Bill Perkins loves to play on Poker After Dark and the game showed him some love back tonight on the first episode of “The Prestige.” Centering around Antonio Esfandiari, there was a lot of mystery surrounding the new faces at the table and the dynamic they would bring to the $50/$100 cash game. As the live stream played out on PokerGO, viewers got a chance to know the players early on, especially philanthropist Darol Rodrock.
The eight-handed table made for a unique atmosphere and created action in nearly every pot as all players started with at least $20,000.
Next to Esfandiari on tonight’s marquee and in the game was Perkins and the Texan filled up the stat sheet in all ways imaginable. The first major hand of the night broke out between the neighbors and Perkins got the better of his friend in a pot weighing in at over $200,000.
