Paul Britton, CEO of Capstone Holdings Group, Wins 4th Annual Take ’Em To School Poker Tournament

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.
