Annie Duke may not have won her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until 2004 but she is still one of the most powerful poker competitors around the cash games at The Bellagio in sin city. Annie’s long-overdue WSOP 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 big win at the tournament, Annie heads back home and becomes "mom" to her four children. Annie was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of card players. If you do not believe that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who taught her how to participate in the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has captured her share of hard tables, which includes eliminating Howard a few times along the way. They are both competitors that have the capability to capture the big money and do it with a smile.

Annie Duke is a strong player at any poker table due to the fact that she is a legitimate poker player, but it is a little more than simply being strong at the game. Mrs. Duke is extremely intelligent and graduated from Columbia University where she double majored in English and Psychology.

When you take a seat across from her at the table you’ll see she is there to compete in the game and she starts "summing" you up as soon as you sit down at the game table. If you cannot bet like a winner, then do not waste your time.

Winning over $3 million in tournament play, Annie became a consultant to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to sharpen his skills and grow into a force at the poker table.

You might just catch a glimpse of her at the Bellagio, you’ll definitely notice Annie on television and you may even compete against her in a net poker match, but do not anticipate a simple win. Except of course you’re a champion-in-the-making, you won’t beat her. However, it’d be fun to mention you sat at the at the table with "The Duke".
