Fix Attention on Annie Duke

Annie Duke mightn’t have came away with her first WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but Annie is still one of the most powerful poker players around the ring games at The Bellagio in Sin City. Annie’s long-awaited WSOP bracelet came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy after a big win at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mommy" to her four kids. She was born in NH and grew up in a family of card players. If you do not accept that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, who taught her how-to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has captured her cut of challenging games, which includes eliminating Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to build up his skills to become a power player at the poker table.

You may catch Annie at the Bellagio, you’ll catch her on the tv and you might just even compete with her in a net poker game, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you’re a champion-in-the-making, you’ll not defeat her. However, it would be cool to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
