'Action Dan' was the WSOP Championship winner in 1995. His nickname was largely seen as sarcastic, viewed by many as a very tight player, until hole card cameras blew his cover and revealed him to be a wily old pro. Perhaps an even more outstanding achievement than winning the main event was his final table finishes back to back in 2003 and 2004 in large fields.

Harrington has since cemented his place in poker history authoring a series of instructional poker books, widely recognised as setting the new standard for future authors. M, Q, continuation bets and probe bets were all terms discussed at length and readily adopted by the poker community. 2 WSOP bracelets and a WPT title puts Harrington in an elite group of players that have WSOP and WPT titles to their name.
