Barry Greenstein’s car stolen in San Diego

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Aug 09, 2011 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

This weekend Barry Greenstein took what seemed like a really bad beat, and it happened at the valet parking line at the San Diego Mission Hills Marriott where Barry Greenstein, the “Robin Hood of Poker”, found his Aston martin DB9 had been stolen from the valet parking lot while Greenstein was playing at the nearby Palomino Card Club.

Greenstein took the Twitterverse –hopefully AFTER notifying the authorities—to hopefully find his lost automobile: “I don’t think twitter can help with this but you never know: my Aston Martin DB9 was stolen from valet parking!”

Apparently the valet had made a mistake and given the car to someone else, perhaps the one person in the world who would be handed the keys to an Astin Martin and do what he did… The “thief” decided to give Greenstein’s car a thorough cleaning and then parked it in the self-park area of the hotel! When he was apprehended he said he was told to detail the car.

PokerNews.com is reporting that the perpetrators mother claims he has mental issues –which seems pretty believable considering all he did was drive it to another parking and then detail the thing!—and Greenstein’s follow-up Tweet seems to imply the same: “The guy detailed the car, inside also. I feel bad for him. Normal person would have dropped it off somewhere,”

So, it seems that even when his car gets stolen, Barry Greenstein runs really good!
