Howard Lederer lived in a family of 5 where he enjoyed gambling on different card games when he was young. He found himself getting really competitive in these card games while competing against his father. After finishing Sr. High school, Howard decided to place higher education on hold for a little while and moved to New York to play some serious chess. While competing in chess, he was brought in to a poker game going on in the rear of the room. Howard’s initial 2 years were difficult as he played extensive hours and lose most times. He made some additional cash by becoming an runner for the poker players. He judged he possibly could better his game by adjusting his life away from poker. He brought about an effort to get more sleep and concentrate even more on the game.

The actual improvement in his game happened when he began wagering at the Mayfair Club in New York City. The Mayfair was a bridge and backgammon association where the best players would regularly challenge each other. Howard was able to access several of the foremost players in chess. With their assistance, Howard Lederer would hone his logical thinking abilities. Howard applied these strategy ideas to the game of No-Limit hold’em.

Howard also helped his sister Annie Duke learn poker. Annie was an excellent student of poker as she would consistently be asking questions about the right way to make the correct decision. Howard Lederer told Annie to head out to Las Vegas and compete in the WSOP competition. Annie is one of the strongest women players the poker arena has ever seen. Howard Lederer headed to Sin City in Nineteen Ninety Three and competed in money games for the subsequent 10 years. When the WPT grew in popularity, he made the decision to play more tournaments.
