No-Limit Texas Holdem Poker- Who is Howard Lederer?

[ English ]

Howard Lederer lived in a family of five where he enjoyed participating in different card games when he was young. He found himself getting really aggressive in these particular card games as he was playing his father. After finishing Sr. High school, Howard decided to put higher education on hold for a bit and moved away to New York City to participate in some big-time chess. While participating in chess, he was brought in to a poker game going on in the rear of the room. Howard’s first two years were rough as he played countless hours and lost most times. He made some extra money by becoming an assistant for the poker players. He believed he possibly could better his game by adjusting his life outside of poker. He made an attempt to get more rest and focus even more on the game.

The actual improvement in his abilities happened when he began wagering at the Mayfair Club in New York. The Mayfair was a bridge and backgammon association where the best players would often compete against each other. Howard had access into several of the greatest players in chess. With their help, Howard Lederer would tweak his strategic thinking abilities. Howard applied these strategic ideas to the game of NL holdem.

Howard Lederer also assisted his sister Annie Duke master poker. She was a superb student of poker as she constantly asked questions about how to make the correct choice. Howard Lederer told Annie Duke to head out to Vegas and compete in the World Series of Poker competition. Annie Duke is one of the greatest female players the poker world has ever seen. He headed to Sin City in 1993 and participated in cash games for the successive decade. When the WPT grew in popularity, Howard decided to participate in more tournaments.
