I went with isildur. "Influential" in this case can also be understood like "influential, but in a bad way". I think he doesn't do the poker world much justice, 1st donking off like crazy, and then whining beacuse his opponent used what he regards as a failsafe cheating device (ie, a hand DB)

To me it was Tom Dwan! Just look at the turn he managed to do against Antonius, its something that lots of players and poker analysts considered very unlikely to happen, but it did! Each day he is becoming more and more extraordinary, even an example to me. Of course i will never manage to play the stakes he does, but i can say that i follow his way of play and i believe it can make my poker skills turn better!

Phil Ivey had a great year and the story with is wife at the end of the year forced my choice poor Phil I feel sorry for you hope you get over it with out loosing a fortune try dealing that with her over a poker tables would be a nice option for you
