Crandell "Dandy" Addington is an American poker player and member of the Poker Hall of Fame.

He was one of the inaugural players in the 1970 World Series of Poker, and holds the record for most final table appearances (seven). He finished second in the WSOP Main Event on two separate occasions (1974 & 1978).

Nicknamed "Dandy" due to his outfits at the table, Doyle Brunson says that Addington stood out like he was some sort of movie star at the tables.

"He liked to wear expensive cowboy boots, immaculate Western outfits, and a top-line Stetson," said Brunson.

He left poker in 1980s to focus on a career in business.

"I haven't played in Vegas in years and years. When I retired I focused on my business enterprises," Addington told PokerNews in 2020. "I don't even play around San Antonio anymore, and they've got some really high-stakes games here now, which is what I like to play cash, no-limit high stakes."
