Gal Erlichman – 2014 WSOP Poker Player Profile

3

Just like in 2013 when Amir Lehavot, an originally a citizen of the country, made the WSOP November Nine, Israel had one hope left if it were to earn another berth in the 2014 World Series of Poker final table. That is Gal Erlichman, another transplanted Israeli who lives in the United States, who came into Day 6 of the $10,000 buy-in tournament with 1.65 million in chips and in 50th place. He ultimately finished in 37th place for $186,000, the last player eliminated before the payout jumped to $230,000.

Entering his Main Event run in 2014, Erlichman had mixed success in his four years of tournament poker. It started in 2010 with his first WSOP cash in a $1,000 No Limit Hold’em event and he added six more cashes over the next four years, including a second WSOP resume mark.

That said, Erlichman’s career earnings of slightly more than $13,000 were extremely boosted by his performance in the 2014 Main Event.

On Day 2AB of the tournament, Erlichman was mired way down the leaderboard in 237th place, but he was sitting on a respectable stack of 129,400 in chips. He tiptoed his way through the first combined day of the Main Event, Day 3, coming out of the day’s action in 406th place with 194,500 in chips and still alive. Erlichman actually fell back on Day 4, dropping to 148,000 in chips, before multiplying his stack over tenfold on Day 5 to reach his starting plateau for Day 6.

On PocketFives, the Israel poker community had 342 registered players as of the start of the 2014 WSOP Main Event who had combined for $30.4 million in career online winnings. The group had accounted for $2.8 million in the three months leading up to the WSOP Main Event in 2014 and had generated nearly 70,000 tracked in the money finishes all-time.

With a lot of respect to Gal Erlichman but still he is not representing Israel poker community ,, nobody in the community know who he is ,, our last hope was Timorm1(ranked 1st in PocketFives Israel) that had a deep and impressive run and finished on 120 place,,, also u should add a WSOP Bracelet Badge to Raistj🙂

      Can you ask Raistj to add his real name to his P5s profile and we’ll add a bracelet badge?
