Barry Greenstein

Share this
If you like players who base their tactics on cold mathematical calculations and logic, you should pay attention to Barry Greenstein. If you have never liked math, but have instead liked true human valuables and kind hearts, never let this guy out of your sight. In case you don’t pay attention to any these things and like so called “gray cardinals”, who play for millions of dollars and often stay unnoticed by the most of people – there is a chance that you will love this man. All in all, the more you find out about Barry, the more you will simply have to like this guy; the guy that stays calm and clear-minded, wins millions of dollars and, after that, shows his heart by donating 100% of his tournament winnings to charity.

It would be difficult to find anyone in the world of poker who could be compared with Barry Greenstein. Barry is not a showman, like storyteller Amarillo Slim or controversial Phil Hellmuth; he is just a man, who plays for winning and wins for giving. A true Robin Hood in modern poker (it’s one of his nicknames, “The Robin Hood of Poker”).

Barry donates money won to help save children. A very worth and noble cause, by a very quiet, unobstrusive man with a big heart.

Barry looks very shy and cautious when he's seated at the poker table. His appearance is completely deceiving as you soon come to underand you understand.

Barry Greenstein has an impressive collection of trophies, which includes a World Poker Open title, other $1 million tournaments and, of course, WSOP bracelet. A collection, which may seem to be weaker than some other players have, but in fact it is not the main criteria for judging Barry’s career. No trophies can describe how big this man’s impact in the world of poker (and in the outer world too) is. His kind heart is the best trophy the game of poker could ever have.
