No-Limit Holdem Poker- Who is Howard Lederer?

After finishing high school, Howard made a decision to place college on hold for a bit and moved to New York to compete in some formidable chess. While playing chess, he was brought in to a poker game going on in the rear of the room. Howard’s 1st two years were difficult as he played countless hours and lost a majority of the time. He earned some additional cash by becoming an assistant for the poker enthusiasts. He believed he could better his game by adjusting his life outside of poker.
