NL Texas Hold’em Poker- Howard Lederer?

[ English ]

Howard Lederer lived in a family of 5 where he loved participating in different card games at a young age. He discovered himself becoming really aggressive in these card games while competing against his dad. After finishing Sr. High school, Howard decided to put college on hold for a little while and moved away to New York City to participate in some formidable chess. While playing chess, he was introduced to a poker game taking place in the rear of the room. Howard’s initial 2 years were difficult as he would play many hours and lost a majority of the time. He earned some additional money by becoming an assistant for the poker enthusiasts. He judged he could boost his game by adjusting his life outside of poker. He made an attempt to get more sleep and concentrate more on poker.

The real improvement in his abilities happened when he started gambling at the Mayfair Club in New York City. The Mayfair was a bridge and backgammon club where the best gamblers would often challenge each other. He was able to access some of the best minds in chess. With their assistance, he would sharpen his strategic thinking skills. Howard applied these strategy concepts to the game of No-Limit hold’em.

Howard also assisted his sister Annie Duke learn the game of poker. Annie was an excellent student of poker as she constantly asked questions about the right way to make the proper decision. Howard Lederer told Annie Duke to head out to Las Vegas and play in the WSOP tournaments. She is one of the strongest female players the poker world has ever seen. Howard headed to Sin City in 1993 and played cash games for the following 10 years. When the World Poker Tournament grew in popularity, Howard decided to play more tournaments.
