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 players around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. 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 amok following a big win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mommy" to her 4 children. She was born in New Hampshire and grew up in a family of poker players. If you don’t believe that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught Annie the correct way to play the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has won her share of hard games, which includes eliminating Howard a few times on several occasions.

Winning well over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Annie became a advisor to both and actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his techniques and become a force at the poker table.

You may catch Annie at the Bellagio, you’ll catch her on television and you may even compete against her in a net poker match, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you’re a rising star, you’ll not defeat her. although, it is likely to be cool to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
