• Focus Attention on Annie Duke

    [ English ]

    Annie Duke may not have came away with her first WSOP Bracelet until two thousand and four but Annie 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 "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

    While players from the "young crowd" of poker go crazy following a big success at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her 4 children. She was born in New Hampshire and was raised into a family of poker players. If you do not accept that, watch her sibling, Howard Lederer, in action, who taught Annie the correct way to play poker.

    However, Annie Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has captured her share of hard games, which includes knocking out Howard along the way on several occasions.

    Winning over $3 million in tournament action, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to develop his abilities and become a big player in poker.

    You may catch Annie at the Bellagio, you’ll catch her on the tv and you may even compete with her in a net poker game, but don’t expect a simple win. Unless you’re a up and coming master, you will not defeat her. However, it would be cool to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
