Greg Jensen: His earnings during the PCA paid to the victims of the Newtown massacre

The cruelty of the killing of Newtown on December 14, perpetrated in Sandy Hook Elementary school continues to affect lots of people, even poker players. This was the case of Greg Jensen who made a great achievement in the Super High Roller of the Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure (PCA). Indeed, for his 6 th place in the tournament, he won a $ 286,200 gain. But he did not pocketed it, he preferred to pay the full amount to the victims of the massacre in this primary school in Connecticut. Jensen traveled to the Bahamas after receiving as a gift the ticket to the main event of the PCA. Arrived at his destination, the poker enthusiast of 40 years decided to have fun by participating in the Super High Roller tournament which brought together 47 players. His great performance in this event was the trigger that prompted this man working in the world of finance to make this act of generosity.

For information, Jensen is a young leader in the world of finance. This co-president of Bridgewater Associates joined the top 5 of the 40 leaders under 40 years published by CNN in two consecutive years. His Connecticut company is expanding. And the use of this donated of approximately $ 300,000 remains unknown for the school because of the divergence of opinion among parents of Sandy Hook Elementary. If some are for the final closure of the school, other look for its reopening and require the construction of a memorial stone.
