Focus on Annie Duke

Annie Duke might not have captured her first WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but Annie is still one of the most feared poker players around the ring matches 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 competitors from the "younger generation" of poker go berserk following a big win at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mommy" to her four children. She hails from New Hampshire and was raised into a family of poker players. If you don't believe that, have a look at her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, who taught Annie the best method to compete in poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small fry kind of girl and has won her cut of challenging games, which includes eliminating Howard a few times on several occasions.

Winning well over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Annie branched out to become a consultant to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to sharpen his skills to become a power player in poker.

You might catch her at the Bellagio, you will catch her on the television and you might even compete against her in a web-based poker game, but do not expect an easy win. Unless you are a champion-in-the-making, you will not beat her. However, it would be fun to say you sat at the same table as "The Duke".
