Concentrate on Annie Duke

[ English ]

Annie Duke mightn’t have attained her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but Annie is one of the most powerful poker players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Sin City. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker run amok after a huge win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her four kids. She was born in New Hampshire and was raised into a family of card players. If you don’t believe that, observe her sibling, Howard Lederer, in action, who taught Annie the correct way to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small change girl and has captured her cut of challenging tables, which includes knocking out Howard a few times on several occasions.

Winning over $3 million in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a advisor to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to build up his abilities to become a big player in poker.

You may catch her at the Bellagio, you’ll see her on the television and you may even play against her in an online poker match, but don’t bank on an easy win. Unless you are a up and coming master, you’ll not beat her. although, it is likely to be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
