Cancer Researcher Darlene Lee 'Secret Poker Player' No Longer

Published on 12 July 2014 by Pokerlistings 207

Darlene Lee is from Burnaby, Canada and has been playing poker for the last 15 years, mostly in secret. Now that she's deep in the 2014 World Series of Poker the secret might be out. Lee learned to play poker years before the poker boom and grew to love the game, honing her skills in local Canadian casinos. Darlene loves poker, but she mostly keeps it herself since her family and co-workers think of it as gambling. That might have to change once people start seeing her on television playing in poker's biggest event. Just one month ago Darlene took a year leave from her work as a cancer researcher to travel the world and play poker. She's already guaranteed ove $50,000 in prizes in this event so it's safe to say she's off to a great start. Check out the full interview with Darlene Lee and keep watching PokerListings.com for the latest news and videos from the 2014 WSOP in Las Vegas.
