Fix Attention on Annie Duke

[ English ]

Annie Duke may not have earned her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but she is still one of the most powerful poker players at the ring games at The Bellagio in sin city. Annie’s long-overdue World Series of Poker bracelet came with a win at the "buried game" of Omaha hi low.

While players from the "younger crowd" of poker go wild after a big win at the tournament, Annie heads home and becomes "mom" to her four children. She was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker competitors. If you don’t accept that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who taught her how to gamble on the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small change girl and has won her cut of challenging tables, which includes knocking out Howard a few times along the way. They are both competitors that have the skill to win the huge cash and do so with a smile.

Mrs. Duke is a tough competitor at any table considering that she is a true poker player, but it is a little more than simply being great at the game. Annie Duke is incredibly smart and graduated from Columbia University where she took a double major in English and Psychology.

When you are seated across from Annie at the poker table you’ll see she is there to play the game and she starts "summing" you up from the time you join the table. If you can not wager like a winner, then don’t waste your time.

Acquiring over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a adviser to both the UltimateBet website and actor Ben Affleck, who wished to sharpen his talents and become a power at the tables.

You might just glimpse her at the Bellagio, you’ll notice her on television and you may even play against her in an online poker match, but don’t expect a simple win. Except of course you’re a camp-in-the-making, you will not beat her. Although, it would be fun to say you played at the at the table with "The Duke".
