If you're part of poker's newer generation, you might not recognize the name Perry Green, but you should. The man is literally a living poker legend with World Series of Poker cashes dating back to 1976.
In fact, Green has three gold bracelets to his name:
- 1976 $1,000 Limit Ace to Five Draw for $68,300
- 1977 $5,000 Limit Ace to Five Draw for $10,000
- 1979 $1,500 No Limit Hold'em-Non Pro for $76,500
In addition, Green finished runner-up to the legendary Stuey Ungar in the 1981 WSOP Main Event, which earned him a cool $150,000. All told, Green has 23 WSOP cashes totaling $592,709, with his most recent cash coming in this year's Seniors Event where he took 217th place for $2,786.
One last interesting fact, this marks the first time Green has cashed in the Main Event since 1991 when he placed fifth for $69,000 and his fourth Main Event cash overall.
