Posted on 18 February 2013 by "T".

Open-Face Chinese poker has become very popular over the past 1-2 years or so. Barry Greenstein is relatively new to the game and recently played it online using a popular App for iPhone/iPad.

"I was told then by some people that many were playing Open-Face Chinese on an app that's available for iPhones and the iPad. So when I got home I downloaded the app, and I started playing just for fun against some people. You can even play against the app itself," Greenstein wrote on his latest blog.

Tags: barry greenstein, California, joe sebok, poker pro, stepfather, stepson, wine, winery
Posted on 02 January 2013 by "T".

The American poker pro Joe Sebok, 35, has almost $2 million in live tournament earnings (no major title) and was well liked for several years when he was known more as Barry Greenstein's stepson than a poker pro.

It has been very quiet from Sebok in the past year or so and the question is if he ever will win a major tournament title - because, according to a recent interview, he spent last year at Vinify, a premium custom crush winery in Santa Rosa, California, where he worked really hard and lost almost 17 pounds during the last 3-month harvest.

Barry Greenstein: "sometimes finding the best game means traveling"

Tags: atlantic city, barry greenstein, girlfriend, las vegas, los angeles, philadelphia, poker, travel
Posted on 29 November 2012 by "T".

On Wednesday, Barry "the Robin Hood of poker" Greenstein posted a blog on traveling to find the best games in poker. Barry wrote that he hasn't been traveling much as of late and as a result of that he has missed out on many good games.

"One of the things that I haven't done recently as much as I should have is travel to play in good games. When I was younger and single, if there was a good poker situation I found out where it was and went there, because I was free to travel. I just hopped on a plane, had some contacts, and got in the game.

Tags: 2012 pca, bahamas, barry greenstein, faraz jaka
Posted on 12 January 2012 by "T".

Faraz Jaka, who lead the way into 3 day, is once again back in the lead as Day 4 of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure main event has come to an end with 24 remaining players. Faraz turned his 1,22 million stack into a monstrous 4,1 million stack during Day 4 - about 1,4 million more chips than his closest opponent Alex Fritzgerald.

Unfortunately Team PokerStars Pro Berry Greenstein was knocked out in 25th place for $46k. This was far from the first time that "The Robin Hood of Poker" went deep in a major tournament but missed out on the big cash. We can only wish him better luck next time.

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.

Posted on 18 October 2010 by "T".

The WPT Festa Al Lago Main Event attracted a quite big starting field and lots of big names in the poker world when it kicked off on Friday last week. Not less than 335 players paid the buy-in of $10,300 and created a big prize pool. Now three days have passed we're down to 41 players. All of them are already in the money but of course everyone is aiming for the WPT title and the first prize of $831,500.

Players who have a good chance of making it to the final table and all the way to the tile, as it seems right now, are Steve O´Dwyer (844,500), Jeff Madsen (814,000) and Randal Flowers (795,000). All of them have played very well so far and they have the experience to take down a big tournament. There are a few other big names left in the tournament as well, but further down in the field of remaining players. Just to mention 3 of them, Annette Obrestad (395,000), Barry Greenstein (210,000) and Gavin Smith (75,000).

Posted on 04 August 2010 by "T".

He's one of the richest and most successful poker players in the world, he masters all the major poker games, he's as good at playing tournaments as cash games - both live and online. Phil Ivey is the ultimate poker player and probably also the most famous one in the world right now.

So what are the downsides of being rich and famous in the poker world? Well, it doesn't seem to be a walk in the park at all times. At the 2010 WSOP for example, Phil Ivey had to hire a bodyguard because people didn't let him be alone for 1 single minute.

In the month of September, Thuy Doan went public with a very sad message in her blog - she had been diagnosis with cancer. Since Thuy Doan was diagnosed with cancer, she has been a break from the poker scene, but still she has continued writing in her blog about her fight against the cancer.

Now, a few months later, 16 of the world's best poker players (Doyle Brunson, Eli Elezra, Barry Greenstein, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, Bertrand "ElkY", and Grospellier - just to mention a few) shaved their heads in soldiery for her. This really shows that even after all the success these players have had, they still have huge hearts and care for other people.
