Focus Attention on Annie Duke


Posted by George | Posted in Poker | Posted on 11-10-2012

Annie Duke might not have came away with her first WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but she is one of the most powerful poker players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-awaited WSOP win came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "young crowd" of poker run amok following a big success at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mommy" to her four children. She hails from NH and was raised into a family of poker players. If you do not believe that, have a look at her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught her the correct way to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small-potatoes girl and has won her share of difficult matches, which includes eliminating Howard along the way on several occasions.

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

You might notice her at the Bellagio, you’ll see her on TV and you might just even compete with her in an online poker match, but do not expect an easy win. Unless you’re a champion-in-the-making, you won’t beat her. although, it would be fun to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
