Danny was a former West Beverly Hills High School student who set up after hours poker games during the summer at the Beverly Hills Beach Club. He introduced Steve Sanders to the yearly ritual. He is first seen sneaking into the club after hours with Steve with assistance from Brandon Walsh.
He played a game with Brandon, Steve, David Silver, and Steve's cousin Paul, telling a story about how the ritualistic poker games used to be called the Ross Wienerblatt All Night Poker Club and Chamber Music Society and had been going on for 20 years. He stated that the game would be filled with costumes, cigars, and girls. He wanted to up the stakes in the game and told the boys to call him if they ever wanted to do so, too.
