Untold Story #23: Meet Annie Duke World's Greatest Women

    • Business

This woman grew up in a card playing family.  At the age of 22, she played Texas Hold-Em in a casino and after a short while, realized she was really good at cards…especially poker. So she began to play professionally in tournaments across the country and, millions of dollars later, became known as one of the top poker players in the world. And from this place of success, she started to make a difference. She raised money for struggling African countries and for Refugee International. And she stood up against efforts to portray women and men as being different intellectually. In recent years she has used her skills to help young people develop the essential skills of critical thinking and decision making. It is my pleasure to introduce one of the World’s Greatest Women - Annie Duke.
