Focus on Annie Duke
February 8th, 2010 by Miranda

Annie Duke might not have captured her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but she remains one of the most powerful poker competitors around the live action games at The Bellagio in sin city. Annie’s longawaited World Series of Poker bracelet came with a win at the "cast aside game" of Omaha hi-low.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker go crazy following a huge win at the tables, Annie goes back home and becomes "mom" to her four kids. Annie was born in New Hampshire into a family of card players. If you do not accept that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who coached her how to wager on the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small change girl and has succeeded at her cut of challenging tables, including eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They’re both competitors that have the capability to win the large $$$$$ and do so with a grin.

Annie Duke is a strong competitor at any table because she is a genuine poker player, but it is a little more than just being strong at the game. Annie is surprisingly smart and graduated from Columbia University where she majored in Psychology and English.

When you are seated across from Annie at the poker table you will see she is there to compete in the game and she starts "summing" you up from the time you join the game table. If you cannot compete like a Champion, then don’t waste your time.

Acquiring over three million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie branched out to become a adviser to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to sharpen his techniques and become a force at the poker table.

You might see her at the Bellagio, you will observe her on television and you might even play against her in a web-based poker game, but don’t count on a simple win. Except of course you’re a camp-in-the-making, you won’t beat her. However, it’d be fun to say you sat at the at the table with "The Duke".
