As it turns out, those Las Vegas regulars like Doyle Brunson, Chip Reese, and Stuey Ungar were pretty decent at playing cards and Eli’s early trips didn’t go so well.Never one to be easily deterred, the poker bug had sunk its sharp little teeth into Eli and wasn’t letting go.Despite doing very well for himself financially in his time in Alaska, Eli got a surprising phone call and offer from his brother that forever changed his life.In today’s conversation with Eli Elezra, you’re going to learn:The story behind Eli’s biggest winning and losing sessions (Both are north of 7 figures).What it was really like playing with legends Stu Ungar and Chip Reese.The origin story of legendary poker tv show High Stakes Poker.And much, MUCH more!So without any further ado, I bring to you the fearless and singular Eli Elezra.
