Howard Lederer lived in a family of five where he loved taking part in numerous card games when he was young. He found himself getting very aggressive in these card games as he was competing against his dad. After graduating from high school, Howard decided to place higher education on hold for a little bit and headed to New York to play some big-time chess. While competing in chess, he was brought in to a poker game taking place in the back of the room. Howard's first 2 years were difficult as he would play many hours and do not win most times. He earned some additional money by becoming an runner for the poker enthusiasts. He theorized he might better his game by analyzing his life outside of poker. He made an effort to acquire more sleep and focus even more on the game.
