While most eyes were on the stage as Daniel Negreanu and Jack McClelland were inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame last night, there were a few pair of eyes that were on him.
Who’s that “him”? Howard “The Professor” Lederer.
Up from the underground, Lederer took a seat at inside the ceremony room at Binion’s Horsehoe Casino in Las Vegas to honor the newest pair of Hall of Fame members. How’d he get the invite? We’re not 100% sure but we’re guessing it wasn’t from his long time, well-documented nemesis Negreanu who is on record time and time again as being anti-Annie Duke (Howard’s sis) and no big fan of Howie either.
Thanks to the heroes over at Brazil’s Superpoker.com who snapped this pic:
and WickedChopsPoker who nabbed this shot (a little tough to see):
It wasn’t the first time that Lederer was spotted this week either…
So poker world – are you ready for the return of Howard Lederer?
