Fix Attention on Annie Duke


Posted by Erik | Posted in Poker | Posted on 12-02-2010

Annie Duke mightn’t have came away with her 1st WSOP Bracelet until two thousand and four but she remains one of the most powerful poker players around the ring games at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-awaited World Series of Poker win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "young crowd" of poker go crazy after a huge success at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mommy" to her 4 children. She was born in New Hampshire and was raised into a family of poker players. If you don’t accept that, watch her sibling, Howard Lederer, in action, Howard taught Annie the best method to play poker.

However, Annie Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has captured her cut of hard matches, including eliminating Howard along the way on numerous occasions.

Earning over $3 million in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his abilities to become a force at the poker table.

You may encounter Annie at the Bellagio, you will catch her on TV and you might even compete with her in an internet poker game, but do not expect an easy win. Unless you are a champion-in-the-making, you’ll not beat her. although, it would be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
