Barry Greenstein is not only known for being an extremely good and successful poker player, but also for being one of the poker world's most generous players. In fact, Greenstein has received the nickname '"The Robin Hood of Poker" thanks to all the money he has donated to charity, mainly to charities for children, throughout the years. In total, he has won over $7 million dollars in tournaments and probably even more in cash games, so one can only imagine how much money he has donated.
So, what does a successful poker pro like Barry Greenstein do and think about when he's not busy winning money that he can donate? The answer is simple: he's thinking about poker. Below are parts taken from a brand new Barry Greenstein interview with one of Sweden's leading newspapers.
What does money mean to you?
"I don't care so much for money and titles. If I know that I have played good that's enough to make myself happy," Barry Greenstein says.
Do you have any other interest than poker?
Of course I have, but not right now. During the WSOP it's all about poker. Poker and sleeping. Nothing else. That's my way of staying focused.
What do you think about the Main Event?
I don't think that far at the moment. I only focus on the next 2 hours. Right now I'm playing in a tournament, so that's what I'm focusing on.
