The hedge fund manager surprised many by outlasting numerous high-profile poker pros to finally take third place for $4.3 million at the BIG ONE final table yesterday.
When asked if Einhorn was happier about his achievement as a poker player or the money he raised for City Year, he couldn’t decide.
“The whole experience,” he said busting in third. “Everyone wins.”
City Year was established in 1988 and has since partnered with high need public schools to assist students.
“City Year improves cultures in schools,” explained Einhorn. “Now they will be able to expand.”
