Annie Duke may not have won her first WSOP Bracelet until two thousand and four but she remains one of the most feared poker competitors at the ring matches at The Bellagio in sin city. Annie’s longawaited WSOP bracelet came with a win at the "cast aside game" of Omaha hi/lo.

While competitors from the "younger crowd" of poker go wild after a large win at the tournament, Annie goes home and becomes "mom" to her four children. Annie grew up in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker competitors. If you do not accept that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who coached her how to gamble on the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has won her share of hard tables, which includes eliminating Howard along the way on a couple of occasions. They are both competitors that have the ability to win the huge bucks and do it with a grin.

Annie is a strong player at any poker table due to the fact that she is a real poker player, but it is a little more than simply being good at the game. Mrs. Duke is very smart and graduated from Columbia U where she took a double major in Psychology and English.

When you are seated across from Annie at the poker table you know Annie Duke is there to compete in the game and she starts "summing" you up as soon as you sit down at the table. If you can not bet like a Champion, then don’t bother.

Earning over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Mrs. Duke became a adviser to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to enhance his skills and become a power at the poker table.

You may see her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely see Annie on the television and you might even compete against her in a net poker game, but do not expect an easy win. Unless you’re a camp-in-the-making, you won’t defeat her. Although, it would be exciting to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
