David Einhorn is once again competing in the World Series of Poker Championship in Las Vegas. He is set to play in the One Drop High Roller tournament. Last year, he finished at third place and won $4.35 million which he donated to CityYear. The organization works to ensure that  students finish high school, and attempts to reduce the dropout rate. Last year, the tournament had 48 entrants, a number which has almost tripled this year with 122 entrants that have so far registered. David Einhorn will donate all his winnings to Playworks this year, a non profit organization which is working to transform schools and provide healthy physical activities and reduce bullying in schools.

Toby Lewis opened for 2,800 from early position and received calls from David Einhorn and Tom “durrrr” Dwan in the cutoff and button respectively. After both blinds folded, the flop came down clostclostclost and Lewis fired out 7,000.

Einhorn quickly folded, Dwan called and the dealer burned and turned the clost. Lewis thought for about 20 seconds before betting 16,000 and Dwan took about half as long to release his hand.

With around 75,000 in the pot and a board reading clostclostclostclost, David Einhorn checked from the big blind and Bryn Kenney did the same from the button. When the clost completed the board on the river, Einhorn tossed out a bet of 38,000 and Kenney called. Einhorn tabled the clostclost for a pair of tens and it was good as Kenney sent his cards to the muck. 247,00077,000 David Einhorn From World Series of Poker 2013 Live 199,000-51,000

“Wow, He Just Called”

David Einhorn raised to 5,000 in early position, Toby Lewis called on the button, and Paul Klann defended his big blind. The dealer fanned clostclostclost, Klann checked, and Einhorn continued for 12,000. Only Lewis called. The turn was the clost, Einhorn though for a bit then led out for 30,000, and Lewis called. The river was a repeat jack – the clost – and Einhorn fired a third and final bullet worth 80,000. “How much do you have left?” the Brit asked Einhorn. Einhorn didn’t budge, so Tom Dwan leaned over to get a look. “About one-sixty,” he told Lewis. Lewis reached for chips, and tossed enough forward to make the call. Einhorn turned over clostclost for aces full of jacks, and Lewis frowned before revealing clostclost for jacks full of aces. “Wow,” Alex Venovski said under his breath. “Wow,” Einhorn echoed. “He just called?” He turned to Dwan. “He just called,” Einhorn repeated. “I thought he had kings.” 425,000178,000 David Einhorn From World Series of Poker 2013 Live 247,000-158,000

This is the only hand we have info on: Roger Sippl, Brandon Steven, and Davin Einhorn took a flop of clostclostclost. The trio checked, and the turn brought the clost. Sippl led out for 22,000, Steven raised to 75,000, and Einhorn folded. Sippl moved all in for nearly 200,000, and Steven snap-called. Sippl: clostclost Steven: clostclost “Whoa,” said a few players at the table when they saw the hands. Steven held as the clost bricked on the river, and Sippl was eliminated. 7:55PM EST: From middle position, Byron Kaverman raised to 20,000. Bill Perkins made the call from the hijack seat moments after hugging his friend and fell player David Einhorn who had just taken the seat next to him. Action then folded to Andrew Robl in the big blind, he tanked, then three-bet to 90,000. Kaverman got out of the way rather quickly, but Perkins wanted to think for a bit. Eventually, he too have it up, and Robl won the pot. “I was either shipping or folding,” commented Perkins to Robl after releasing his hand. “I had no ship juice.” “You had no ship juice?” asked Einhorn with a smile. “Nope, no ship juice,” responded Perkins. “Do they sell that at the cafeteria?” asked Einhorn to Perkins. “Good question,” answered Perkins. “I may need to go get some.”
