Billionaire David Einhorn Uses Poker Skills in Business and Vice Versa

Published on 11 July 2014 by Pokerlistings 377

David Einhorn is a fantastically successful hedge fund manager whose net worth is estimated at $1.6 billion. He's also a passionate poker player and he told PokerListings.com that he uses many of the same skills to succeed both in business and at the poker table. Einhorn has pledged 100% of his poker winnings to charity and in 2012 he was able to donate his entire $4.5 million prize from finishing third in the WSOP Big One for One Drop. This year Einhorn was the first player eliminated from the One Drop but he's back and has made it into the money in the $10,000 Main Event. Einhorn had a seriously deep run in the Main Event in 2006, finishing 18th, and he'll be looking to beat that result this year. Einhorn speaks thoughtfully and frankly about poker, business and where he thinks the United States is headed.
