On oneís list of poker greats, it is impossible to miss Dan Harrington, also known as Action Dan in the poker circuit. His poker credentials merits a space in the poker industry with his vast experience and iconic cap bearing the name of Boston Red Sox while playing poker. Many other players will be able to match his accomplishments, but his distinctive style makes his game all his own. It would be interesting to learn more about this persona and what makes him tick in the poker industry.

Interesting Bits on Dan

Dan Harrington was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on December 1945. He is related to the NFL player, Joey Harrington, and golfer, Padraig Harrington. Dan Harrington used to be a champion at backgammon and even won the Massachusetts State Chess Championship back in 1971. He is actually a US chess master and a lawyer. His history of competitive sport did not stop there because he also was a member of the MIT team that became popular at roulette, and then he moved on to another group specializing in blackjack after the group disbanded. He also had the opportunity to play a game of poker opposite Bill Gates while the latter was still at Harvard. His early taste of poker came through Mayfair Club during the 1980s where he got to play with Steve Zolotow, Erik Seidel and Howard Lederer. The surprise doesnít end there because, now, he also dabbles in the stock market and real estate.

Dan Harrington is known as a tight aggressive poker player who sticks to strict starting hands compared to other professional players. With his solid poker strategy, Dan was able to reach a good number of final tables at big events such as the World Series of Poker in 1995, 1987, 2003 and 2004 where he pocketed prizes amounting to as much as $1 million. He got his WSOP bracelet from a $2500 No Limit Texas Holdem as well as at the European Poker Openís seven card stud held in London. He got to the final table of the WPT in the year of 2005. Again in 2007, he pocketed more than $1.6 million from winning the Legends of Poker.
