The winner of the Seven-Card Stud High-Low Split World Championship was Eli Elezra. He is a 46-year-old poker player and investor from Henderson, NV. Elezra holds duel-citizenship and also has personal connections to his native Israel. Elezra was born in Jerusalem. He once served as a commando in the Israeli Army. Elezra's victory was a real crowd pleaser. He's been a regular WSOP attendee since 1999, yet had not won a gold bracelet until now. Elezra received a standing ovation from players when he was announced as the winner inside the expansive WSOP tournament room. The heads-up match between Elezra and Scotty Nguyen was a poker entertainment at its very finest. The players started drinking beer together at the table and bantered constantly. The jovial nature of the proceedings masked what was a phenomenal heads-up confrontation. Elezra started off the duel with a 2 to 1 chip lead. But Nguyen reversed the lead over the next half hour and appeared primed to deliver a final knock-out punch. Elezra clawed back to even and then went on to win the tournament. His winning hand was an ace-high straight.
