Mrs. Duke may not have won her 1st World Series of Poker Bracelet until ‘04 but she is one of the most powerful poker players around the cash games at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-overdue World Series of Poker bracelet came with a win at the "cast aside game" of Omaha hi/lo.

While players from the "younger generation" of poker run wild after a huge win at the tournament, Annie heads back home to be "mom" to her four children. Annie was born in New Hampshire and raised into a family of card competitors. If you do not believe that, observe her brother, Howard Lederer, in action who educated her how to play the game.

However, Annie Duke is no small-potatoes girl and has won her cut of demanding tables, which includes knocking out Howard along the way on a couple of occasions. They are both competitors that have the ability to acquire the large cash and do it with a smile.

Annie Duke is a strong competitor at any table due to the fact that she is a legitimate poker player, but it is a bit more than just being strong at the game. Annie Duke is incredibly intelligent and graduated from Columbia U where she took a double major in English and Psychology.

When you take a seat across from Annie at the poker table you will see Annie is there to compete in the game and she starts "sizing" you up from the time you join the poker table. If you cannot play like a winner, then don’t waste your time.

Winning over three million dollars in tournament competitions, Annie branched out to become a adviser to both the UltimateBet poker room and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wanted to enhance his skills and grow into a power at the poker table.

You will likely glimpse her at the Bellagio, you will see her on the tv and you might even play against her in a web poker match, but don’t count on a simple win. Except of course you are a camp-in-the-making, you will not defeat her. Although, it would be fun to say you played at the at the table with "The Duke".
