Hi Everyone:

This is a rare opportunity to ask an ultra-high stakes player who has seen it all, anything you like. Eli has promised to answer any question, and don't forget his autobiography Pulling the Trigger:

Best wishes,
Mason

If you could go back the last 20 years and change one thing that you did, whether it be a specific choice or a general theme, what would it be?

Re: ask me anything -eli elezra

What are some insights or revelations you had along the way that made you become a better or more profitable NLHE player?

Is there one particularly important key or secret to the game that you think other players miss?

Did you play/meet Stu Ungar? What was he like and was he bad at cash if you did?

Re: ask me anything -eli elezra

Woot woot! Thanks for doing this Mr. Elezra!



Do you like Stud Hi / Stud8 better than Hold Em or Omaha?

It seems alot of pros like Stud, how come recs haven't picked up on it yet?

Do you think we will ever see a resurgence of Stud?

Thanks again!

Change nothing in my personal life but change in poker by playing more WSOP events and win more bracelets.

Re: ask me anything -eli elezra

Where did you originally get the money to play high stakes?

Did you grind your way up or did you have money from a previous occupation?

sub question: What percent of yourself do you typically have when you play in the big game?

Re: ask me anything -eli elezra

Regarding Hellmuth's chances in those tv cashgames (high stakes poker, poker after dark, the big game, etc), how did you rate him at the time, and what about now, looking back?
