Paul Darden

While Annie Duke and Kathy Liebert have brought poker to women, Paul Darden has taken it upon himself to bring it to the African American community.

Paul is not after the fame of being a poker star. He makes a living from the game and has a great confidence at the table making him a formidable opponant.

He met his mentor Phil Ivey in Atlantic City where Paul used to participate in Stud games. He is not considered to be a specialist in Stud, with his WSOP gold bracelet to prove this.

Paul has the patience and aggression that make him a naturally good player and he learns from the best players around, meaning that he will be around for a long while yet.
