at the Bellagio, you will see her on the tv and you might just even play against her in a web-based poker game, but do not expect an easy win. Unless you are a rising star, you’ll not defeat her. However, it would be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
