Player Bio

  • Darren Kramer is widely considered as one of the best all round poker players in South Africa. Whilst his bread and butter may be cash games he is also a very disciplined and skilled tournament player.
  • Darren is quoted as saying, 'I believe the fortune is in cash games and the fame in tournaments. Don't get me wrong I really enjoy playing tournament poker but to be honest tournament poker is so unpredictable and full time players like me cannot rely on winning a tournament with a decent pay cheque to survive.'
  • Growing up in Cape Town, Darren was introduced to the gaming industry through his dad who is one of the most successful bookmakers in Cape Town. Darren caught the poker bug whilst on a family holiday in Vegas where he tried his hand at the poker tables. He has won the All Africa poker tournament for a record 2 times.
  • He now spends much of time grinding online when he isn't travelling the tournament circuit, something he is looking to do more of going forward.
