Annie Duke

Annie Duke acknowledges applause from the audience as she is introduced for the final table of a limit Hold 'em game June 30, 2005, at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker.
Annie Duke was often the only woman at the poker table, which influenced the way people saw her – and the way she saw herself. Feeling like an outsider can come at a cost, but also be an advantage.

“I figured it was part of the game that if somebody was at the table who was so emotionally invested in the fact that I was a woman, that they could treat me that way, that probably, that person wasn’t going to make good decisions at the table against me.”
