October 22nd, 2009 by Miranda

Howard Lederer grew up in a family of 5 in which he enjoyed betting on various card games at a young age. He discovered himself getting really competitive in these particular card games as he was playing his dad. After graduating from high school, Howard made a decision to place college on hold for a little bit and relocated to New York City to compete in some big-time chess. While playing chess, he was brought in to a poker game going on in the back of the room. Howard’s initial two years were rough as he played many hours and do not win most times. He made some extra cash by being an assistant for the poker players. He theorized he might improve his game by balancing his life away from poker. He brought about an effort to acquire more rest and focus more on the game.

The actual improvement in his game began when he began playing at the Mayfair Club in New York City. The Mayfair was a bridge and backgammon association where the best players would regularly challenge one another. Howard had access into several of the foremost players in chess. With their help, Howard Lederer would tweak his strategic thinking skills. He applied these strategic concepts to the game of No-Limit texas hold’em.

He also assisted his sister Annie Duke learn the game of poker. Annie was a great student of poker as she would consistently be asking questions about the right way to make the correct decision. He told Annie to head out to Sin City and compete in the WSOP competition. Annie is one of the greatest women players the poker arena has ever seen. Howard relocated to Sin City in Nineteen Ninety Three and participated in cash games for the subsequent 10 years. When the World Poker Tournament grew in popularity, he decided to compete in more tournaments.
