Antonio Esfandiari headlined Poker After Dark‘s return and “The Magician” headlined a majority of the action during an exciting “Magic Moments” week opener. Esfandiari returned to PokerGO flanked by Jennifer Tilly and a cast of high stakes cash game veterans, who spent the first four hours of the night beating up on their host.

At one point, Esfandiari was the only “Magic Moments” loser and was down over $300,000. He then went on a magical uptick during the final two hours of the night, which started with one of the greatest bluffs in Poker After Dark history.

Facing a nearly impossible spot, Esfandiari risked his entire stack with 7-2 and miraculously forced a fold from Liron Ben-Shimon. “The Magician” showed and collected $500 from every player, but you can’t put a price on a bluff like this.

Esfandiari’s partner in crime during the opening night of play was Jennifer Tilly. The Hollywood actress and high stakes regular has been all over PokerGO during the last month and she was involved from the “Magic Moments” start.

One of Tilly’s biggest wins of the night came against Robert Sippl, who correctly called with top-pair on the flop. The only problem, Tilly had outs and she called them in by the river.
