Concentrate on Annie Duke

Mrs. Duke mightn’t have captured her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but she is one of the most feared poker competitors around the live action matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s longawaited WSOP bracelet came with a win at the "cast aside game" of Omaha hi/low.

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker go wild after a big win at the tournament, Annie heads home and becomes "mom" to her 4 kids. She was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker players. If you do not accept that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to bet on the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has captured her share of challenging tables, which includes knocking out Howard a few times along the way. They’re both players that have the skill to win the large cash and do so with a grin.

Annie Duke is a tough player at any table due to the fact that she is a natural poker player, but it is a little more than just being great at the game. Annie is very intelligent and graduated from Columbia University where she majored in English and Psychology.

When you are seated across from her at the poker table you will see Annie Duke is there to play the game and she starts "sizing" you up from the time you join the game table. If you can not play like a winner, then don’t bother.

Earning over $3 million in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both and actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his abilities and develop into a force at the poker table.

You will likely glimpse her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely see Annie on the television and you might even compete against her in an online poker match, but do not expect an easy win. Unless you are a camp-in-the-making, you won’t defeat her. Although, it would be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
