Concentrate on Annie Duke

Annie Duke may not have attained her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but Annie is one of the most powerful poker competitors around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP win came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "young crowd" of poker go berserk following a huge win at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mom" to her 4 kids. She was born in NH and was raised into a family of poker players. If you do not accept that, have a look at her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, who taught her the best method to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has won her cut of hard tables, including eliminating Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament action, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both UltimateBet and actor Ben Affleck, who wished to sharpen his skills and become a power player at the poker table.

You might see Annie at the Bellagio, you’ll catch her on the tv and you might just even compete with her in an internet poker game, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you’re a rising star, you’ll not defeat her. However, it would be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
