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

While competitors from the "young crowd" of poker run amok following a huge win at the tables, Annie heads home to be "mum" to her 4 children. She was born in NH and was raised into a family of poker players. If you do not believe that, watch her sibling, Howard Lederer, when he plays, who taught Annie how-to compete in the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small fry kind of girl and has earned her cut of hard games, which includes knocking out Howard along the way on several occasions.

Earning well over three million dollars in tournament action, Annie became a advisor to both and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to build up his abilities to become a force in poker.

You might observe Annie at the Bellagio, you will see her on TV and you may even play against her in a web poker match, but don’t count on a simple win. Unless you’re a rising star, you will not defeat her. although, it would be cool to say you played at the same table as "The Duke".
