2005 WSOP Event #19: $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha

, 2005-06-23, by TwoGun

Submitted by: Ozone

Many are familiar with Barry Greenstein, who is known as the "Robin Hood of Poker". Barry received this nickname because he donates all of his tournament winnings to children's charities.

After Event #19, Barry's charities have another $181,300 coming their way. The only thing Barry will keep from this tournament is the coveted gold bracelet, which is the 2nd one he's earned through the course of his career.

Former bracelet winner Toto Leonidas made his 2nd final table appearance of the year and finished 4th. Another well known name making his 2nd final table of the year, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, went out in 7th place.

Phil Hellmuth Jr. also added a final table appearance to his career totals. Hellmuth, in dire search for his 10th career bracelet, placed tenth in this tournament.
