Darren Harbinson Joins Irish Poker Tour ‘Team Pro’

Everyone that meets Darren Harbinson takes to him immediately. The epitome of a Gentle Giant, Darren is a big man with a heart of gold; he is softly spoken with a lovely manner and a great sense of humour. When you are all-in against Darren and he wishes you good luck, he really means it and he always appears genuinely disappointed when he knocks somebody out of a tournament.

None of this means that Darren is not a dangerous opponent; in the last few months, he has won the Cork Festival High Roller, finished 3rd in the Westport Festival Main Event, and 5th in the Irish Poker Tour Final in Dublin. On top of all that he was 30th out of nearly 2,500 entrants in this year’s Irish Open.

Aged 29, a father of six from Antrim, Darren learned poker from Tour Ambassador Rinty Monaghan and blames all his successes on guidance from him and close support from his fiancé and his parents. We are delighted to welcome him to the Irish Poker Tour Team and he is delighted to continue to spread the good word about tournament poker all across the island of Ireland. Darren makes his debut as a Team Pro at the Monster festival later this week.
