Annie Duke might not have came away with her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but Annie remains one of the most feared poker players around the ring games at The Bellagio in Vegas. Annie’s long-overdue World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While players from the "young crowd" of poker go crazy after a huge win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mum" to her 4 children. She hails from New Hampshire and was raised into a family of poker players. If you don’t accept that, have a look at her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught her the correct way to play poker.

However, Annie Duke is no small change girl and has won her cut of difficult matches, which includes knocking out Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Earning well over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Annie became a advisor to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to build up his techniques and become a force at the poker table.

You might just observe Annie at the Bellagio, you’ll see her on the television and you might even compete with her in a net poker game, but don’t expect an easy win. Unless you are a rising star, you will not defeat her. although, it is likely to be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
