Concentrate on Annie Duke

Annie Duke may not have won her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but she is one of the most feared poker competitors around the ring games at The Bellagio in Vegas. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy after a big success at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mum" to her four children. She was born in New Hampshire and was raised into a family of poker players. If you don’t believe that, have a look at her brother, Howard Lederer, in action, Howard taught Annie the best method to play the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has won her share of difficult games, which includes eliminating Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Winning over 3 million dollars in tournament action, Annie became a consultant to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to develop his techniques and become a force in poker.

You may catch her at the Bellagio, you will see her on television and you might just even play with her in a web poker match, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you are 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".
