Who is Annie Duke?

Elvis Elvis

Annie Duke is the most famous female poker player, and for good reason; she is easily the best and most successful female poker player to play the game. She is one of only two women, along with Jennifer Harman, to play winning poker at high limits on a consistent basis. She is also the most successful female poker player in World Series of Poker history.

Annie learned the game of poker from her brother, Howard Lederer, who is also a very successful professional poker player. She left University to pursue her poker dream, and so far things have been working out very well.

One thing about Annie Duke that will never come into question is her competitiveness. In 2000 she took 10th place in the World Series of Poker Main event. While this is an amazing accomplishment on its own, the clincher is that she did it while eight months pregnant with her third child! She won her first WSOP bracelet in the 2004 $2,000 Omaha High Low Event, and has made the money in numerous other WSOP tournaments.
