Concentrate on Annie Duke


Annie Duke mightn’t have attained her first WSOP Bracelet until two thousand and four but she is still one of the most feared poker players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Vegas. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP win came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "young crowd" of poker run wild after a huge success at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mum" to her four kids. She hails from New Hampshire and was raised into a family of poker players. If you don’t believe that, watch her sibling, Howard Lederer, in action, Howard taught her how-to play poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small fry kind of girl and has won her share of challenging tables, including knocking out Howard a few times on several occasions.

Winning over $3 million in tournament play, Annie became a advisor to both UltimateBet.com and actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to sharpen his abilities and become a power player in poker.

You might just notice Annie at the Bellagio, you will catch her on television and you may even play against her in a net poker game, but do not bank on a simple win. Unless you’re a champion-in-the-making, you’ll not defeat her. although, it is likely to be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
