What is Barry Greenstein’s Net Worth?
Barry Greenstein is a native American proficient poker player and a member of Team PokerStars Pro. He was born on December 30, 1954 in Chicago. After his graduation from high school, Barry earned his BSc in Computer Science in just three years. Barry’s youthful days led him through a very strict academic path that also included enrollment for his PhD (Mathematics). Besides being an academically excellent student, Barry was also very active in sports as a youth and in his early teens he took up golf and earned extra money caddying. He is considered a true legend of poker, and one of the most successful high stakes cash game players of all time.
Barry dropped his chances to have a lucrative career in the software industry when he realized that there was a fortune to be made elsewhere. He resigned from his job as a software developer with Symantec – creators of Norton Anti Virus. He first learnt poker from his father, and then during his college years and during his leisure time during his working years. Widely recognized as “The Robin Hood of Poker”, Barry can be described as small and unassuming, and he is neither a man who inspires fear nor intimidates. But poker players beware: Barry doesn’t steal money from the rich; he steals pots from fish. He never seems to lose his cool at the table, even if he does lose the occasional $1 million pot on an episode of High Stakes Poker. His analytical and calculated approach to the game has made him a feared bull by the other members of any table he sits down at.
Barry Greenstein’s hard work and dedication in putting in long hours at the felt has enabled him to win a considerably good number of lucrative events. These include:
