Fix Attention on Annie Duke

December 16th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Annie Duke might not have attained her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but Annie remains one of the most feared poker players around the ring games at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP win came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy following a big win at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mom" to her four kids. She was born in New Hampshire and was raised into a family of poker players. If you do not accept that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, in action, Howard taught Annie how-to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small change girl and has earned her share of difficult games, including eliminating Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament action, Annie became a consultant to both UltimateBet and actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to build up his techniques to become a force at the poker table.

You may run into Annie at the Bellagio, you will see her on television and you might just even compete with her in a web-based poker match, but don’t count on a simple win. Unless you are a champion-in-the-making, you won’t beat her. although, it is likely to be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
