Greenwood did win the $50,000 High Roller at the Aussie Millions just prior to unleashing his wrath.

He tweeted out:

PokerNews.com explained the matter that got under Greenwood's skin:

A poker tournament can only get started when enough players have bought in. If a tournament starts with not enough players, the tournament could be over before the scheduled late registration closes when players get knocked out at too rapid a pace. For most regular tournaments, this isn't much of an issue as enough players sign up well before play is to get underway. For bigger buy-in events, which naturally have much smaller field sizes, this is not the case. Therefore, Super High Roller events often get underway later than originally planned.

Often enough, players who are contemplating to buy-in to big buy-in events, first want to see who's signing up before they wager their money. But with those players sitting out, some events never get off the ground at all.
