Fix Attention on Annie Duke

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

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker run wild after a huge success at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mom" to her 4 children. She hails from NH and was raised into a family of card players. If you don’t accept that, have a look at her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught Annie the best method to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small change girl and has won her share of hard tables, including knocking out Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Earning well over three million dollars in tournament action, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to develop his skills to become a force at the poker table.

You may encounter Annie at the Bellagio, you will see her on the tv and you may even play with her in a net poker game, but don’t bank on an easy win. Unless you’re a champion-in-the-making, you will not defeat her. However, it would be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
