Focus Attention on Annie Duke

October 14th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Annie Duke mightn’t have earned her 1st WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but she remains one of the most powerful poker players at the ring matches at The Bellagio in sin city. Annie’s long-overdue World Series of Poker bracelet came with a win at the "cast aside game" of Omaha hi/low.

While competitors from the "younger generation" of poker go wild after a huge win at the tournament, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her 4 kids. She grew up in New Hampshire into a family of poker players. If you do not believe that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who coached her how to compete in the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small change girl and has succeeded at her share of demanding tables, which includes eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They are both players that have the capability to acquire the big cash and do so with a grin.

Annie is a strong player at any table because she is a natural poker player, but it is a bit more than just being great at the game. Annie Duke is surprisingly intelligent and graduated from Columbia University where she double majored in Psychology and English.

When you take a seat across from her at the poker table you’ll see Annie is there to play the game and she starts "summing" you up as soon as you approach the poker table. If you cannot compete like a winner, then don’t waste your time.

Winning over 3 million dollars in tournament competitions, Mrs. Duke branched out to become a consultant to both the UltimateBet website and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his abilities and develop into a power at the tables.

You might just see her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely notice Annie on the television and you may even participate against her in an online poker game, but do not expect a simple win. Unless you are a champion-in-the-making, you will not beat her. Although, it’d be exciting to mention you sat at the at the table with "The Duke".
