Perry Green (b. c. 1936) is a American poker player who has won three World Series of Poker bracelets and who has made it to the final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event twice.[2]

Green, a former fur trader from Anchorage, Alaska, began playing at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in the 1970s and won his first bracelet in 1976 in the $1000 Ace to Five Draw event. In the following year he won his second bracelet in the $5000 Ace to Five event and then in 1979 he won his third WSOP bracelet in the $1,500 No Limit Texas Hold'em event in which he defeated Jim Bechtel during heads-up play.[2]

In addition to his three bracelets, Green's largest payday to date in a poker tournament was at the 1981 World Series of Poker Main Event where he finished in second place earning $150,000 after he had been beaten by the then reigning champion Stu Ungar in heads-up play. Ten years later at the 1991 WSOP Main Event he made a second final table finishing in fifth place.[2]

Green has been active in a so far unsuccessful effort to legalize casino poker in Alaska.[1]

As of 2008, his total live tournament winnings exceed $800,000.[3]
