Concentrate on Annie Duke

Mrs. Duke mightn’t have won her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but she is one of the most feared poker players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in vegas. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP bracelet came with a win at the "buried game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger crowd" of poker run crazy following a huge win at the tournament, Annie heads home and becomes "mom" to her 4 kids. Annie was born in New Hampshire into a family of poker competitors. If you do not accept that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to compete in the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has captured her cut of demanding tables, including knocking out Howard a few times along the way. They are both competitors that have the ability to capture the large $$$$$ and do so with a smile.

Annie Duke is a tough player at any poker table because she is a legitimate poker player, but it is a bit more than simply being great at the game. Annie is very smart and graduated from Columbia University where she double majored in English and Psychology.

When you are seated across from Annie at the poker table you know Annie is there to play the game and she starts "summing" you up as soon as you join the poker table. If you can not play like a Champion, then do not bother.

Earning over 3 million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie became a consultant to both and actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to hone his talents and become a power at the tables.

You will likely see her at the Bellagio, you will notice Annie on the television and you might even participate against her in a web poker game, but don’t count on an easy win. Except of course you are a champion-in-the-making, you will not beat her. Although, it’d be fun to mention you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
