Concentrate on Annie Duke

[ English ]

Annie Duke may not have attained her first WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but Annie is still one of the most feared poker players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Sin City. Annie’s long-awaited World Series of Poker win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy after a big success at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mommy" to her four kids. She hails from NH and was raised into a family of card players. If you don’t accept that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught Annie how to play the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has earned her share of hard tables, including knocking out Howard a few times on several occasions.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament action, Annie branched out to become a advisor to both UltimateBet and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to develop his abilities and become a force in poker.

You may notice Annie at the Bellagio, you’ll see her on television and you might just even play against her in a web poker game, but do not expect an easy win. Unless you are a up and coming master, you’ll not defeat her. although, it is likely to be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
