The casino world is a strange place.
It’s both rewarding and very shameful as well.
Because there are many people from all over the world having their fingers in this pie called ‘gambling’, you can expect literally anything.
From true legends who like to be in the spotlight to shy champions, you have it all.
Anything you can ever imagine.
On the other, darker side, there are many people who are considered as ‘players’ only because they play poker.
They cheat, eek at other people’s cards and would do anything to win, really.
Like, little children, they are savage and unapologetic.
But, out of these people, tons of them.
Who is the nastiest and the most hated of them all?
Let’s find out!
The answer is simple; Annie Duke. Everyone knows her as the ‘Duchess of Poker’ but they would strongly disagree on that one.
According to the poker code, the player is supposed to be fair and polite.
He is not supposed to cheat, yell, offend and peek at other people’s cards.
Well, this is exactly what Annie Duke does.
She is the center of every poker scandal and she is not ashamed of it.
That’s the most embarrassing thing.
She doesn’t regret anything and is totally unapologetic.
Even the poker legend of all time, Daniel Negreanu says so.
According to him, Annie Duke ‘should be in the Hall of Poker Shame instead of Poker Fame’.
She is totally unapologetic and fierce; that’s not according to the poker rules though.
What Is The Key to a Good Poker Game?
Before starting with gambling, everyone must know and learn fair play.
Without it, we are doomed; the whole poker world is, in fact!
The roots that our poker ancestors were building for centuries will go down.
Because of characters like Annie Duke.
It’s not fair to cheat, to peek at cards that aren’t your own.
Everyone should mind their business.
In life, but in poker wold as well.
Annie Duke is the sister of the famous Howard Lederer’s sister.
That’s how you know she is a savage and won’t accept the rules.
Nor she will play according to them without breaking them.
As I said before, she is the center of every scandal and she isn’t afraid to show it.
Her rebel nature is exactly the opposite of what a poker player should be like.
Many people worship her and think of her as ‘the best thing that has happened to the poker world’ but the rest of the world disagrees.
And they have a right to do so.
Cheating in poker is an unacceptable act, and everyone should know it.
Annie Duke is not the only player that is cheating, and that’s a fact.
The thing we should remember is that being unfair for your own selfish good is not the best way to the top.
That’s not what legends do!
