When “The Prestige” cash games were announced, Antonio Esfandiari controlled nearly all the headlines. That is expected though, as “The Magician” is one of the most recognizable faces in the game and has been a Poker After Dark favorite for the better part of the last decade. What wasn’t expected, back-to-back nights of deceptively big cash games that featured multiple $200,000 pots and plenty of action.
What started as two $50/$100 No Limit Hold’em cash games quickly turned into a massive game that included double straddles to $400. That forced the game to play big, which fit perfectly with “The Prestige” week’s big personality lineup.
Outside of Esfandiari, and NBA veteran Bobby Sura, two other Poker After Dark favorites returned to PokerGO. Hollywood’s Randall Emmett played in the opening night and booked a small victory, while Bill Perkins played during both nights. Perkins registered two huge six-figure wins and was the thorn in Antonio Esfandiari’s side from the start.
The pair collided seemingly every chance they got, with Perkins coming out on top more often than not. Relive all those moments and more on PokerGO and be on the look out for new Poker After Dark episodes later this month.
