I've never met a man as sweet as The Duke...I remember when I first met him at the Golden Nugget and he knocked me out of the cash game...he returned some of my money, gave me his card and said, I look forward to playing with you again. I will never forget how sweet he was and we now have a awesome friendship!

He is an honest and professional businessman. Greedy people who did that atrocity to him should be in prison for life. "The Duke" is a gentleman, intellect, and respectful person. Genuine.
