Focus Attention on Annie Duke
May 6th, 2010 by Deacon

Annie Duke may not have captured her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but she is still one of the most powerful poker players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Sin City. Annie’s long-awaited World Series of Poker bracelet came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker run wild following a big win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her 4 children. She was born in New Hampshire and grew up in a family of poker players. If you do not believe that, have a look at her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, who taught Annie how-to compete in the game.

However, Annie Duke is not a small fry kind of girl and has won her cut of hard matches, which includes eliminating Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament action, Annie became a advisor to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to develop his techniques to become a big player in poker.

You might run into Annie at the Bellagio, you’ll catch her on the television and you might even play against her in a web poker match, but do not expect an easy win. Unless you’re a champion-in-the-making, you won’t defeat her. although, it would be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
