Poker Legend Annie Duke Betting on Marriage.

3 January 2011 by admin

What a way to end the year. The Poker world’s Anne Duke announced her engagement to actor and fellow poker player Joe Reitman on Christmas. It will be the second marriage for both the mother of four and for Reitman.

Duke announced her engagement on Twitter on Christmas Day, saying over multiple Twitter tweets, “I said yes! I am still shaky. Total surprise from Joe Ugly. I am the luckiest woman ever. Best man on earth. I am so in love. Sigh. So Joe Ugly put the ring in the bottom of my stocking instead of the traditional chocolate orange. Sneaky! But now I’m pissed that I didn’t get a chocolate orange this year! Freaking Joe Ugly!”

Very obviously that was multiple tweets. But Twitter congrats were sent to Duke from friends including Liv Boeree, Samantha Ryan, Prahlad, Joe Sebok, Tiffany Michelle and Andy Bloch as well as from many, many others.

There are high hopes for the couple and hopefully no one will bet against them. Back when Duke married first husband, Ben Duke, Steve Zolotow, another poker pro, made a $500 bet that Duke’s marriage would be over within five years. He ended up paying her when her first marriage passed the five year mark and wound up lasting for thirteen years.

Duke is one of poker’s legends as she holds the second place mark on the Women’s All Time Poker List; her tournament earning total more than $4,270,000. She is also the proud owner of a World Series of Poker bracelet from the 2004 $3,000 Omaha High-Low 8/OB event.

But her now fiancé Joe Reitman, who is obviously also known as Joe Ugly, is not poker slouch either. Granted his wins do not come near Duke’s but he will admit that his game has improved since he started dating Duke: “My game has improved ten-fold,” Reitman has said. Reitman has won some small cashes in the WSOP, but his biggest win to date was in 2006 at the $1 Million Guarantee; he brought home $266,000 from that event.

We here at Online Casino Suite with Duke and Reitman the best of luck with their marriage and many happy years together. We also encourage people not to bet against Duke, a lesson Zolotow is sure not to repeat.

    On the other hand, it could mean she’s not superficial, since she wants to marry him anyway. So it could be a good sign.

  2. James says:

    Not sure the marriage will last if she’s already nicknamed him “Joe Ugly.”
