Paul Britton, the Chief Executive of Capstone Holdings Group LLC, won the fourth annual Take ’Em To School Poker Tournament. Britton played for five-and-a-half hours alongside World Series of Poker legend Erik Seidel, David Einhorn of Greenlight Capital Inc., Whitney Tilson of Kase Capital and a soon-to-be teacher at Columbia University.
“I was lucky, very lucky,” Paul Britton admitted right after his victory at Gotham Hall in Manhattan. “I only play poker one night a year — and it’s this tournament.”
The tournament benefitted a very worthy cause: Education Reform Now, the nonprofit organization that champions academic excellence and growth in public schools.
