Gambler
    (September 13, 1965- )
    Born in Concord, New Hampshire
    Birth name is Anne Lederer
    Won one World Series of Poker bracelet
    Won $3.1 million in tournament play
    Won more money in the WSOP than any other female player
    Sister of Howard Lederer
    Nicknamed Annie Legend, the Duke and the Duchess of Poker
    She left graduate school just one month before she was to defend her thesis.
    She bet fellow poker player Steve Zolotow $500 that her marriage would last at least five years.
    She tutored Ben Affleck before he won the California State Poker Championship (2004)
    Complaining that poker players have to pay tournament fees but are restricted from wearing their sponsors' logos, she said, 'We [poker players] are not even slaves. We're people paying to pick the cotton.'
    She refuses to play women-only events, saying 'Poker is one of the only sports where a woman can compete on a totally equal footing with a man, so I don't understand why there's a ladies only tournament.'
    She said that if she has to choose between a tournament or one of her children's plays, the play would always win out.
    She correctly answered 35 consecutive questions on 1 vs. 100, setting a record as the longest-lasting mob member.
