Focus Attention on Annie Duke

August 17th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Annie Duke might not have won her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until ‘04 but she is still one of the most powerful poker competitors around the ring matches at The Bellagio in vegas. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP bracelet came with success at the "cast aside game" of Omaha hi/low.

While competitors from the "younger crowd" of poker run crazy following a large win at the tournament, Annie goes home and becomes "mom" to her 4 children. Annie grew up in New Hampshire into a family of card players. If you don’t accept that, check out her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who taught her how to bet on the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has won her cut of challenging tables, which includes knocking out Howard along the way on several occasions. They are both competitors that have the ability to capture the big $$$$$ and do so with a grin.

Annie is a strong player at any poker table because she is a natural poker player, but it is a bit more than just being strong at the game. Annie Duke is incredibly smart and graduated from Columbia U where she took a double major in English and Psychology.

When you take a seat across from Annie at the table you will see Annie Duke is there to compete in the game and she begins "sizing" you up as soon as you join the poker table. If you cannot play like a winner, then don’t waste your time.

Earning over three million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie became a consultant to both the UltimateBet poker room and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to sharpen his techniques and become a force at the poker table.

You may glimpse her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely see her on the tv and you might even play against her in an internet poker game, but do not anticipate an easy win. Unless you’re a camp-in-the-making, you will not defeat her. Although, it would be exciting to say you sat at the at the table with "The Duke".
