Annie Duke mightn’t have came away with her first WSOP Bracelet until two thousand and four but she remains one of the most powerful poker competitors around the ring games at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-awaited World Series of Poker win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "young crowd" of poker go crazy after a big win at the tables, Annie goes home to be "mom" to her 4 kids. She hails from New Hampshire and grew up in a family of card players. If you don’t accept that, check out her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, Howard taught her the correct way to play poker.

However, Annie Duke is not a small-potatoes girl and has captured her cut of challenging tables, including eliminating Howard a few times on numerous occasions.

Winning well over 3 million dollars in tournament play, Annie became a advisor to both UltimateBet and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to develop his abilities to become a big player at the poker table.

You may encounter her at the Bellagio, you will catch her on television and you might even play with her in a web-based poker match, but don’t count on an easy win. Unless you’re a up and coming master, you won’t defeat her. However, it would be cool to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
