Barry’s strongest subjects at school were mathematics and computer science. After graduating from Bogan High School, he obtained his bachelor’s in computer science from the University of Illinois. He also tried to obtain a PhD in mathematics, but did not complete his thesis as he prefered to spend his time at the poker tables.
