Howard LedererHoward Lederer was one of the few tournament players that I knew I wanted to feature but did not know personally when I decided to make this site. However, he is the name many people will be most familiar with. He had appearances at the final table of the World Poker Tour in 2003, at the Foxwoods and Party Poker Million events. Not only did he make two appearances, he won both. Watching both events of the World Poker Tour, I felt like I was able to obtain more information than I should have. I saw his hole cards, the way he played some of his hands, but more importantly a glimpse of the thought process he goes through before he makes each play. In my opinion we were able to watch the best playing at his best.

Howard left college to become a chess player, but ended up finding his way to the poker tables. He worked by day and played by night. After many losses, he found a way to make a living and become the player he is today. He taught his sister, Annie Duke, to play as well, and now she is one of the best known poker players in the industry and very successful herself.

One of the things that I find most interesting about Howard Lederer is his demeanor on and off the poker table. It is rare to find a man with such an even temper in this competitive game. Too often the men whine about how an opponent plays a hand, or how a person "sucked out" on the river, but I have never seen Howard display these traits. I have seen his posts on the RGP newsgroup where he answers people's questions and offers them small insights into some of the reasoning behind some of the plays he made in the past. This is also something, not characteristic of a person in the poker world, that I admire.

Howard LedererA person would most likely find Howard Lederer in high limit cash games, but he can also be found at major tournaments with larger buy-ins. During the 2003 World Series of Poker, he kept a diary-style report that can be found on the Gutshot Poker site. It was a very interesting read. I enjoyed the fact that a person with his skill also becomes nervous before some of these events. He wrote, "I have started to focus solely on how I am playing, what my chip position is, and who at my table can be outplayed. Worrying about how other players at other tables are doing is counter productive and I have basically eliminated it from my game." These types of small insights are the product of many years of play, and many tournament players can benefit from reading them.

Some of Howard's poker titles include, first in the 2003 Party Poker Million Limit Hold'em, first at the Bellagio's World Poker Classic No Limit Holdem and World Series titles in $5000 Omaha 8 HiLo in 2000 and $5000 Deuce to Seven 2001. Howard is part of the Full Tilt Poker team.
