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.
