People are simply voting for the names they have heard of.

There is no doubt the most unfluential player in the world of poker in 2009 has to be Jeff Lissandro

he won 3 WSOP bracelets, and completely dominated the discipline for which he became famous. ie 7 crd stud.

He was voted player of the series winning the much coveted player of the series.

Before the events he was refused a sponsor.Now they are clamouring to get him on board..

Its Ok saying Durrr or Ivey, because they are already famous, but their achievements havent been all that notable.

Lissandro is simply streets ahead of everyone in terms of what he's achieved.

I think that tom dwan had a good year, was some great losses but he came back from them and ended this year with profit. Awesome player. Worship

This guy is a really strange player with big ups and downs..

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!

Have to go for Isuldur, he set the poker world on fire for weeks.

Although it's fairly obvious that Isildur1 had created a kind of hype around his person, his real influence hasn't been that big, but I think Joe Cada has shown something VERY important :

even the youngest player can win a big tournament, provided he has the passion, the patience and the will to learn constantly.

I would say Phil Ivey in Live poker but in online poker Isildur1 was the man!

Isildur 1. No doubt about it. Joe Cada still broke tables but not as good as the one.
