• Focus Attention on Annie Duke

    [ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

    Mrs. Duke may not have won her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until ‘04 but she is one of the most powerful poker players at the cash matches at The Bellagio in 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 crowd" of poker go crazy following a big win at the tables, Annie goes back home and becomes "mom" to her 4 kids. She was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker competitors. If you don’t accept that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to gamble on the game.

    However, Mrs. Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has won her cut of demanding tables, including eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They’re both competitors that have the capability to capture the large $$$$$ and do so with a smile.

    Mrs. Duke is a strong player at any table due to the fact that she is a real poker player, but it is a bit more than simply being good at the game. Mrs. Duke is surprisingly intelligent and graduated from Columbia University where she took a double major in Psychology and English.

    When you sit across from her at the table you will see Annie is there to compete in the game and she starts "sizing" you up as soon as you approach the table. If you cannot compete like a winner, then do not waste your time.

    Earning over three million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie Duke branched out to become a consultant to both UltimateBet.com and actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his talents and develop into a force at the tables.

    You will likely see her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely see Annie on the television and you might even participate against her in an on-line poker match, but don’t anticipate a simple win. Unless you are a champion-in-the-making, you’ll not beat her. Although, it would be fun to mention you played at the at the table with "The Duke".
