The money he gave to charities occured years ago. He's admitted he long ago had to stop giving all the winnings because the cash games have dried up. Barry also admited to Michael Craig years ago that he didn't keep money around for long. He spends it.
The reality is that he propably can't just write a check and pay this off without some difficulty. There's a good chance he filed this in his head under, "FU guys, you didn't offer me **** when you paying out to a bunch of no-names. I'll pay you if I bink the ME. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until I clear people that have any value to me."
