Barry Greenstein is known as the “Robin Hood of Poker” because he donates a percentage of profits to charity and, fortunately for those charities, there are a lot of profits to donate. Greenstein has been a mainstay on the poker since the early nineties. A proficient cash and tournament player, he has picked up three WSOP bracelets and two WPT titles along the way, amassing, as of January 2013, $7.7m in prize money.
Greenstein is the author of the book Ace on the River, a signed copy of which he awards to any player that knocks him out of a tournament.
