Fix Attention on Annie Duke

Annie Duke mightn’t have won her first WSOP Bracelet until ‘04 but she remains one of the most feared poker players at the ring matches at The Bellagio in sin city. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP bracelet came with a win at the "buried game" of Omaha hi/low.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy following a big win at the tournament, Annie goes back home to be "mom" to her 4 kids. She was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker competitors. If you don’t accept that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who coached her how to play the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small change girl and has captured her share of difficult tables, which includes knocking out Howard a few times along the way. They are both competitors that have the capability to capture the huge money and do so with a grin.

Annie Duke is a tough competitor at any table because she is a genuine poker player, but it is a little more than just being great at the game. Annie is extremely smart and graduated from Columbia University where she double majored in English and Psychology.

When you sit across from her at the poker table you will see she is there to compete in the game and she starts "sizing" you up from the time you approach the table. If you can not gamble like a camp, then do not bother.

Winning over three million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie Duke branched out to become a adviser to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to enhance his techniques and grow into a force at the tables.

You will likely glimpse her at the Bellagio, you’ll observe her on TV and you may even compete against her in an online poker match, but don’t anticipate a simple win. Unless you’re a camp-in-the-making, you won’t defeat her. Although, it’d be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
