Fix Attention on Annie Duke

Mrs. Duke may not have won her 1st WSOP Bracelet until ‘04 but she is one of the most feared poker players at the ring matches at The Bellagio in vegas. Annie’s longawaited WSOP bracelet came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha hi low.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy following a big win at the tournament, Annie heads back home and becomes "mom" to her four children. Annie 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 taught her how to gamble on the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has won her share of demanding tables, which includes eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They are both competitors that have the skill to win the large cash and do it with a grin.

Mrs. Duke is a strong competitor at any table due to the fact that she is a true poker player, but it is a little more than simply being strong at the game. Annie Duke is very intelligent and graduated from Columbia University where she took a double major in Psychology and English.

When you take a seat across from Annie at the poker table you’ll see she is there to compete in the game and she starts "sizing" you up as soon as you sit down at the poker table. If you can not gamble like a winner, then don’t waste your time.

Acquiring over $3 million in tournament play, Mrs. Duke branched out to become a adviser to both and actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to enhance his talents and develop into a force at the tables.

You might catch a glimpse of her at the Bellagio, you’ll notice Annie on the tv and you may even compete against her in an online poker game, but do not anticipate a simple win. Unless you are a camp-in-the-making, you won’t beat her. However, it would be fun to mention you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
