Coming in at #12 on the 20 Most Influential People in Poker list is a pro that needs next to no introduction.

This high-stakes pro is both the envy and the target of amateurs and pros around the world. He is the first of the poker "new guard" to rise to superstardom and remains the most sought after cash-game player in all the world.

Yes, #12 is durrrr - or Tom Dwan for the non-online types.

Tom Dwan first started playing poker back in 2004 on Paradise Poker with a small $50 gift from his father. He selected the nickname "durrrr" to try and tilt his opponents. He worked his way up on the site and eventually was playing the highest stakes.
