Charity Poker Event Featuring David Einhorn, Bill Perkins To Air Wednesday Night

Single-Table Tournament Features A $50,000 Buy-In


Tomorrow (Wednesday Oct. 23) at 9 p.m. EST Bloomberg TV will air a single-table charity poker tournament featuring some poker-playing Wall Street titans.

The $50,000 buy-in is dubbed “Poker Night On Wall Street” and was hosted at the Borgata in Atlantic City — New Jersey’s top casino.

Among the players are David Einhorn and Bill Perkins, two players who are familiar faces in some of the biggest poker tournaments in the world.

Both Einhorn and Perkins have fared well at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.

Einhorn has $5,011,730 in scores there, while Perkins has $1,965,163. Perkins made news in the poker world recently for betting poker pro Jeff Gross $550,000 he wouldn’t get a tattoo of Perkins’ choosing. Gross went through with it and pocketed a massive sum.

The $50,000 event is winner-take-all.
