Fix Attention on Annie Duke

Mrs. Duke may not have captured her 1st WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but she is one of the most feared poker competitors around the cash matches at The Bellagio in vegas. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP bracelet came with a win at the "buried game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy following a big win at the tables, Annie heads home and becomes "mom" to her 4 children. She grew up in New Hampshire into a family of poker players. If you do not believe that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to compete in the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has succeeded at her cut of demanding tables, which includes knocking out Howard along the way on a couple of occasions. They’re both players that have the capability to acquire the big bucks and do it with a grin.

Mrs. Duke is a tough competitor at any table due to the fact that she is a natural poker player, but it is a bit more than simply being great at the game. Annie is incredibly intelligent and graduated from Columbia U where she double majored in Psychology and English.

When you are seated across from Annie at the poker table you know she is there to play the game and she starts "summing" you up as soon as you join the table. If you cannot compete like a camp, then do not waste your time.

Acquiring over $3 million in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a adviser to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to sharpen his techniques and grow into a power at the poker table.

You may see her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely observe her on TV and you might even participate against her in a net poker game, but don’t anticipate a simple win. Except of course you’re a champion-in-the-making, you will not defeat her. However, it’d be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
