Jul 15 2014 | 10:48am ET

Greenlight Capital founder David Einhorn’s World Series of Poker won’t end at the event’s final table.

The hedge fund manager busted on Saturday at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, ending the tournament in 173rd place. Einhorn tweeted that he was “sadly all done” after he “couldn’t find another miracle.” He added that the event was “lots of fun” and that he had no regrets.

Einhorn finished in 18th place at the 2006 WSOP. This year, he won $44,728, all of which will go to the Robin Hood Foundation.
