Howard Lederer AKA "The Professor" lives in Las Vegas and his total winnings exceed $4,100,701, of which 9 large pots were collected as first place finishes and 2 of these had the honer of earning Mr. Lederer WSOP bracelets. He started playing poker more than 20 years ago, along with his Sister, Annie Duke, and he aims to win the big WSOP $10,000 buy-in.
As his nickname indicates, he likes to educate other people in playing poker, and is probably also one of the best players to give advice about the game. At the tables, he usually just sits and waits for the opponents to show their signs. He has a patient style of play, and tends to play pretty much out of sight, until he all of a sudden turns the table upside down. His professional opponents know this of course, and therefore try not to underestimate the poker skill he posses.
