Focus Attention on Annie Duke

by Carmelo on December 12th, 2010

Annie Duke may not have attained her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but she is one of the most feared poker competitors around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Sin City. Annie’s long-awaited World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker run amok following a big win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her four children. She was born in New Hampshire and was raised into a family of poker players. If you do not believe that, have a look at her sibling, Howard Lederer, in action, Howard taught Annie the best method to play the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has captured her cut of challenging matches, which includes eliminating Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

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

You may observe her at the Bellagio, you will see her on the television and you might even play with her in an internet poker match, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you are a rising star, you will not defeat her. although, it would be cool to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
