He discovered himself getting really aggressive in these particular card games while competing against his father. After finishing high school, Howard decided to place higher education on hold for a bit and moved away to New York City to compete in some formidable chess. While competing in chess, he was introduced to a poker game taking place in the back of the room. Howard’s initial 2 years were rough as he would play extensive hours and lose most times. He earned some additional money by being an assistant for the poker enthusiasts. He believed he could boost his game by analyzing his life outside of poker. He brought about an effort to get more rest and focus attention even more on poker.

The actual improvement in his skills began when he started playing at the Mayfair Club in New York. The Mayfair was a bridge and backgammon club where the the most favorable players would often challenge each other. Howard had access into a number of the best players in chess.
