Eli Elezra entered the Poker Hall of Fame
Recently, the voting for the new member of the Poker Hall of Fame has been conducted at WSOP.com.
Everyone had opportunity to vote for one candidate out of 10 nominees until mid-October.
After the voting completed, the current members of the Poker Hall of Fame finally chose a candidate of equal strength. This issue is about poker pro from the United States – Eli Elezra.
The new member commented on his triumph and said that he started playing poker in 1985. However, he didn't do it well in the early years. Despite this, Elezra traveled his long poker path with legends such as Chip Reese, Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Barry Greenstein, Phil Hellmuth, Daniel Negreanu, and this experience became a valuable asset for him.
Eli Elezra became the 60th member of the Poker Hall of Fame. Throughout his poker career, he earned $4 596 290 in live tournaments. Eli is the owner of four WSOP bracelets, and his biggest prize money is considered the sum of $1 024 570 for the victory in $10 200 Mirage Poker Showdown in 2004.
