Vectile masters the Barry Greenstein Masterclass

May 26, 2008

It’s quite a proposition for any player with 60,000 Frequent Player Points to spend them all on a single table HORSE tournament. It’s something else entirely to do it at the table with one of the best poker players in the world. As PokerStars player vectile sat down for the Barry Greenstein Masterclass today, he indicated that even those closest to him didn’t have an extreme level of confidence in his chances.

“The wife says I’m crazy to waste my FPP vs. you,” he told Greenstein as the event began.

But with a lot of skill, a little luck, and quads twice, vectile (complete with his Jesus Loves You player icon) took down the event for $3,750.

If you’re not aware, Barry Greestein’s Masterclass allows PokerStars players to sit down with one of the best for 60,000 FPPs. Real cash and a lot of pride are on the line. Greenstein offers tips and shows his cards as often as he can. When it’s all said and done, PokerStars replays the event with all the hole cards exposed so as many people as possible can see how a master plays. This is what today’s lineup looked like.


Greenstein did not fare as well as he might have hoped today, finishing in seventh place. Vectile, however, no matter that he was a watching a Discovery Channel Greatest Catch marathon and dealing with his wife’s lack of confidence, took down the whole event. It was a good win, but maybe not enough to satisfy all of his wife’s desires.

“She wants to go to Europe,” he said. “I gotta win more than this, unless they start using Euros on here.”
