Concentrate on Annie Duke

[ English ]

Mrs. Duke might not have won her 1st WSOP Bracelet until ‘04 but she is still one of the most powerful poker competitors at the live action matches at The Bellagio in sin city. Annie’s long-overdue World Series of Poker bracelet came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha high-low.

While competitors from the "younger crowd" of poker go crazy following a huge win at the tournament, Annie goes back home to be "mom" to her four kids. Annie grew up in New Hampshire into a family of poker players. If you don’t accept that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to wager on the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has captured her cut of difficult tables, including knocking out Howard a few times along the way. They are both players that have the ability to capture the large money and do so with a grin.

Annie is a tough player at any poker table because she is a natural poker player, but it’s a little more than simply being great at the game. Annie Duke is incredibly smart and graduated from Columbia University where she majored in English and Psychology.

When you are seated across from Annie at the table you know Annie is there to compete in the game and she starts "summing" you up as soon as you join the table. If you can’t wager like a camp, then don’t bother.

Acquiring over 3 million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie Duke became a adviser to both the UltimateBet poker room and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his abilities and grow into a power at the poker table.

You may see her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely see her on the television and you might even play against her in an internet poker match, but do not count on an easy win. Unless you are a champion-in-the-making, you won’t defeat her. Although, it would be fun to say you sat at the at the table with "The Duke".
