The bellybuttons, not the bellybutton cushion. The players who remove more from the diversion than they put in. The stars. The jade pearls you find on the shoreline among the scrabble testing the quality of the bottoms of your feet. Among this world class gathering, vision just extends the extent that the hand they are playing. Inheritance is left for symbols of the diversion like Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu.

Elias told the press after his win:
I figure I do well against the American geniuses and American recreational players who play in these more so than the European players.
You don't win four WPT titles without fortunes as a moving accomplice, and this occasion was no special case. At the point when three-gave, Elias got it in with A2cc versus the AQdd of Joe McKeehen, just to spike a two to wipe out the previous World Series of Poker Main Event Champ, and set up a heads-up experience with Kitty Kuo.
