Concentrate on Annie Duke

Annie Duke mightn’t have earned her 1st WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but she is one of the most feared poker competitors at the cash games at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s longawaited World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "buried game" of Omaha hi low.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker run crazy following a large win at the tables, Annie goes home and becomes "mom" to her four kids. She was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker players. If you don’t believe that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who coached her how to compete in the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has succeeded at her share of hard tables, which includes eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They are both players that have the capability to acquire the large money and do it with a grin.

Mrs. Duke is a tough player at any table due to the fact that she is a true poker player, but it’s a little more than just being skilled at the game. Annie is surprisingly smart and graduated from Columbia University where she double majored in English and Psychology.

When you are seated across from her at the poker table you’ll see she is there to play the game and she begins "sizing" you up as soon as you approach the game table. If you can’t compete like a camp, then do not bother.

Winning over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Annie Duke became a adviser to both the UltimateBet website and actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to enhance his talents and become a force at the poker table.

You might just catch a glimpse of her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely notice her on television and you might even compete against her in an online poker game, but do not anticipate a simple win. Unless you are a camp-in-the-making, you’ll not beat her. Although, it would be fun to say you played at the at the table with "The Duke".
