David Levi is a player I used to
run into often. It took me awhile to strike up a friendship with him because when I would see him at tournaments, we would never be seated
at the same table. When we would go on break and he was away from the table, he would always have his cell phone stuck to his ear.
Although it took me awhile to get to know him, he is one of my favorite players. I suppose it could have something to do
with a comment he once made. I asked: "Who are some of your favorite tournament players?" He responded, "You are
my favorite player. You are my favorite Omaha tournament player." He knows how to get a favorable bio on my site!
Actually, I would have given him one anyway because he is such a nice guy and I enjoy the conversations we have. Whenever we
have the opportunity, we sit down and discuss what is going on in each other's lives. Since poker is a big part of both our
lives, we usually talk about it. I have learned that David is very grounded and has gained a lot of knowledge in the years
he has played poker. I have seen many players make the same mistakes over and over again. David is definitely not one of
them. He not only learns from his own mistakes, but learns by observing others.

David is very successful at tournaments. He started playing many years ago in the smaller buy-in events and has worked his
way up to the big time. He travels often and I don't see him very much in the L.A. casinos anymore. When I do see him, he is
often playing in the higher limit Stud games.
Levi once lived with fellow tournament player, Amir Vahedi.
He is originally from Israel and used to be a professional soccer player. Seven Card Stud seems to be the game David has had the
most success with and has several first place finishes. He has also had great success in some No Limit tournaments as well
as other games. He told me that he won a event with more than 500 players in it (at the time he told me, 500 was a HUGE
field). He also won the first tournament event ever held at the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas.
David has had numerous cashes in the World Poker Tour events including a third place finish at the Mandalay Bay Poker
Championship in 2007. He also finished 3rd in the Professional Poker Tour Mirage Poker Showdown.
