Howard Henry Lederer Biography
Howard Lederer is a two-time WSOP gold bracelet winner who has cashed 44 times in WSOP events and has earned more than $6.5 million in live tournament action. His strategic approach to poker had been held in high regard by many prior to the Full Tilt fiasco that severely damaged his reputation and standing in the poker community.
Howard Lederer admitted no wrongdoing for his role in the site's mismanagement and subsequent downfall while agreeing to a settlement with the DoJ that many viewed as a proverbial slap on the wrist. He may always be guilty in the eyes of many and forever held accountable for one of the darkest chapters in the history of online poker. But with the passage of time, some of the deep hatred previously displayed toward Lederer appears to be lessening.
He is also well known as "The Professor" a nickname that poker player and commendator Jesse May gave to him. Ledered himself says that the nickname came out of nothing but many attribute the nickname at the strategic approach Lederer has at poker.
