Bess Levin Plays Poker With David Einhorn

einhorn 3 Bess Levin Plays Poker With David EinhornDealbreaker’s Bess Levin, twisted genius of the financial blogosphere, sat down to play heads-up poker with Greenlight Capital’s David Einhorn in what is probably the most adventurous stopover on Mr. Einhorn’s promotional tour for the latest edition of his Fooling Some of the People All of the Time.

The result is an incredible Q&A between a legendary predictor of the financial crisis and the world’s most serious journalist who also regularly makes sex jokes. As you can imagine, hilarity ensues:

BL: You mentioned an unexpected and tremendous response from readers of the book the first time around. What’s the craziest piece of fan mail you’ve gotten- has anyone sent you their undergarments in the mail?
DE: [laughs] No, do you think they should?
BL: Sure.
DE: You’re hysterical.
BL: I mean, people do that. Musicians, rock stars get sent that sort of stuff. You’re like a rock star…of investing.
DE: Well, the thing is, my following [for the most part] is with 20 to 35 year old men. So, you know. I definitely don’t want their undergarments.

Read the whole thing.
