Mrs. Duke might not have won her first World Series of Poker Bracelet until two thousand and four but she remains one of the most powerful poker players at the live action matches at The Bellagio in vegas. Annie’s long-overdue World Series of Poker bracelet came with success at the "buried game" of Omaha high-low.

While competitors from the "younger crowd" of poker go crazy after a big win at the tables, Annie goes back home and becomes "mom" to her four kids. She grew up in New Hampshire and raised into a family of poker players. If you do not accept that, watch her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who taught her how to compete in the game.

However, Mrs. Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has succeeded at her share of demanding tables, including eliminating Howard along the way on several occasions. They’re both competitors that have the capability to win the large money and do so with a smile.

Annie Duke is a tough player at any table due to the fact that she is a natural poker player, but it’s a bit more than just being great at the game. Annie Duke is very smart and graduated from Columbia University where she took a double major in Psychology and English.

When you sit across from Annie at the poker table you will see Annie is there to compete in the game and she begins "sizing" you up from the time you sit down at the poker table. If you can’t play like a Champion, then don’t bother.

Winning over three million dollars in tournament play, Annie Duke became a consultant to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who aspired to sharpen his abilities and grow into a force at the tables.

You might glimpse her at the Bellagio, you’ll see her on the tv and you might even compete against her in an internet poker game, but don’t count on an easy win. Except of course you are a camp-in-the-making, you will not defeat her. Although, it’d be exciting to say you played at the at the table with "The Duke".
