Concentrate on Annie Duke

[ English ]

Annie Duke mightn’t have came away with her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but she is still one of the most powerful poker players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-awaited WSOP win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy after a huge win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mum" to her 4 children. She was born in New Hampshire and was raised into a family of card players. If you do not believe that, have a look at her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught Annie how to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has won her cut of hard tables, including eliminating Howard a few times on several occasions.

Earning over $3 million in tournament action, Annie branched out to become a advisor to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to build up his abilities and become a force in poker.

You may observe her at the Bellagio, you will catch her on the television and you may even play against her in a net poker match, but don’t bank on an easy win. Unless you are a up and coming master, you will not beat her. although, it would be cool to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
