• Concentrate on Annie Duke

    Annie Duke might not have captured her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until ‘04 but she remains one of the most feared poker competitors at the cash matches at The Bellagio in vegas. Annie’s longawaited WSOP bracelet came with success at the "cast aside game" of Omaha hi-low.

    While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker run wild after a huge win at the tournament, Annie heads back home to be "mom" to her 4 kids. Annie was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker competitors. If you don’t believe that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who taught her how to gamble on the game.

    However, Mrs. Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has won her cut of hard tables, which includes knocking out Howard a few times along the way. They are both competitors that have the ability to acquire the large money and do it with a grin.

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

    When you take a seat across from her at the poker table you’ll see Annie is there to compete in the game and she starts "summing" you up as soon as you approach the game table. If you cannot bet like a Champion, then do not waste your time.

    Acquiring over three million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie Duke branched out to become a consultant to both the UltimateBet website and actor Ben Affleck, who was looking to sharpen his skills and develop into a force at the tables.

    You may catch a glimpse of her at the Bellagio, you’ll notice Annie on the television and you may even compete against her in an internet poker game, but do not expect a simple win. Unless you’re a champion-in-the-making, you will not beat her. Although, it’d be exciting to say you played at the at the table with "The Duke".
