Rewind: Live chat with former poker world champion Annie Duke
Since 1994, Annie Duke has been a major force in poker, quickly establishing herself as one of the best players in the world.
Her first World Series of Poker bracelet came in the $2000 buy-in Omaha Hi/Lo Split in 2004, which she followed up by knocking out nine poker legends to win the No-Limit Texas Hold'em invitation-only WSOP Tournament of Champions the same year.
She has parlayed her skills into an industry-leading career that encompasses tournament play, advising gaming companies, authoring instructional books and videos, as well as being a proponent of players' rights.
In 2009, Duke appeared on Celebrity Apprentice and finished as the runner-up to eventual winner Joan Rivers.
Currently, she is the league commissioner of Epic Poker.
Duke talked about her card-playing career, the poker and online-gaming industries and much more in a live chat Nov. 23 on seattletimes.com.
