PokerStars is giving you a chance to learn from one of the best for free.
You'll need a healthy 60,000 Frequent Player Points to get there, but for a Masterclass HORSE single-table tournament with Barry Greenstein, it's worth it.
Greenstein, after all, is one of poker's best no matter how you measure him. Cash games? He plays for the highest stakes all over the world and has won millions. Tournaments? He holds two bracelets in the World Series of Poker and has cashed 31 times and also has two titles in the World Poker Tour. Prestige? He's the author of one of poker's most popular instruction books, "Ace on the River" and is a member of Team PokerStars.
Maybe no other pro is more qualified to teach the five games of HORSE, as his 31 cashes in the WSOP come from 11 different disciplines.
At 4 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday, May 25, Greenstein will hold his third Masterclass with a $7,500 prize pool (so you have a chance at a pretty sweet cash while you learn something). The participants will also receive a signed copy of Greenstein's book, and you won't even have to bust him to get it (Greenstein is known for giving those who bust him from a live tournament a copy of his book).
To play in Barry Greenstein’s Masterclass, go to the PokerStars lobby. Click on Tournaments, and then VIP.
Barry will answer questions throughout the tournament. He will show his hole cards after most hands. And he'll chat about why he played the hands he did.
If you would rather spend those 60,000 player points on a truckload of stress balls, you can watch the replay of the tournament, with all the hole cards face-up, at 4 p.m. Eastern Time Sunday, June 1.
Greenstein is also known as the Robin Hood of Poker for donating millions of his tournament winnings to charity, and any money won by Greenstein in this tournament will indeed be donated to the Children, Incorporated charity.
