Eli Elezra is a professional poker player that was born in Israel and now makes his home in Las Vegas Nevada. His nickname is "Mr. Vegas". The way he became a poker player was that before moving to the states he used to be in the Golani Brigade, which is much like the Green Berets, as a lieutenant and after he was injured was bedridden. During that time Elezra learned how to play poker. Since making the move to the United States Eli Elezra has won in the money many times. His biggest payday to date was when he won the World Poker Tour (WPT) $10,000 No Limit Hold'em event at the 2004 Mirage Poker Showdown, where won a cool $1,024,574.

Eli Elezra captured hi first poker bracelet, as he was the winner of the 2007 World Series of Poker World Championship Seven Card Stud Hi-Low in 2007. He defeated the Scotty Nguyen heads up to win the prestigious WSOP bracelet. An interesting side not to the win is that he placed a side bet with fellow player Barry Greenstein giving him 10:1 odds that he would win. Elezra wagered $25,000 and since he won he collected $250,000, which was more than he won from winning the event itself. In his career he has netted three first place finishes in tournaments and has cashed in 18 times.
