Lederer began tutoring his sister Annie who played poker in Montana at the time, and tried to qualify for the World Series of Poker in 1986 but didn’t succeed.
However, Howard qualified the following year, made it to the final table, and won $10,000 after finishing fifth. In 1993, he moved to Las Vegas to focus on his pro- poker career, and between 1993 and 1999, he made it to eight final tables at WSOP events.

His net worth was growing steadily.
