Fix Attention on Annie Duke

Annie Duke mightn’t have earned her 1st WSOP Bracelet until two thousand and four but she is still one of the most feared poker competitors at the ring games at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s longawaited World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "buried game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker run crazy following a big win at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mom" to her four kids. She grew up in New Hampshire and raised into a family of card competitors. If you don’t accept that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who coached her how to participate in the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has succeeded at her cut of difficult tables, including knocking out Howard a few times along the way. They’re both competitors that have the capability to capture the big money and do so with a grin.

Annie is a tough competitor at any table due to the fact that she is a true poker player, but it is a bit more than simply being good at the game. Annie is extremely smart and graduated from Columbia University where she double majored in Psychology and English.

When you are seated across from Annie at the table you know she is there to compete in the game and she begins "summing" you up as soon as you approach the poker table. If you cannot play like a winner, then do not waste your time.

Winning over $3 million in tournament play, Annie became a adviser to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who was looking to enhance his skills and develop into a force at the tables.

You might see her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely notice her on the television and you may even participate against her in a cyber poker match, but don’t expect a simple win. Unless you’re a camp-in-the-making, you’ll not defeat her. Although, it’d be exciting to mention you played at the at the table with "The Duke".
