Fix Attention on Annie Duke

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

While players from the "young crowd" of poker run amok following a huge win at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mom" to her four children. She was born in NH and grew up in a family of poker players. If you don’t accept that, watch her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, who taught her the best method to play the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has captured her cut of difficult games, including knocking out Howard a few times on several occasions.

Winning well over $3 million in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both UltimateBet and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his techniques to become a big player at the poker table.

You may notice Annie at the Bellagio, you will see her on the television and you might even play against her in an online poker match, but do not count on a simple win. Unless you’re a champion-in-the-making, you won’t beat her. although, it would be cool to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
