    He actually preferred chess and took up poker because, 'To be profitable in chess, you have to be in the top five or six players in the world.'
    He almost always wears a green Boston Red Sox hat when he plays.
    He is known for seeking out the cheapest hotels and buffets in the cities where tournaments are held.
    He gave himself the nickname 'Action Dan' despite playing a conservative game and having a low-key demeanor.
    He won the Massachusetts State Chess Championship (1971) and the World Cup of Backgammon (1981).
    He has been a bankruptcy lawyer and owned a loan company.
    He avoids rants and outbursts while playing.
    Howard Lederer said, 'He might be one of the toughest gamblers I've ever met. He just refuses to not do the right thing at the table.'
    His appearance at back-to-back final tables (2003-04) was called the greatest accomplishment in the history of the World Series of Poker by ESPN's Norman Chad.
