Howard Lederer was born into in a family of 5 in which he enjoyed betting on various card games at a young age. He discovered himself getting very competitive in these card games as he was competing against his dad. After graduating from high school, Howard made a decision to place college on hold for a bit and headed to New York City to participate in some big-time chess. While playing chess, he was introduced to a poker game taking place in the back of the room. Howard's initial 2 years were tough as he would play extensive hours and fail to win a majority of the time. He made some additional cash by being an runner for the poker enthusiasts. He theorized he possibly could boost his game by balancing his life away from poker. He brought about an attempt to get more sleep and concentrate even more on the game.

The actual improvement in his abilities began when he began betting at the Mayfair Club in New York. The Mayfair was a bridge and backgammon club where the best gamblers would frequently wager against each other. Howard was able to access several of the greatest minds in chess. With their help, Howard Lederer would hone his cunning thinking techniques. Howard used these strategic concepts in the game of No-Limit Texas Holdem.

Howard also helped his sibling Annie Duke learn the game of poker. She was a great student of the game as she would always be asking questions about the right way to make the proper choice. Howard Lederer told Annie to head out to Sin City and compete in the World Series of Poker competition. She is one of the greatest women players the poker world has ever seen. Howard relocated to Las Vegas in Nineteen Ninety Three and participated in cash games for the successive 10 years. When the WPT grew in popularity, Howard made the decision to compete in more tournaments.
