David Einhorn Knocked From World Series of Poker WSOP

Despite starting the second day with 94K in chips, hedge fund manager David Einhorn knocked from World Series of Poker (WSOP). We don’t know how he lost. Here is what Dealbook wrote:


Wearing the same sweatshirt covered in his family’s painted handprints that he wore at the 2006 tournament, Mr. Einhorn was among the 3,400 competitors leaving Sin City at least $10,000 lighter (the buy-in for the Texas Hold ‘Em Championship tournament.) The tournament drew 6,865 players this year, among them the Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce, the actor Ray Romano and a host of former tournament champions. The winner gets $8.7 million.

Mr. Einhorn, one of the founders of Greenlight Capital, has an affinity for the card game. In 2006, he finished 18th in the tournament, earning more than $600,000, which he donated to charity. This is only his second time playing in the tournament.
