NL Hold’em Poker- Howard Lederer?

Howard Lederer grew up in a family of 5 in which he enjoyed playing various card games at a young age. He discovered himself getting very aggressive in these particular card games as he was competing against his father. After finishing secondary school, Howard decided to place college on hold for a bit and moved to New York City to compete in some formidable chess. While participating in chess, he was introduced to a poker game going on in the rear of the room. Howard’s initial two years were rough as he played countless hours and fail to win most times. He earned some additional money by becoming an runner for the poker enthusiasts. He judged he could improve his game by analyzing his life away from poker. He brought about an attempt to get more rest and focus attention more on poker.

The actual improvement in his game began when he began betting at the Mayfair Club in New York. The Mayfair was a bridge and backgammon association where the best gamblers would frequently challenge one another. Howard had access into some of the foremost players in chess. With their assistance, Howard would tweak his logical thinking abilities. He applied these strategic concepts to the game of NL hold’em.

Howard also assisted his sister Annie Duke master poker. Annie was a great student of the game as she constantly asked questions about how to make the correct choice. He told Annie Duke to head out to Las Vegas and compete in the World Series of Poker competition. Annie is one of the greatest women players the poker arena has ever seen. He headed to Vegas in 1993 and competed in cash games for the next decade. When the WPT grew in popularity, he decided to compete in more tournaments.
