Focus on Annie Duke

Annie Duke might not have won her first WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but Annie remains one of the most powerful poker players around the ring games at The Bellagio in Sin City. Annie’s long-overdue World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy following a huge win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mum" to her four kids. She hails from New Hampshire and was raised into a family of card players. If you don’t accept that, observe her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught Annie the best method to play the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has captured her share of difficult matches, which includes eliminating Howard along the way on numerous occasions.

Winning well over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Annie became a advisor to both UltimateBet and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to build up his skills to become a power player at the poker table.

You might observe her at the Bellagio, you’ll catch her on television and you might even compete against her in a web poker match, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you’re a up and coming master, you will not defeat her. although, it is likely to be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
