Re: A STATEMENT FROM ELI ELEZRA

Pretty decent statement. More then expected.

The responses in this thread are laughable. Never was I more convinced that a high percentage of the people posting in these threads live in their moms basement. It's like they have no clue about real world.

Obviously not everyone, but at least 50% of the responses in this thread seem to be from young people with very little real life experience.

Re: A STATEMENT FROM ELI ELEZRA

First, to Eli - Sababa

Next, this whole situation reminds me of something similar that happened to me. Back in the early 2000's I was playing in a prelim event in the Aruba Classic with a "semi-famous" pro. We had a good time and he then asked me if I could loan him 10k for 1 day. Knowing his name (and not knowing better) I said sure.

The next day, I see him playing in a cash game and walk over to ask for my money - he says "yeah, sorry I need some more time" and basically ignores me. A guy that I had played with in live tourneys (and seemed to know everyone) walks over and whispers in his ear - he looks startled gets up, comes back 5 minutes later and hands me my 10k.

Background, in those days I was a prosecutor and often used my badge as a card protector (tacky, I know). Anyway, I went up to the "whisperer" and asked him what did you say to him. He responded I just said "It's pretty stupid to try to steal from a guy with a badge". I laughed and bought him dinner.

Prior to that I assumed that there was some kind of "poker player's code" regarding borrowing money. Of course, I never lent money to a poker player again.

Re: A STATEMENT FROM ELI ELEZRA

I think it’s funny the perception people have of lending money in a casino. There are countless reasons people would have to borrow money at a casino and I’ve probably been pod back >99% of the time. Lots of times if you aren’t willing to loan money the game will break and if everyone has the same naive approach of never loan money games will stop running.

That doesn’t mean loan to anybody that asks or not to be smart about it but to have a position that someone deserves to get stiffed for taking a stupid risk or anything similar is an absurd position unless you are playing in games where you can easily access 4 buy-ins from the atm without reaching a daily limit

I canít imagine it either, but thatís because I canít imagine a world where money doesnít really have any meaning because every month somebody gives me a pile of it for no real reason and itís going to keep happening forever, and I spend all day with other people being given their own piles of money and we pass that money around a table.

Then one day...whoa, it all has A LOT of meaning again and I am NOT prepared for that.

Re: A STATEMENT FROM ELI ELEZRA

Apparently, you have to be a perfect human being to not endorse theft. Also, stealing is part of growing up. I seriously wonder what type of person would be so lax about scammers.

Re: A STATEMENT FROM ELI ELEZRA

We will be posting a statement about Eli Elezra as soon as I hear back from my lawyers. The statement he made is sham as I know it.

The content will not only be my story but will include threatening and alot of texts and etc he has made in the past few years about the sensational substantial amount of money he owes me and possibly about many others.

He has given me no choice to do this and has taken to far

Most of the responses in this thread seem very reasonable to me.

Eli's statement was full of crap, and in fact took a very entitled "You knew I may not pay you back when you loaned me the money" attitude, which was quite off-putting.

BTW, I'm nowhere near being a "young person". I'm a few years away from 50.

I bet we've got the gist already....Some poker players loaned another poker player some money and haven't been paid back in full. Does that about sum it up?

How about we just start a containment thread of all whiny posts from poker players who are owed money from other poker players?

Oh the shock and horror when such high-quality credit loans turn sour........

Eli most likely owes 1000 ppl including the good doctor, he couldn’t move down stakes, they wouldn’t respect his raises

Cole was drawing dead to get a cent anyway, if Eli was going to pay anything he'd at least ship like $3K right now "to get things back on track"

What caused issue with me was his answers in the AMA, I haven't read Eli's book. If youíve left a negative Amazon review on the book due to reading these threads, please do me a favor and remove it so we can keep the discussion here. Thanks all.
This isn't going to end well for Eli, once everyone sees publicly shaming him on here kinda worked I imagine people will be coming out of the woodwork.

Ha, guess I need to finish reading the thread before posting.

I've dealt with too many sociopaths like this, I really enjoy watching the public evisceration of one.
