Annie Duke may not have captured her 1st WSOP Bracelet until 2004 but Annie remains one of the most powerful poker competitors around the ring matches at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. Annie’s long-awaited WSOP win came with a win at the "forgotten game" of Omaha Hi-Lo.

While competitors from the "young crowd" of poker go crazy following a huge success at the tables, Annie heads 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, observe her sibling, Howard Lederer, in action, who taught her the correct way to compete in the game.

However, Annie Duke is not a small-potatoes girl and has captured her share of difficult tables, including eliminating Howard along the way on several occasions.

Earning well over three million dollars in tournament action, Annie became a consultant to both UltimateBet.com and Hollywood actor Ben Affleck, who wished to develop his skills to become a force at the poker table.

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