Known in the industry as the ‘Robin Hood of Poker’ since 2006, Greenstein devolves all his tournament earnings to charity associations. Yet, although the impressive successes he scored in his career as a tournament player since the 1990s, Greenstein has always been primarily a cash game player.
Until 2003, Greenstein remained a relatively unknown name as he did not participate in the big games happening in Las Vegas, but preferred to play and develop his games in Los Angeles, where he became formidable in the lowball variants 2-7 and Ace-to-Five.
Things changed after his friend Sailor Roberts, who was considered to be the best cash game player in low ball games in Las Vegas, played against him in California and invited him to put his skills to test in Sin City. “You will kill them, it will be a bloodbath,” Roberts told him. “These players in Vegas think they are the best in the world.”

Yet, the Chicago-born Greenstein decided not to follow Roberts’s suggestion right away and waited a few more years before he decided to show up in Las Vegas and challenge the players who were part of those games.
Once in Sin City, however, Greenstein finally put his already solid bankroll to a good use and joined the city’s cash game getting the very same success that Roberts predicted.
